I am a 33 year old male in Calgary who works as a credit manager in the natural gas industry. I am married with one child and no pets.

My interests are computers, politics and religion (specifically my own, Christianity). I am also interested in sociology, however, I have no formal education in that field.

I got involved with Macs about 10 years ago through work. The company had just transitioned to PCs but several of their programs could only be accessed via Macs, so there were a few left in the office and I needed to access them from time to time.

I currently own an original Mac Mini with a 1.25 ghz cpu as well as the last revision of the iBook before the switch to Intel.

My favourite Mac programs are iLife and Safari.

I am a 16 year old KID.. Im working hard this year at school, beacuse I am finishing a year early to travel. I work at Mountain Equiptment CO OP, which is a sweet job. My parents are both doctors in edmonton, where I live. I have a dog and two sisters

I like computers, but I like mountain biking, backpacking, paddling and running a whole lot more than being cramped up inside. I love graphic arts, silkscreen and photography. And am bulking up my vinyl collection to dj and mix using my turntables and synth. I also play feild hockey competitivly as well as I have a strong bias against stephen harper.

My first mac was an apple classic, my dad used for writing his theisis on, but we soon got a apple IIe until one year santa brought us a performa. We had that for at least 8 years until going through a series of old imacs then getting our PC, (bad investment) while my dad was now using his top of the line pismo. Next our PC broke, literaly so at that point my mom had a 17" pb my dad a 15" pb, and my parents bought all the kids 15" ibook g4s. . we also often get "old" macs from my dads work, and i reciently aquired a 20" imac (bubble bottom with lcd) which I am setting us a media center.

my fav. programs would be talking moose, gizmos and gadgets, itunes and photoshop.

Hello

Hello everyone,

This is my first post on eh mac! I am a Canadian living and working in the D.C area. I am 24 years old male and have been using a Mac for the past two years and would never go back to a P.C. Unfortunately I am a Fire sprinkler Designer and do use a P.C at work and it is nothing but problems.

Hope to See you around.

Paul

* Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)

My name is Michael. I'm male, 20 years old, and currently at Ryerson for Theatre Technical Production. This is after spending 3 years at Glendon (York U) changing majors every year and failing to get into film school each of those years as well. So instead I'm studying in one of the arts that I've come to love.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Film and theatre are my top ones. I've been working in and on film for a few years now, and I've put together a decent resume. At some point I'd like it to be my source of income, but for now I do it because I love it. Theatre I just got into really a year ago, but in seeing the comparison with producing it and producing film, I've come to love the 'live' aspect of it.

Aside from those, I enjoy fencing, which I've started up again after a hiatus this summer. I love the outdoors, so I like to walk and hike, even though I never did the whole camping thing as a kid.

* How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved.

I bough my first mac when I decided that I needed something to edit my films on. I knew that macs where the platform of choice for it, so I jumped into the world of macs fairly blindly, having only ever used OS 9 and earlier at school. Of course, my utter distain for Windows may have helped . I also joined ehmac back when I was thinking about going to macs, and everyone was very helpful in my switch.

* How many/which Macs have you owned or presently own?

I own two. My first, my MDD 867, and then later my 15" Powerbook. Both of which I am now looking at selling to replace with a MacBook.

Also, I have a bunch of accessories, as I have a tendency to buy a lot of them (even if I don't use them much).

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

Aside from OS X itself, there are a few programs that stick out to me. One is Mail, which I love. I have about 8 different email accounts, and I have them all organized perfectly into Mail. It's great.

And of course Final Cut Pro. I really taught myself to use it (so I'm still learning new things once in a while) and I was amazing that I could learn such a powerful program so easily. Says a lot for Apple's programming.

* What general area of this great country are you from?

Born and still living in Scarborough, although I do spend most of the time in the core of Toronto these days. One day (hopefully soon) I'll be actually moving downtown.

Hi there,

I'm a student at York University taking a BA Honors in Fine Arts Cultural Studies specializing in Digital New Media. I really like the program and it's given me a reason to learn the ins and outs of Macs again.

I have a special place in my heart for Macromedia Director because I made my first completed animated short on it and it felt like I was using Mario Paint for the SNES all over again. My all time fav (as in most-hours-logged) program is probably Garageband.

I grew up with a commadore PET and a Vic 20 and let me tell you when we got that Mac Plus it was some kind of fancy. After the plus, we owned (I think) a Quadra, a Mac Portable, a Mac Duo/Dock, a 7600/200, a G3 233 (beige), and a G3 433 clamshell iBook. It was at that point we all took an oath that we'd stop adding to the Mac museum piling up in our attic. That didn't stop us from dispersing them across the country though. My Brother had a trusty little G4 which I believe ended up in Palm Desert, my dad fell in love with my first personal computer, a G3 900 ibook, which I brought to Toronto. Not to be outdone he got himself a G4 iBook. With the sudden death of my G3, I find myself with yet another generation of Mac, the Macbook.

I am a classically trained red-seal cook by trade. I was born in Quebec, raised in Alberta, and I currently reside in Downtown Toronto (yay, apple store at Dundas!)

I'm constantly pestering the good people of ehMac.ca with my picky technical questions because well... everyone's so dang nice. And they can usually help me with my problems. Hopefully someday I can return the favour. Soooooo... yeah. Good to meet you all.

* Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)
My real name is Michael. I am 15 (believe it or not), and thus am in Grade 10. I have various job functions that allow me to use the latest technical goodies. I am a computer consultant, partly working with my father's computer store. I always have something on the go, and I have quite the knack for jumping on ideas.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests
I am quite involved with music. I'm currently in a band as lead guitarist and vocal, and we're working on our first album. I'm also in my school's Concert Band program, playing bass guitar. Hopefully I'll find the time to get a website up to share some of our songs.

I'm quite the automobile nut as well. I aspire to own a Porsche 911 Turbo with a 6-speed manual at some point. Currently there are two cars in the family: 2000 BMW 323i (Silver on Black, Premium Pkg. II), and the new 2006 Volkswagen Jetta (Graphite Blue, 2.5). The BMW is probably going to be replaced soon by a newer Bimmer or Audi, so if you are interested in it, let me know

* How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved.
I've been exposed to computers since 1994 (do the math ). I got my first Mac sometime around 1997(?), being an LC II with System 7. I still used PCs primarily up to 2001, when I got a Blue and White G3 with Apple Studio Display. Nice machine, indeed . From then on I was hooked, and I now currently use a MacBook Pro 15" (1.83 with 1.5 GBs of RAM).

* How many/which Macs have you owned or presently own?
I've owned:
LC II
PM Blue and White G3 (300)
eMac G4 (2002)
iMac G4 (700)
PM G5 (1.6)
PB G4 12" (1.33)
iMac G5 20" (iSight, 2.1)

I currently own:
MBP 15" (1.83)
PM 7200/90 (for nostalgia sake)
Newton MessagePad 2000

* What are your favourite Mac programs?
Very difficult question. I'd have to say GarageBand is at the top of the list, just because I can spend hours screwing around with settings and different effects as I practise, and the program is extremely simple to use.

iTunes is another favorite. Quicksilver I use nowadays without even realizing it. Parallels is constantly running Windows XP SP2 in the background, provided services whenever I need it. Mail is also a handy program. I get 25+ messages a day not including mailing lists or spam. Mail organizes things very nicely.

Other than that, too many favorite apps to list

* What general area of this great country are you from?
I was born within Toronto, and now currently live just outside Barrie (considered in an area known as Snow Valley/Minesing). My father is Ukrainian, my mother is British Guyanese. Quite the mix, eh?
