    Middle aged professional who decided it's probably better trying to figure out what the people in IT actually do rather than complaining all the time.
    You're only born perfect.

    I'm 37 years old. Been programming ever since BASIC on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. I was probably 16. Only now seriously studying C++
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Yet the response was completely different if I recall correctly.
    Yeah, I think you said you were on a Mac. It turned me on.

    If a Mac turns you on... you have more problems than your pickup lines...

    Hah, I'll bet I could throw out hundreds of better pick-up lines than you. Punk.

    Edit:

    Oh, and Macs are freaking sexy; they're especially appealing as I primarily use my computer for music (both listening to and recording), and Macs seem to be more efficient when dealing with media.

    The only one that works for me is "Do you have a little Irish in you"... and that only works if they're really, really drunk...

    I don't need em, see the avatar, yeah that is me and my girlfriend. Btw, I have nothing against Macs, but I do prefer that members of ones own species should be the ones to flip the switch into on position.

    I don't like your red dress.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.
