I prefer the hardware side of computers mostly. I like putting computers together, aswell as trying to find problems. Its fun for me.

Though, games are good aswell

I've never been fond of programming, was part of my Computing course in the first year and i basically failed it. Programming never really seemed enjoying to me, not like building your own computer, and then taking it apart again when its time for an upgrade

But thats just me

I doubt its as fun as making babies though


Making your own program would be cool, but from what ive heard, it takes ages to learn the different programming languages, and then you have to figure out what your programs gonna do, then plan it all.

Too much work for me.

I like building computers as they are fairly easy to make (sometimes), you get to see all the parts that make the computer itself, where all the parts go and plus, if theres a problem, you know where to look

Lol - got me there!

It does - I haven't even started! I had the money for Visual Studio but the guy moved; then I had to wait 3 weeks and the money didn't last - used it to by my Website and vBulletin - then I had my money thing month and I saw a 3 for 2 on Sharpe Books! So its going to take me ages to work up 40 to buy Visual Studio and start learning!

Then again, its the same on the hardware part, no money, no parts. Plus, depending on the parts, its gonn a cost you a fortune anyway, but you have to pay for most things in this world

Basically, i dont have the patience to sit and learn a programming language, then write my own program. I'd find it more enjoyable replacing a mobo or something

Damn my short patience

I suppose. But 800 for the P4HTEE or Pforeightiey! Seems pretty good really! That bastards is a fast thing - how long he will last is not known; he isn't 64-bit!
