God Im so old...
I started out in computers by screwing them up myself :P
Uh, also, tell him to connect a computer and the monitor and all that stuff too. That's how I got into computers...
Oh, and make him build one some time...

I started with my computers when I deemed them too slow. Overclocking is my root and continued to be.

Letting him tinker and haiburis advice is good. Work with him. Father son projects.

Money

Do t actively give it. But make him work for it. And also let him spend it.

He needs to understand the value of money. That he needs to work for it, that the stuff he uses is important. BUT he must not feel like he cant do anything becuase you wont let him spend it.

He needs to learn to carefully plan and spend his money.

I should have, but we already have files stored on the local hard drive and he won't let us move...

 

Yup.

 

Definitely father-son. My father wasn't much of a father to me. I don't blame him. He was usually busy trying to earn money for my family. I fared pretty well without him. I only played soccer with him a few times and tennis with both of my parents, but I kept on winning.

 

Definitely agreed.

 

I need to think of the thing that made me really conservative of my money. Probably just my mother telling me not to spend all of my money and to invest it so when she gave me $100 on the birthday this tradition started, I never spent it and even put it in the bank on a CD (certificate of deposit and my mother did that for me).

Very nice. but yeah, preferring Windows 8...

 

I like the look of Metro over Aero Glass on the desktop though, and I can always get something like Stardock Start8 or a free alternative to regain the start menu. Other than that, I can't wait for linux to become more mainstream. That and it's basically impossible to touch the critical files without administrator permission. All of those files are sealed away, unlike in Windows or Mac OS X. Linux ftw! OpenGL performance on Linux also surpasses Windows, on which Microsoft forces Direct X and their thread being removing OpenGL support on Windows.

The last one I will contest. I have a full ht setup downstairs. Its not just wire goes there and there.

Its a lot of setup. What unit will work with what and plug what where with what cable or tht one

Well, the wiring in the walls were already set up, and I couldn't reach the high places on the wall where the smaller surround speakers would be mounted.

 

I helped my friend's family clean up their setup. My friend was just watching me and she was gaping along with her parents when I was done. I was only 9 or so at the time and I set up everything in 1 hour, which is pretty good I guess but it was soooo easy.

I started with computers when it became obvious everyone else in the family was electronically challenged. 

 

@Everyone in the market for a new monitor, have you looked at the Dell Outlet? http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineSales/Online/InventorySearch.aspx?brandId=222806&c=us&cs=22&l=en&MODEL_DESC=ALL&s=dfh

 

I got my 2713 from the Australian outlet, refurbished for 375AUD.

I got my first computer when I was 9, I think it was Windows ME + Windows 2000 dual boot. My dad gave it to me and just told me to play with it.

 

Something he said really helped, he told me that "just play with it, you can never break it, worst case I'll just reformat it." As a kid I didn't really know what he meant by reformat and all that, but I did understood "you can never break it" part. That's how it all got started.

 

Well let's exclude over clocking, which can potential fry your hardware. And also let's exclude "physically" playing with the computer....

That's the first place I go if I want to find a good monitor for a good price.

First thing that you took apart, go! Then I'll go to bed.

 

I think it was an old sony A/V receiver, followed by one of my classmate's USB flash drive which had an inconsistent connection so I covered all of the connections with graphite and it worked perfectly fine after that. They still have no idea how I did it. lol. A bit before that was a laptop hard drive and my laptop. Next was a dead Playstation 2.

 

Later on was 3 old Lenovo ThinkCentres, after that was this desktop (which was fairly recently).

Hrmm just found this: http://www.decibullz.com/shop/custom-earphone-molds/

 

Looks very interesting. Probably wouldn't fit too many BA based IEMs looking at that nozzle size though.

I broke lots of things when I was 5, I had a thing for breaking playing with printers because of all the bits that move magically. tongue.gif

 

I think all you have to do is keep him interested in computers, he'll learn naturally, it's in his blood. wink.gif

It also makes you good at puzzle solving if you learn to figure things out at a really young age. I know I've benefited.

I just played games like puttputt and Spy Fox on the PC when I was 2, I ended up getting High-Speed Internet for my birthday when I turned 3!!! Then I played games like line rider, I ended up console gaming for a while, then used my moms laptop to play mine draft and the like. Later I pitched in and got an I7 desktop with an HD6450 for games... It ran horribly, so I was going to upgrade it, and started getting into the whole building of a PC, so I saved up for a decent I5 rig and got a graphics card later (All when I was 11, I worked setting pins). Then I just have browsed forums like Head-Fi, AVS, XDA, Overclock.net, and have eventual become tech savvy. I also always kept up with kickstarters, CNet, and all the CES releases. When something with my PC went wrong, I had to fix it myself, varying from ram swaps to resetting the BIOS via a jumper or editing registry files to remove a virus. If something wrong happens, get your kid to fix it, and tell him that if he wants to get on the internet and play PC games, he has to build it himself, and you can let him browse parts and reviews while you're watching... Also, get him into HiFi! xD

4 definitely. Mouth looks nice.

 

 

Hey guys, I made a new style for my MAL list but don't know if it is as easy to use/read as it is cool looking.

Your opinions?

http://myanimelist.net/animelist/Chasenuva1

Yes, I know there are some problems with scrolling and I noticed there is sometimes a problem with small screen resolutions aligning the text correctly.

I plan to fix both of those tomorrow if most of you think it's readable.
