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

I'm a 25-year-old male working as an IT Manager at a commercial printer.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Camping, cottages and patios. I love being outside in the summer. Not a big fan of winter though. Also: beer, wine, Audis, motorcycles, photography.

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

I've been using Macs since a very young age. Both parents work(ed) in the creative/ad world. I do use Windows and Linux machines daily, but my computer has always been a Mac.

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

Too many list. I still have an Apple IIe stored away somewhere, if that gives you any idea.

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

I don't think I have a favourite program. I use Safari, Mail, Terminal, Adium, Photoshop and Lightroom on a daily basis.

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

The centre of the universe: Toronto, ON. I also spend a lot of time in Ottawa, ON.

* Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)
21-year-old male student studying Business Administration (maybe getting into marketing...).

* Brief summary of some of your other interests
I'm interested in most things creative. This includes watching & making movies, playing guitar, reading (favourite books: A Song of Ice and Fire), visual design, etc.

I'm also a big fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

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

My first real experience with a Mac was when my dad bought a G4 Tower. Quite the powerful machine back then (~5-6 years ago I think). I worked in Final Cut Pro for a few video projects (personal and for my dad's business); FCP was one of the main reasons I fell in love with Macs.

Since, a couple friends have purchased a Powerbook G4 and a Macbook Pro. Using these has only cemented my decision that I will "switch" for my next computer. This switch will probably happen by August, when I will buy a MBP 15".

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

None.

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

Final Cut.

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

Hello,

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

Male. Professional...well, perhaps not too professional. May go back to being a student on part-time basis to do some math courses and then may go back to school on a full-time basis to get another degree of some sort.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Playing with my little girl who is 13 months old and a real handful. I watch the Vancouver Canucks play hockey on the teevee and read the occasional book although I'm not reading anything exciting at the moment. I have been known to do some mountain biking and snowboarding, but not usually at the same time. I also enjoy playing with the 3 cats that let us live with them and I do like watching CBC television.

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

Purchased an iBook in 2002 and I still use it at work on a daily basis. Not everyday because I don't go into work everyday. Perhaps if I find some money I'll consider purchasing a PowerBook or a Mac Mini.

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

1 iBook. My wife has owned 1 eMac, which we gave to my brother and now she has 1 iMac, which she is kind enough to let me use.

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

That will vary with the time of day/month/year. For browsing I use Camino. For work I use MS Word because I like its nice integration with MathType. I've been playing a bit of Kill Monty and Lux Delux lately. But, probably my favourite program at the moment is Graph Sketcher. I really like stickies and iCal, too.

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

I grew up in Delta, BC and I have lived in Prince George, BC; Golden, BC; Guelph, ON; Kamloops, BC; North Vancouver, BC; and Cranbrook, BC.

I've only posted here a few times in the last few years and I'm not too sure how much posting I'll do in the near future. I was surprised to see so many of the "old" names around.

I was fully unaware of this. I'm only a terrorist if you get scared of niceness.

I was an Amiga guy, but got seduced by the Mac IIci, then the Quadra 840av. My job at the time took me into evil PCland where I have resided since. Recently, I was gifted a 6400/200 and a Beige G3 and it has rekindled my Mac interest.

I have owned a single copy of almost every 680x0 Mac, some I had several of, but only kept my "babies", the IIci and 840av until recently as noted above.
