I kinda collect some comics and a few pez dispensers
thats me just really laid back kinda guy unless I am in my Jeep , then I get just a touch of Road Rage , but just the smallest amount , its not hardly even noticeable at timesHeat
Early in life I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose the former and have seen no reason to change.

Hi, my name's Kevin Peterson. I'm a freshman at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. I'm a trumpet player (see nick) and majoring in Music Education, and I aspire someday to be a college band director, however I plan to start my career in high school.
Let's see... what else... I technically have two cars, a 1996 Grand Am (which I plan to sell soon, it is nickel-and-diming me to death with repairs), and my dad's old 1992 Plymouth Voyager (far more reliable than the Grand Am) with almost 176,000 miles on it. I guess my hobby outside of computers is gradually working on the Voyager and attempting to get it to burn less oil.
My personal best overclock is a Celeron 1.0A running at 1.53GHz. It has since been backed down to around 1.47, but it's still running there a year and a half later.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed reading this synopsis of me and WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!

My name is Mike and im the US Army stationed at Fort Rucker, AL. I'm married with 3 kids and currently work as a Lab Technician at a research lab. I've always been a computer geek ever since i fried my dads 386SX while toying around with it. You learn best by breaking things first.
I am thoroughly entrenched into the gaming community since its my second love next to my wife and kids. I am a Senior Operations Staff member for www.teamwarfare.com and am also a head administrator for www.cyberxgaming.com. Gaming is really what got me into Overlclocking because you know gamers are always looking for that extra edge. I love to educate those in my community about hardware and making the right decisions when it comes to upgrading. I get my nickname from being a long time University of Michigan fan even though im not from there. A friend of mine got me hooked on them while i was in high school and i haven't looked back since.AMD Athlon 64 Opteron CAB2E Week 0548 2805 mhz (255x11)

Well like a few in here I am easy to decipher: Stedeman = S tephen T edeman I am a fellow "comp-u-holic" and at times a real pain in the @ss (mostly as the devil's advocate). I am also married with child and a part time Machinist student and a full time Automation Spec. (for about 6 more months). My main hang outs are the Classifieds and the Cooling sections
PS look into Folding as an added computer addiction .

I'm Tyler. I am a senior here. I usually stick around in the Networking, Internet & Security dept, and I am also a casual in the OS forums.
I am a college student, studying in Networking (woah, big surprise there!). Currently on co-op as an IT Security Administrator for a large company. I'll be back to school in January, graduating September 04. (Hire me!). Besides all that, I must mention my anime addiction, and my love for photography.
All of the other unimportant details about me can be found in my profile. I am usually friendly, and don't bite. I'm always open for chat via PMs or through messengers."Some people, when confronted with a problem, think 'I know, Ill use regular expressions.' Now they have two problems."

Well, you can all call me Malpine. I first used this name in an online RPG based on Robert Jordan’s “Wheel of Time” series. Actually my first name is Douglas and I am a psychiatric social worker.
I found the forums about two and a half years ago when my old computer bit the dust. Actually, I killed it by running it pistol hot with no case cooling for several months. That not withstanding, I had had enough of tech support that did not exist (that computer had a sticker on it with a toll free number to call but none of my calls were ever answered).
Given that, I decided to finally take responsibility for my own computer and learn how to build one from the ground up. As my last computer had had a case cooling issue, that is what I looked for on google. One of my searches turned up an article on the front page about a refrigerated case. So by and by, I made my way to the forums. I read quite a bit for several months before I registered and made my first posts (search for them if you want to see a real noob).
Over time, I learned the way of the forums and at some point I must have impressed someone because I got a PM a few months ago asking me if I was “feeling blue”. I guess the rest is history.
Also, IMOG: I brought Toby_23 in here a few weeks ago. You owe me a dollar.

Good [Insert time of day in your part of the world here] to you all.
I'm Red.Or RDD. Or any other shorter way of typing reddeathdrinker you can think of! Real name? Alasdair.
What's Red Death, and why do I drink it? In the 1800's, Wm. McEwan, a brewer in Edinburgh, made a slightly stronger beer, made with roasted barley, to export to British troops serving throughout the Empire (we ruled the world back then you see.....) Look at my avatar. See what Tux is holding? Yup, a bottle of Export. Called Red Death, because of a: the colour of it's container, and b: if it's not your usual tipple, you feel like crap the morning after......and I drink it. If you're old enough in your country, go wrap your laughing tackle round a pint of this fine piece of brewing history.
I'm an Engineering Technician (Propulsion) in the Royal Air Force, working on the Nimrod MR2 aircraft at RAF Kinloss, on the beautiful Moray coast in Scotland. I do a lot of computing at home, mostly on Linux. I am a keen mountaineer - click for bigger pic!
That's me on Liathach 4 days ago (from this post!)
I also make scale models of aircraft, armour and sci-fi stuff, have a wife and two kids, two cats, a dog, a budgie and two big fish tanks..........
Enjoy our forums, you can only make them better!We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
How do you recognise something that is still technology?
A good clue is if it comes with a manual...

I'm a retired professional firefighter. Started messing with computers in '85 when I was secretary of our local union, and since have gotten into upgrading, repairing, and now building systems(all self-taught, with assists from here). I've been here since the old iteration of the forums, back in the late '90s.
Single best OC was getting a 300mhz Celeron to 600 with aircooling. Not often you get 100%.

I'm Captain Slug
Nobody obsesses about size more than me
Often times I find myself taking apart random objects.
Virginia is where I'm living at the moment, but that could change.
Every post I make is aimed at being helpful.
My other hobbies include: Art, 3D modelling, College
Your computer is probably better than mine.
However, I put alot of effort into my machines.
Each machine I built is tailored to perfectly meet my needs.
Altogether I've built and modded 20 machines.

I've been overclocking for about 6 years or so. I don't post much anymore, but I'm always here.
I go to school at a community college in Minnesota, but I don't have a clue what I'm going there for.
I work at a gas station.
I'm completely addicted to autocross, and during the summer I autocross my Miata regulary, sometimes driving nearly 5 hours each way just for 5 or 6 minutes of seat time. Sometimes I even win my class, too.
My current computer projects are a mini ITX system for my car to play music, and eventually a complete upgrade of my main system to better suit my current needs.

I'm Christoph, although I used to be "IdeaMagnate." I also used to think I was a mouse, but that was a long time ago.
I really like playing with and using my computer, and am not especially fond of overclocking. I've got plenty of power (but never enough RAM) in my 2 modest duallies (XP1600 and PPro 200) and I've found that OCing can cause the GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) to break. I use Gentoo Linux, which makes custom compiling everything very easy, so you could say that my software's overclocked.
I enjoy scripting, reading about Unix and Zen and taking long walks on the beach at sunset. I usually spend my time here in the Alt OS forum, where I try to explain that backing up to /dev/null is a bad idea, no matter how fast it is.
I also write limericks when I get stressed out or stay up too late.

I'm Keith and I'm a senior in mechanical engineering at Auburn University. I stumbled across these forums a couple of years ago when I was getting ready to transfer to Auburn, and I'm still on the forums usually on a daily basis (although I do more reading than posting). I'm usually up at insane hours doing homework or running to the engineering computer lab to work on the current Matlab assignment at the last possible minute. Yes, I'm a procrastinator (I'm working on it though). From the knowledge I've gained on these forums I've built my own computer, overclocked an Athlon XP from 1.53GHz to 2.3GHz, built my own inline watercooling loop, and built 4 systems for friends and relatives. My aunt also had an older PII computer with some software problems and said I could have it if I thought I could fix it. 1 reformat, 1 Windows install, and a couple of drivers later I had a perfectly good PC which I gave to my mom, who didn't have a computer.
My user name is also the name of an exciting jello-wrestling event held somewere in Birmingham, AL. I heard the name one time and thought it'd make a really cool forum name.
