Kids?

Postby wrbonfield » Sat Feb 15, 2003 2:33 pm

This is kind of similar to all of the other topics about peoples' ages, but i was just wondering if there are any teenagers out there, or if computer hardware is mainly an adult thing. 16 or younger?

i'm 13 (few! just past the forum's minimum age) and also probably the most computer literate in my schoool. (just assembled a computer from scratch)

I feel you pain david. I am 17 and had to go through that whole routine with Computer Mastery, or so they call it. It was more of, HEY, LETS TYPE IN WORD...ok, now, to type, press a key. On top of all that, our school is gifted to be outfitted with Macs :evil: :evil: :evil: they claim its for security. Ha.

I totally understand... We have to take this class called BCIS (forgot what it stands for and I really don't care either) where you have to learn about Office 2000. I find it amusing, considering its outdated material. Oh, and by the way, I am 15.
Hold that thought.

Yes. I do know what you are talking about. The entire class is a bunch of morons who don't know the difference between a hard drive and a case. In fact, most of the class thought the case was actually called the hard drive. How do these people make it through school????

AND when the teacher tells them that if they touch the pins for a cable they will break.
