Hi my name is Todd... I like long walks on the beach, romantic candlelight dinners... erm... who am I kidding here

Im a male, 35 going on 16, by trade im a professional Chef, trained in upstate NY ( Culinary institute of America, Hyde Park NY ). At one point i did work for HP and wrote most of the tech docs for the iPod +hp contract. ( vacation job supreme )
Been working with Macs since the mid to late 80's, my very first one I owned is ( I still use it alot ) a 7100/80 ( great for mastering due to the SCSI audiomedia 2 card and SDII ), and now currently own a 2ghz, 20inch Intel core duo iMac ( which is my favorite toy of all time!). I just recently acquired a LC 475 in a trade for a piece of vinyl.
I own and operate a underground dance record label, as well as dj'n and producing 'Nuskool Breaks' ( in top 40/ commercial terms, is comparable to Chemical Brothers/ Crystal Method/ BT... but a wee bit harder in terms of bass-lines ). On top of all this jazz I am an admin/ head music reviewer for www.iprong.com, which is a iPod related website/ forums. So in saying that, my most used programs are Logic, Popcorn, Reason, Rebirth and aMSN and of course iTunes.
I currently live in London Ont, but have lived around Ontario from T.dot to Grand Bend.

and thru and thru i am more than a Mac addict... enuf to have a tattoo of a mac symbol on my neck with 'Made on a Mac' in Japanese beside it :O

edit: oh if you want to be my 'friend'...lol.. im on www.myspace.com/djstp1 and the label is here at www.myspace.com/championbeats

Howdy, My name is Roger. I'm a 26 year old male.

I'm originally from Sydney, Nova Scotia. Currently living in the beautiful city of Ottawa with my wonderful girlfriend, Chantel.

The Mac I currently own is an iMac Core Duo (Early 2006) and I joined ehMac in January, 2005. I am a very frequent member, usually visit here over 10 times daily. I started using Macs at a young age with my best friend.. first purchased my own in 2000. (8600/200 upgraded to G4 500)

I took Digital Media Design for Post Secondary education, however, I'm currently not using those skills. $14,500 on a hobby eh?

My favorite apps are in the iLife Suite, they're simple.. yet effective and more than enough for my needs. (Mainly iPhoto, iWeb and Garageband.) I consider myself an Apple Enthusiast and dabble in such things as the ehMac Radio Podcast and Online DJ'ing (once in a blue moon these days.)

Yep, that about sums it up.

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

My name is Don and am a semi retired business owner in Edmonton, Alberta in which we manufacture decorative iron spindles for stairways. I spent 42 years in the newspaper industry, the last twelve years as COO of a major Canadian group of 165 newspapers.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

I collected vintage cars for many years and am currently in the process of selling off the collection. Gone is my 61 Triumph TR3A which now resides in California. Also gone is my 55 Mercury Montclair HT, now in New Mexico. Gone as well are my 57 Chevy HT, now in Idaho and a 1980 Riviera with 23,000 original kilometers, lost in a fire in January of 2005. Still have a 70 Monte Carlo and a highly customized show winning 49 Meteor coupe.

I am also an avid camper and own a 29 foot class A motor home and hope to tour most of North America in years to come.

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

Got involved with Macs in 1984 when we bought a few and paired them with an old newspaper system called Mycro-Tek. It sped up production and opened the door to many improvements over the years.

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

Presently just a MacBook Pro and an eMac. Have an old Lombard that still works just fine as well. I have owned many macs over the years, too many to list here.

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

iPhoto, iTunes and Appleworks. Can't live without 'em.

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

Now from the energy capital of Canada, Alberta, but was born and raised in Saskatchewan. I hate it when the Eskimos play the Roughriders in the CFL. Can't decide who to cheer for.

I joined ehMac in February of 2001 and had submitted over 13,000 posts. Until last week that is, when I suddenly lost over 800 so am now working on getting back to that 13,000. Just kidding but the post numbers are an issue that needs attention as every time there is an update, you lose posts.

I enjoy my time here in ehMacland and hope to be a member for a good long while. If you are new here, welcome. I can assure you your time here will be memorable.

> Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)
I play a male on TV. I am a graphic designer by day – smartass any hour of the day that ends with o'clock. I spent a good deal of my graphic design learning curve in newspaers making ads and laying out the paper the old way. I started at a biweekly in my home town in high school. Moved on to the University paper at school. And from there the Windsor Star and London Free Press before I landed where I am now, lead GD on-site as part of a team that manages print production for a national company.


> Brief summary of some of your other interests
I have played hockey (roller and ice) for about 28 years because I love the game and am Canadian so I am obligated to. I also play once a week with a recently retired NHL goalie who plays out with us and is likely to be out less this season as he has been hired by an NHL team to goalie consult. I used to play roller hockey with a current Florida Panther defencemen - no he's not allowed to play anymore

I also dig on Macs, travelling, photography. I went to University of Windsor and studied Visual Arts & Communication Studies.

However, most importantly (higher than all my other hobbies) is chillaxing and partaking in chicanery and tomfoolery with family and friends!

And I was at the last game ever at Maple Leaf Gardens.


> How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved
For Christmas 1984 Mom (aka Santa) brought into our house the very first and just released 128k Macintosh. Apples are all we have ever had. Well, save that and the Commodore Pets that Mom used to bring home from school and we tried to wreck.

Since I have had my big-boy jobs Apple are the only computers I have used. That's going on 18 years (I'm only 35 though).


> How many/which Macs have you owned or presently own?
Currently… 3 (G4 Cube; 15" & 12" His & Hers 1.5Ghz Powerbooks). In the past... if you include my direct family we've owned over 35 Macs since the first classic which Mom & Dad still have.


> What are your favourite Mac programs?
Hands down, easily Adobe Illustrator. InDesign is a close second of late though. Then, perhaps Lode Runner… or Crystal Quest


> What general area of this great country are you from?
I hail in the 519, and I come from good London… the Canada one. But I wasn't borndid here. That happened in the dent in the map between Chatham and Sarnia.
