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 Name is Mark Trites-Professional- I work in the construction Industry and work as a professional Tile setter, and Painter. I love new construction and Renovations.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

I love using Macs, rollerblading, working, travelling to places I have never been (I love Ontario for that) I love buying rare and unique things as I collect stuff (retro/ metro)

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

I got involved with macs in 1996 when I bought a Mac plus from Value Village for 14 bucks. It was the best money I ever spent. It got me involved with getting to know computers better.


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

Ever since the first Mac I have seriously owned over 40 mac computers. A few of them were duplicates etc but for the most part they were all unique. I have also gone to therapy to help with that! I uesed to have a list somewhere! Ever since that Plus I have never looked back to windows thank God.

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

All of them, I love itunes, imovie, iphoto etc...the ease of use and the ability to show people who don't own macs how easy it is to do stuff. I love OSX...no questions...it's stability and rock solid foundation.


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

I was born in North York (Toronto) Ontario in 1973. We lived in Bramalea for a few years and then moved to the country (torbram/ mayfield) just off of Airport road north of Brampton. My family then moved west (Alberta) when I was 4 and grew up in the Red Deer area. I spent many years in Calgary as well. Since 2000 I lived in Peterborough and Collingwood Ontario. I now reside in Guelph, Ontario.

ZipperZap has landed!

I'm ZipperZap and I'd like to join your community - I've been lurking around and it seems to be a place peopled with pretty fine folks!

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

My Name is Scott - been male since birth and have no desire to change that and I'm currently retired. I was an educator for 35 years ... and learned a lot!

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

'Other interests' include ... a history buff - all kinds of historical interests ... photography, diving, fishing, flying, ocean related activities, avid traveler - I've been all over N. Am. from Pt. Barrow to Central America - father of four and grandfather of five {so far), deleriously/happily married for the past twenty four years and am good cook, as well! Two cats and a dog round things out, nicely.

Oh, and a bird flew in - landing on my youngest daughter's head - a few weeks ago, needing to be fed whatever it is that parakeets eat. Jenny took care of that - and the bird decided to stay.

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

'Involved' since 1984 ... 'my first' was a Mac II ... then a 2C ... then an si ... and a Quadra ... and then a lot more!

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

At the moment I have a Power Book, a flatscreen and duel processer G4 upstairs. I also have a Dell notebook PC around here, somewhere, but rarely ever see/use it. My Macs and I have been a pretty close 'team' since I bought the first one.

* What are your favorite Mac programs?

I've owned most of them and have used each to some degree or another. My most useful - by far to date - has been Photoshop. I've just completed a three year documentation/digitizing of all of the family records/photos - many that that**extend back to 1652. It's been formidable, to say the least, but now all of the children and grandchildren each have it all on DVD's now - and forever.

I also dabble with video conferencing, on occasion.

I also send out daily humor to friends and friends of friends daily - and have done so since a little after the inception of the net.

* What general area are you from?

I am generally from the west.

Hello everyone, I was referred to ehmac by a co-worker and it looks nice around these parts. I'm looking forward to becoming a regular

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

My Name is David - I'm a web designer at a downtown office, & do freelance work on the side. I'd love to work in the east coast but not sure demand is enough for consideration.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Sports are important. Soccer, snowboarding, tennis & volleyball are the regulars. I come home from the office and actually like going in front of my computer, so I like digital media. I love watching episodes of Samurai Jack & Futurama on DVD and yearn for the return of both.

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

I took Plastics Engineering right out of high school and realized how un-interested I was for it all except one class which was Drafting & Design using Autocad & Cadkey. This is when I decided to take my arts interest and combine it with that of the computer. Took Fine Art & then Digital Media Design. DMD program was my first 'real' encourter with the MAC and I was impressed. Sure I despised the one button, circular mouse, and the fact the sometimes programs just close when they felt like it but dammit they were darned solid

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

Right now I own an ibook that I barely use (find laptops uncomfortable) and would like to save for a nice desktop.

* What are your favorite Mac programs?

Photoshop hands down. Been using it on the PC and now that I use it on Mac its so much better and works on a steadier basis.

* What general area are you from?

I live in the west end of Toronto


See you all around the boards
