    Ah, ok. Feel better now

    Anyhow, someone checked 46-55 so I don't feel so bad.

    started with Qbasic when I was 14 was using mac and linux at home and didn't know of any mac/linux ports so I soon started with C instead. I'm 16 now.
    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    Freshman in college. I started programming in C++ when I took a year-long course my senior year of high school. I had begun programming on a TI-82 the semester prior. I'm now pursuing degrees in computer science and mathematics.

    Started with JavaScript around 13 and then gave C++ some tries but didn't really start untill last summer to try to learn it.

    I am 46. I wrote my first programs in 1977.

    I am 17.

    I started learning C a few years ago, I learn it better and advance every so often. I have started to loose interest mainly because I don't have a whole lot of time to keep learning and I haven't finished a few of my programs.
