    I am a total mac head, and I live in Palm Springs, California. I was wondering where everyone else is from, and if they have ever been here. Does anyone live near this place?

    You can see where a lot of people are from just by looking at their info or postings.

    I went to CA once. I had a lot of fun, not sure if I'd want to live there, but if that's where I get a job I like or something similar I'd move.

    I'm a East coast man, just can't understand some things on the west coast...like high school "campuses" and pools everywhere, and no snow. Weird...though Steve lives their...thats cool, I'd like to visit him. :)

    I'm attending the University of New Orleans (UNO)...

    currently I'm seeing how the schools are in Oklahoma City for my move later this year....

    btw....yes being connected through a school network will affect others being able to access your system... ;)

    How about a sub-thread: What schools do the mac heads attend?

    I'm a part-time student at San Diego State University, getting my BA in French, minor in Spanish. I'll be entering the Master's degree program in Educational Technology this fall.
    BTW, I do work full-time as the head tech for a language lab, so don't think my user info is bogus.:p

    Considering I'm in San Francisco, I'm sure there's a joke to be made about "gay arse" towns, but I'm too sleepy to come up with it right now.

    I live in...

    I'm a Japanese Mac user, in Yokohama to be precise. We've been Mac users since the Color Classic II, Performas, Power Macintosh, and we now have two iBook 500s, a Powerbook G4 667, and an older iMac 333MHz Blueberry.

    Japan has far less apps for Mac than the US, so I get many of my apps from the net, but it's painful since I only have a 56k dialup... (IT'S HELL!!!) but next month I'll be getting DSL!!! HORRAY!!

    Anyway, I wish they would open retail stores in Japan too... The corner of stores with Macs are SAD!! There's one Powermac with Mac OSX 10.0.3 (NOT EVEN 10.1, those PC freaks!) with hardly any mouse space!

    But I put up with it, because I believe Macs are the best, and I'm not going to give into the Windows XP taunting every time I walk in a PC store! I am a music guy, and Macs are the way to go! I know! Also, the Firewire and video stuff on the Mac is the best! A Dell at school has an IEEE 1394 port, but it doesn't work with Adobe Premier (NO SOUND!!!) We worked with it for an hour, but nothing happened... And next door in the music studio (these jerks use a Mac for music, but a PC for video! they're nuts!) a music teacher is editing footage on iMovie! It was like an Apple commercial, in real life!

    japan

    tokyo, to be precise. i am fully indian (as in from india), but I have lived here all my life. And I go to a catholic school (im not catholic), and have been brought up in an american environment... so i know all 3 cultures. I can also speak all 3 languages perfectly (Hindi, Japanese, English)... although I need to get some typing lessons...:p

    By the way, you japanese macheads out there, if you're ever in Roppongi, drop by some time.:)

    I'm returning to school after a 4 year exile...unfortunate for me I screwed a round lots while I was younger....but I suppose it makes for a more serious attitude the second time around? ;)

    Location and School.

    I live in Chicago working for a firm trading options, commodities and futures.

    I went to school at Michigan Technological University and studied pure computer science (not that I'm being an 'pure' elitest here, I just mean not management information systems or the likes--just pure CS) with a focus in mathematics.

    Good question, eye. EdTech started out as WWII video training lessons in the '40s, and has progressed from there into everything from corporate training to software design for kindergarteners.
    We learn everything from analysis of learning problems to studying motivation and environmental problems. And when we're not stuck with theory, we get to do some hands-on multimedia design.
