    >> Do you have a little Irish in you
    100% man <3

    On the other hand, I'm 20, started programming in first year of uni (I was ... 18), got all the assignments off second years, but around Christmas time (in second year), I learnt that you can spam, with my blessed system() commands over networs, and that really was the birth of my relationship with programming ... unless you count that time I did pascal ... which I don't.

    32. Programming since about 1999. Started with Pascal, figured out pretty quickly that was a mistake, switched to c/c++, started taking classes at JC, got a programming job, went back to school for second BS, and now I'm done with school and finally living a normal life.

    24. I have a level 60 Night Elf Druid in World of Warcraft

    I used to want to be a programmer, but after running into
    trouble with my retarded game and having absolutely no
    clue on how to fix it, I've decided I now want to be in a band.

    18. Programming since 13 ish. Could've been 14. Anything past two days ago is mostly a blur.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    No, it's pretty much all MMORPG... not to say they don't require strategy, but it's not strategy as you're probably thinking of it. I played it for a bit... it was pretty good.

    Well I still own her, but I haven't touched her for a long
    time! Honest!

    Dude, it takes a ton of strategy for PvP. More than any other
    FPS out there right now, anyway. And the expansion is even
    going to take more. 2v2, 3v3, 5v5 arena fights. :O

    But I don't play anymore.
