    Add system specs to profile?

    While doing some searching on a prob. I was having in Java, I found another board using vBulletin that put a nice drop-down menu in the user profile that shows their system specs. I googled to see if this was an addon for vBulletin, and found it here.

    I think it'd be nice to have, since some(many?) like posting their system specs in their sig.

    I like that idea and not just system specs, but development tool(s) as well (such as any IDEs, graphics editors, and whatever else one uses to make programs with).

    Also please a field for penis length and how many girls you have slept with. Maybe also one for how much you can bench.

    Spot on.

    Also, there may be people on this board who use Apple Macs, and I dont think they deserve to be ridiculed for this.

    Good point. Hadn't thought of that.

    Good idea, but in my case I don't think the fields could be large enough to adequately represent my specs.
