Okay, everyone, the wait is over...I'm here; I'm here!! Let the bells ring out; I'm here!! :biggrin:First off, I'm in the USA, living in North Carolina. The name's Bradley Warner Smith, but you can just call me Brad. I'm 19 3/4 years old (big 2-0 in May) and working as an IT guy (aka. systems admin) at a charitable organization that I suppose should remain nameless. Last year I attended NC State University majoring in computer science. I'm now taking some time away from my studies but plan to return in the fall.Tinkering in 3D and videography are two of my bigger hobbies. I mainly use Cinema 4D XL 7.3 and Final Cut Pro 3. I'm hoping that I can add just a wee bit of talent to the awesome pool that Nigel and Shane have already formed for Star Fleet modeling and animation.I can program Pascal, C, C++, Objective C/C++, Java, HTML, and a little bit of AppleScript. I can fare well with any unix shell prompt and even *gag* DOS. I'm certainly no 1337 h4x0r, but I can probably find a lot of info about you and can get into most marginally-guarded computers. Yeah, Angelina Jolie is a looker, but she couldn't "hack" her way out of a paper bag.
Most people think it's odd for a big computer geek to use Macintosh computers, as I do, but I challenge anyone to find me something that I can't do on a Mac. With Mac OS X (now a breed of FreeBSD and Mach 3.0) I can run anything a Mac, Unix, or Windows box can. Plus, it's comforting to know that the million bugs and viruses and other general problems of Windows PCs don't apply. You insult my Mac and I'll have your head on a platter faster than you can say "zealot"!(Edited by Bradster at 7:13 am on Feb. 27, 2002)
