I'm quite proud of myself. This is the first forum I've joined with intention to contribute.
I hope I'm doing it right.
Anyhow, this is an introduction, yes?
well.
I am Chris. I live in Levin (a lovely little town in the lower North Island) and currently go to Waiopehu College.
There, I am year 12, but doing Level 3 Calculus.

But anyway.

I like Nokia phones. I own a beaten-up E50 and a 5140, one on Vodafone, one on 2degrees. currently debating which to stick with.
I also like to play around with simple audio equipment and power supply thingies, but yeah.

The PC I am typing off is some delightfully pathetic thing. It possesses a 2GHz Celeron, 1GB RAM and an ATI Radeon 9550.. and a 160GB hard disk. Not bad, considering all parts are salvaged from dead PCs.
It is running Windows 7 build 7600, and Ubuntu 9.10. I'm only keeping Windows so my mum and sister don't complain about none of the computers having Windows.
 
I once owned a PSP. But it was stolen.

That is all from me I think.
I hope I'll be able to help people here.

  "delightfully pathetic thing"


Ahhh this must be the part where I launch into long and vague stories about the 'good old days'...anyone else remember the good old days? Remember trying to get the last K of conventional memory out of the 640K so you could load up that one killer game (TIE fighter for me)...which is now available on a mobile phone...when you had to set the IRQ on expansion devices with jumpers, ahhhhhhhh the good old days *looks wistful*

Haha.. What I meant was, some sod stole it in July. It was quite depressing: I'd replaced the power port with a mini-B USB port cause the charger broke at the plug. It looked shoddy, but it worked. Plus, a mini-B USB cable connected to a 5V, 2000mA power supply is cool.
Cool Hence the cool sunglasses here. =P

My 'delightfully pathetic thing' isn't so pathetic anymore! Pentium 4 HT @3GHz.
System load averages haven't exceeded 0.5 yet! =D
