    Umm... Elandis is significant in three ways.

    1. It's the largest type of deer in the world. Zoology runs rampant in my household.

    2. It's a character in one of my mates old fan-fics.

    3. It's a branch of my family.

    Umm... but before we discovered this it was indeed just a random name.

    Back on the subject of programming

    Well I got into programming in grade school (I think 7th grade) on a AppleIIE. Working with BasicA! What a joke. I got into making text adventures, graphics (what a joke again), and amusing my classmates. Then when I got into high school I took Advanced Computers I & II (still AppleIIE!) and scored A+ in both. When I graduated I recieve a Honor In programming (what a Joke again!!!). Then I learned about IBM machines....... they blew me away and discouraged me from going into progamming! Anyways about 5years later i bought my FIRSTcomputer! Then while working one day, a co-worker was talking about programming and a spark went off and I bought Beging programming in Visual C++4.0 at Babages for about $40.

    Well thats my story.
    C++ Is Powerful
    I use C++
    There fore I am Powerful

    Once upon a time ...

    I started about hmm...5 or 6 years ago with ASM on my beloved AMIGA 500. Why...hm...I can't remember really I just liked it. It also gave me a different point of view to games and programs. While many people just said "boy that game suxx", I intended to say "well, maybe it's not as good as others, but it's a damn lot of work to do somethin like that!"...

    My older cousin, who studied computer science at that time later introduced me to Pascal, which I quickly left for C. In the end I got to C++ and sticked with that until today...

    The End

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
