Smile My Reintroduction..

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

Here I am, a guy from Calgary, doing graphics at a TV station for their morning show. In January, I'm being let go due to restructuring. This means I'm in limbo career-wise right now.

Brief summary of some of your other interests.

My main passion is film. I have an interest in all aspects of it. I just finished 10 days at the Calgary Film Festival, taking in 15 movies, 3 film talks and as many parties as I could to help get my name out there.

I'm presently developing some ideas for a short film.. you never know, it may take off.

I'm also running the Calgary Screening Club, people who get together and see a movie, then relax and talk about it after. We're always looking for members!

How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved.
How many/which Macs have you owned or presently own?

I've been a Mac owner since they came out! I started with an original Mac, and upgraded as many times as possible. I've run the Gamut.. Original Mac, Mac Plus, Colour Mac, Centris 610, Power Mac 7200, Emac, and now a G5 iMac.
I seem to be the mac expert in my circle of friends.. They come to me for advice and training. This is why I think I should be working at an Apple Store somewhere. I've trained more people than I can count or remember on various Mac programs and the O/S. Some people call me a "Mac Zealot", I prefer to be called a "Mac Evangelist"

What are your favourite Mac programs?

My favourite Mac programs are Safari, Mail, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro Production Suite. I'll try any Mac programs if they look interesting to me. I just finished editing and creating a DVD with iLife from my family vacation to Disneyland.

Anyway, that's me. I thought I'd reintroduce myself to the group.

Thank you for taking the time to (re)introduce yourself. Sorry to hear about your being let go due to restructuring. We'll be pulling for you to quickly get a (great) new job.

Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)
Hi, I am Kray, I'm 27 years old, I live in Calgary and sneak around in the dark peeping in people windows trying to get a glimpse of their universal remote controls.
I was born and raised in the backwoods of BC by Blind Albino Pygmie Dwarfs and was thought to have been growing a 3rd arm in my first three years, turns out it was just a tree branch that had lodged itself in my armpit.

Brief summary of some of your other interests
I have an unhealthy obsession with my cat, Macintosh computers and Peanut butter and Celery (Not all at once mind you). I also enjoy video production, but shy away from my desire to create porn, photography and listening to music (Helps keep my mind occupied)

How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved.
Who said I was involved with a Mac? It's all lies I tell you! It's heresay! Nothing happened, I swear.

How many/which Macs have you owned or presently own?
I have a B&W G3 that I hacked with some lighting, a DP G5 and an original Snow iBook. I have a crapload of classic Macintosh computers, can't remember which ones, so that will have to do till I retrieve them from my Aunt's basement to get the models.

What are your favourite Mac programs?
Final Cut Pro, PhotoShop, Aperture, Toast, Transmit, Adium, Dreamweaver, Cleaner,
Rumpus, IE 5.2 (HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA, sorry, couldn't resist.).

ZipperZap, I am now starting my my 36 year in teaching. I have taught in rural, suburban and urban schools, from grades 2/3 up to high school, and now at a university level. My wife talks about me retiring, but I tell her that "I have many miles to go before I sleep."
