1. 16 (17 in less than 6 weeks)
2. England
3. I have general knowledge of Win ME, 95, 98 and 2000. I have some Question & Troubleshooting knowledge, and am a heavy user of Windows. I know a bit about setting up hardware and stuff, and my dad is a computer engineer of over 25 years, so I can always count on him to help

2. Tacoma, WA
3. Knowlege of DOS (woohoo!), Win 3.1 (haha), 95, 98, ME (evil!), 2K, and XP. CompTIA A+ Certified (As if that means anything these days...). Worked as a computer technician in a computer repair shop for one year, promoted to head tech. I also know networks (setup, repair, conflicts) and hardware (setup, repair, tweaking, modding, conflicts, etc.)

But personally, I'm not like the best out there. Microsoft said I was an advanced computer tech when they called me for a usability study, but I know there are a bunch of guys that are much better then I am.

Hey NTLDR did you take courses privatly on learning that, or did you actually major in that field, as in go to college to learn that?

You have alot of experience, it seems you would be a very good candidate for Windows Beta Testing.

If you want I can check if they are looking for server beta-testers, my uncles step-son is a candidate beta tester, so he has been testing for awhile, I believe they had taken him off the list, but he can still get infromation. If you want that is I don't want to go do something with out your permission, of course you will get payed, you would have to pass a small test, and either have a phone interview or something.

I applied, but I am to young :-/ and don't have "full knowledge" of the topics.

Anyways PM if you are interested, I will try my best to get it for you, if you like.

By the way sorry for going off-topic :)
