Hi, I'm Dreamaker. So everyone else is doing one of these so I suppose I better. I didn't do a great one first time on TBDL and probably scared off half the forum, so this one should be much better (and it's a good example of why not to judge people by their intros).
For image editing I prefer Paint.NET for most tasks. It's easy to use and quite fast. I also use Photoshop when I need to bring in the heavy guns. I can use GIMP, but I'm not very good at it, so I only really use it on Linux. I don't use any special software for web design (unless the programming code is complex, in which case I use Aptana), and usually it's all done in Notepad++.
As for choice of OS: Anything that isn't Mac. I've had bad experiences with every Apple product I have, except my iPod Touch.
Gaming: I have an Xbox 360 Elite, (broken) DS, GBA, PS2 and Wii. I originally had the Premium, but it died, and as it wasn't 100% of the time for the RRoD, I ended up paying for a replacement myself. My computer has: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz (6MB L2 Cache), 4GB RAM, ATI HD 3650. It's a Dell Studio 17 laptop, although I will be getting some cash during the summer and plan on building my own desktop. I also have emulators for PS1, PS2, GBA, Gamecube, Wii (quite buggy this one, suprise suprise), SNES, NES, N64, Genesis etc. My iPod Touch has emulators for GBA, PS1 (70% speed), SNES, Genesis and NES and playing Pokemon Emerald on the iPod is nearly superior to on a GBA, thanks to the better screen.
Weird Stuff: Well TB/DL obviously. I'm quite fine with being a TB, but not so much with being a DL. I'm also into water sports "lite", i.e. wetting pants. I first started getting into it around 12, at which point I spent a lot of time feeling like crap, as all the sites were definitely the wrong sites (deeker and co.) but stuck around as I couldn't find nowhere else to talk to other people with similar interests. Then I found TBDL.
Sexuality: I don't like the thought of having gay sex. Beyond that I'm not sure. I normally say asexual, as I've yet to find myself sexually attracted to anyone (male or female, real or porn).
Reading: I read lots. My favorite books are Terry Pratchett's discworld, and the hitchiker's guide. Unlike most avid readers I know, I'm not as into Classic Literature. I just find the language to archaic and it bores me in most cases.
- I'm an atheist. I was a Catholic until around 12, because it was the norm. After that I was an agnostic (Translation: "I'm not sure") until about 15, at which point I decided the whole lot was rubbish IMO.
- I do well in school. I'm the highest achiever in my class, and have been since I was 8.
- I'm not a party person. I have my friends and stick with them.
- I have dyspraxia. I was diagnosed late. When I was 12 I was told I might have dysgraphia or dyspraxia by a doctor, and since then several other medical people, but due to the slow medical system here, was only offically diagnosed earlier this year.
Feel free to ask any questions you want.
