Just being curious what everyone's experience in the PC world is.
I would like to get to know the level off experience off the members @ cd-freaks.
Please do not show off with Certificates (you can state them though ), just tell how long you've been working with PC's and building up your knowledge.
I've been working with computers since i was 7 (33 now)
My first PC was an Exidy Sorceror with 16k internal memory and no HD or disc drives, only a Keyboard attached to a TV and Basic as programming language :P.
Over the years i made myself an expert on DOS and windows.
By hardware trouble-shooting i also build up lots off knowledge about motherboards, add-on cards,drivers, firmware, jumper, etc....
I always loved tinkering with my system and tried to make it run as smoothly as possible.
Not that is matters, but I have a bachelor degree in IT (got it in '96) and work as Oracle Developer.
