Interests: I love watching and playing any kind of sport. I love to golf in the warm weather days and dream of being somewhere warm golfing during the cold days. :tazz: I love to watch a good movie, my favorite being The Shawshank Redemption

I've been working with computers since 1995, when I purchased my first computer which was a 300MHz (which ironically only ran at 250MHz lol) Pentium I computer running Windows 98. Since then I have always loved working with computers and have culled my knowledge over the years.

I first found out about G2G while doing research on a malware problem for a client at work. Since then I have been here on a regular basis and plan to keep it that way since this is by far the best PC Tech Help site on the Net! I love the people here and they are great to hang around with. I also have an inkling to want to help other people and this lets me do just that. Nothing feels better then when you get that reply in a topic that says everything is now working as it should and thank you for all your help! Can't beat that feeling!

Goals: Its best to aim high so when you fall short of your goal your not discorouged, So my ultimate goal is to one day rule the world, but I'm hoping to fall short in the area of maintaining a good marriage withe my wife until we both die of old age and raise my children in a manner that will enable them to obtain thier goals and dreams.

Favorite Food: No one else put this in thier posts, so why not: Home Made Tacos.

Hello everyone!

Username: ZEUS_GB
Status: Trusted Tech
Profession: Tech support (yes i've had the anykey question!) :tazz:
Location: England
Age: 25
Interests: Computers, playing games, music.
Favourite bands: Nightwish, Disturbed, Hoobastank, Evanescence, 3 Doors Down, Ash, Sugarcult, Jimmy Eat World, Finger Seven, Green Day etc...
Favourite games: Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Half Life, Undying, Doom, StoneKeep, Hexen, Hexen 2, C&C Tiberian Sun and many more i've forgotten.

I've been in to computers since I first played on my brothers speccy when I was six or seven and if I remember correctly the first speccy game I played was an asteroids clone. Since then i've used C64's, Atari ST/STE's, Amiga's, various PC's and various consoles.
I've been tinkering with PC's since the days of Windows 3.1/MS-DOS 6.22 (them were the days!) so like quite a few people i'm pretty much self taught. After a while I decided that I might as well turn my hobbie into a job so that's what I did and i've been in the industry for 10 years doing various tech support jobs.

Username: Jrm20

Status: Trusted Tech Staff

Profession: Currently in Cisco networking

Location: Florida

Age: 20

Interests: I like some sports like basketball and motocross. I like to ride fourwheelers, going mudding. Pc's interest me of course. Sound systems are awesome and interest me, also I like music. Playing games now and then doesnt hurt at all. I dont hardly play as much as I used to. Building computers is fun to me and I enjoy helping people on the forums. I have been into hosting servers for awhile now. I rent a server for my clan on sof2. I rarely play now but we are elite lol, "not joking". If you saw me you wouldnt think that I was into computers really. A friend down the road got me started into computers in 1997 or 1998, before that I wasnt into computers at all but I enjoyed playing the games on them. So, basically the games got me into computers. I play games like everyone else does today in time. Just about everyone plays some kind of game today, it doesnt necessarily mean your a geek or "geeky". I dont consider myself a geek but I like pc's because I enjoy it. Oh yeah, the good ole years 1997-1998 lmao the pentium and pentium II was born lol... I remember that like yesterday... I get along with everyone and talk to everyone, you cant go through life judging people if they are geeky.

I have computer electronics certificates, CompTIA Network +, Learnkey, A+ Certification Training (havn't taken the final test yet), Cisco CCNA 1 soon, and a few others. :tazz:

I came to Geeks to Go after Meeting Kat on IRC. This is the first forum to hold my interest though I have belonged to many different forums. I love web comics and programming, although I'm always interested in Videogames. Most of the time I am on the move and most often I am posting from work or school wich limits the length of my posts. although if there is soemthign I need to follow up on I will take care of it when I get home.

I am a first year new media student although I am starting the program with 5 years IT expeirience under my belt. (yes I started in IT when I was 14).

My first computer was a comodor 64. on it I learned the value of videogames :)
