    so, i thought it would be a good idea to put up this thread, and get to know some of you macshackers a little better. i've noticed since joining the macshack crew that it's a pretty friendly place, and there are many regulars who stop by and help. this will be a good chance for all the regulars around here to get to know the other macshackers a little better.

    let us know a little about yourself and your life if you want... maybe some pics/specs of your mac.. whatever you want!

    so i'll start.

    My name is Nick and i'm 17. i've been part of the mac shack crew ever since i got my macbook back in the fall :run:. i'm super pumped to be part of the mac crew now.. i'm running a C1D Macbook 1ghz and 1GB ram.

    this is me:

    and this is my macbook:

    Good idea!
    Hey MacShack, I'm Jordan, 21, from Rochester NY, and I go to school at SUNY Fredonia in Fredonia, NY. I'm a Junior Computer Science Systems Software major, and I write in many different programming languages. My personal favorite has been PHP+MySQL as I've really liked Web Development.
    I've been using Mac's since the early 90's, so I go way back to System 7.5.
    I've owned many different Apple computers. My current machine is a 17" Core Duo MacBook Pro. I've also got a G3 PowerMac at home. I touched a PC for the first time about 4/5 years ago, and hated it. I now only have/use PC's for development purposes and for work. Once I get some time, I'll take a pic of my workstation.
    This is me:

    Sweet Thread!

    I'm Bryan. I'm originally from San Jose, but I live in Vacaville now (halfway in between Sacramento and San Francisco.) I'm in the Air Force Reserve, as a C-5 loadmaster. I'm a supervisor for a Government contractor in my civilian job. I'm also a full-time student at Southern Illinois University (they have a distance learning program at Travis). Needless to say, I lead a very busy lifestyle.

    I've seen 4/7 of the continents, I do a lot of traveling with the Reserves. My macbook goes everywhere with me :) I'm on my first, btw, a Black C2D Macbook. I love it do death. 3 PC's before it, and I'm never ever ever ever going back :)

    A "right now" pic of me, snapped with my cellphone and transferred via bluetooth :big grin:

    Hay :wavey: . I'm 16, and live in Michigan. I'm a Junior in high school. My first Mac was an iBook G3, one of the all white dual USB ones, 800 MHz. That lasted me from December 2002 until November 2006, when i got a Macbook Pro (split the cost 50/50 with my parents, basically a huge chirstmas present). My sister got the iBook as a hand me down, 2 months later the logic board failed :rofl:. Anyways, I've convinced most of my friends to get macs too, and my parents have a Mini for the Family computer. My room is a bit cluttered, but I'm in high school and I've got two huge papers I've been working on, so I'm a bit occupied. Also this picture was after lacrosse practice today, so I'm a bit, tired.

    Macbook Pro is a C1D, 2.16GHz. 1 GB of RAM (I NEED MORE), 100 GB HD, 256MB video ram etc etc. Plus my Microsoft mouse, Apple bluetooth keyboard and a dell CRT :big grin:.

    Oh, and thats my Waterfield sleevecase on the left, love that thing :big grin:

    Yeah, so, I don't know about putting my pic up, but anyways, I'm Chad and I'm a junior CS major. My main focus is user interface design and I'm leaning towards databases for my other specialization.

    I switched to Mac once I realized Vista (winFS was a cool idea, but it got scrapped) was going nowhere and I had way too much fun playing around in the Mac store. I told myself I would hold out for a C2D Macbook Pro, so as soon as they announced the revisions I called the closest store to reserve one.

    Here's my MBP (C2D 2.33):

    Here's the only thing I love more than my Mac (but don't tell my girlfriend):
