    46. By the way. What exactly does age have to do with an interest in computers and the quest for knowledge? I feel fortunate that I got to "cut my teeth" on an Atari 1040ST. Bet a lot of you "whippersnappers" haven't ever laid hands on one of those beasts!

    HaHa! Yeah I once did got my hands on those beast (emulator style baby) but deleted it, do to the wacked out graphic and boring gameplay. Not to offend anyone, this is just my opinion.

    It would be interesting to know what jobs you've all got and if you love/hate the job you do. Me I am unemployed. And need to get trained in something and start a career in it. I'm going no where at the moment.

    daveg - i have just recently decided to make my career in computers. i had been doin a little graphics work here and there, and then in march of this year i said, "hey, i am going to get into web design!" i picked up a book on html4 and have been at it since. i don't really know all that much about this stuff compared to some, but i am buyer/webmaster/graphic designer for a computer store in maui, hawaii. i love my job. the pay is ok, especially since i just really started getting into this stuff in march. i make about $26,000/yr USD. i also do freelance web/graphic design, and probably pick up another few hundred a month doing that. i am also working on starting an isp with the co-manager of the computer store, and we are going to use that store as a way to market that service. (we are just renting modem pools and the same company handles the tech support) i feel really good about the direction my "career" is going, and i just started doing this in march. but more than just knowledge, (i have seen people who know more not progress as fast as i have) here is what i think will make any career. ATTITUDE! i am tenacious about making things happen. if i know something needs to be done, i do it. if there is something i don't know (which is all the time) i find out about it. people seem to respect that more than people who have all the knowledge, but dont apply themselves. as i keep progressing and learning more and gaining experience, i know the salary will follow.

    I'm 42 and I remember using Punch Cards and paper tape. If you don't know what I mean go to the library and blow the dust off the oldest computer book you can find. LOL
