Hi....guess I better stop lurking ( tho I don't think I'll have much to say anyway Wink )
I'm an Aussie sheila, living simply, in a ghost town in South Australia.
I love reading  on here, even tho most of it is beyond my comprehension....too many years on the clock to really get into all the coding stuff...more a "user" than a coder anyway.

You can't compare PSV with Man U, cause man u is way better (because of the load of money they have). Feyenoord sucks big time this season. As they do every season:)

Interesting trivia:

I just noticed this thread was started by one Darryl, back in March of 2005. Darryl is/was the 11th person to join the forum and has only made one post: This one. He hasn't been around since January 2006 and yet this thread is constantly revisited and probably the longest and most viewed thread on the site.

Isn't it amazing the difference one person can make? Darryl's legacy has lived on throughout the years and he may not even know it.

Hello everyone.

I am Proximo.  I have been using or accessing Donation Coder for some time now but I am now going to be more active. 

I am a 3D Designer/Animator by profession and my current position is Computer Aided Design Manager.  I teach Mechanical Engineers how to Design world class products in 3D.

I have been working in CAD for over 20+ years and started writing scripts to automate some task and installation routines.  I really started appreciating the ability to write something on my own that made my life easier, but never considered programming.  I simply thought it was to difficult and a scary world for me to venture into.

I became a big supporter of Open Source software and eventually found Donation Coder.  I enjoyed using the programs that others freely shared to make my life easy but I started to find that I could not always find what I wanted.  The software either had more features than I wanted or not enough.

This is where my passion for learning programming started.  I enjoyed using others programs and decided that it was time for me to learn programming and venture into this crazy world, at least from my perspective.

I am excited about learning and hopefully sharing my own programs in the future.  I decided on C# for my own reasons and I am currently in the learning process.

I want to thank all of you who share your knowledge and I wish to pay you back in a similar fashion in the future.

This is my second hello post since my first hello was under the wrong topic. I am not a programmer in the slightest and found my way here because someone linked Mouser's 2-XL emulator on another board. I was then glad to see I found the license home for url snooper which I have used for years.

The really aggravating part is that while I was looking at some of the apps you guys have come up with, I said to myself "oh wouldn't an app for this be great",  I then got side tracked and I cannot recall for the life of me what I wanted to suggest--AHHH

I have been trying to leave Windows for Linux for over a year. I am running the lastest Ubuntu on a partition with Windows on another partition. Ubuntu is working for me for the most part. Peripheral drivers are the worst problem win any Linux system. Too bad you guy's don't code for Linux.

I purchased Total Commander when it was WIndows COmmander. IMHO it is a must have program. Ubuntu has a similar program called Krusader, it even has a TC mode.

I found you through April Russo (@app103 on Twitter) because I am both graphics and programming challenged. Well, I could learn programming but graphics....  hmmm.... I better stick to wordsmithing and driving traffic. Anyway...

I have been using Ubuntu for about a year and am always campaigning for open source and to create a better world by our choices:  supporting small businesses instead of corporations.

There are always apps I wish I had that I haven't located so if anyone wants to write some cool tools for power Social Networking users and bloggers let's collaborate. I'll explain what we need, you can code it, I'll test it (if it will run on Ubuntu or in Wine or I can borrow a Windows pc) and then I'll promote it for you. Ideally it would work in any OS.

I am also looking for some logo and graphic design people to recommend. I just published a post about that and it includes some tips about Freelancer Challenges. If you have anything you want promoted or you do work worth recommending look me up. I'm @GrowMap wherever you find me online especially Twitter, FriendFeed and cliKball.

Hey there, seems some Aussies are here, don't see a lot of them online so this is a pleasant surprise.
I'm a retired Engineer, have a dissability (spinal) so interacting online in something worthwhile makes my day. My passion is good software, and engaging in the fight against Malware .

Hey all, i'm Jamey, 18, a student in the UK, between high-school and uni (waiting to find out my exam results). I started my programming life with web-progamming(HTML, CSS, JS, PHP) back in 03[ish]... Since i've dabbled with loads of languages, love programming, write small utilities for personal use and some bespoke software for a few people.

I also ride BMX. Love Music(Electro/Indie/Rock/DubStep/Acoustic). I am a photographer, that kind of goes with my web-design background.

I've been helping people out at TechSupportForum.com, and started using AutoHotkey for small scripts to speed up repetetive tasks that users needed to perform to fix their pc/etc. And through AHK's script bank i found DC. Have been here a few days, not yet very active, but hope to become more active soon.

Feel free to chat =] Info on my profile.
