Hey there, name's Mike. Just joined up on this forum as a result of hearing about the week 10 summer giveaway and so far I like what I see!
I'm back in college after a failed foray into the horrible, horrible world of automotive and the mafia-like flat-rate system. I am studying Computer Engineering and am in the process of completing my Sophomore level course work. In my spare time I'm always online, my nose deep in some forum on automotive, computers and the manufacturers that make their parts, and furthering my education in whatever way I can. My girlfriend and I are also gamers of a sort, though she can't play much during the week (data entry is rough on her hands) and my PC is lacking in horsepower for how I would prefer to play my games. I have built and tuned several different computers for several of my friends and acquaintances in an attempt to build up a portfolio of my work to do this on a paid basis on the side, possibly getting to the point of trying to get some builds sponsored moving forward. AMD or Intel, I work with 'em both, though for the moment my interest is fixed on AMD because of their restructuring efforts and the emergence of their upcoming hUMA architecture starting with FM2+. I may not be in here EVERY day, but I will be here most, and I make every effort to be a productive, CONSTRUCTIVE member of whatever community I am a part of. See you guys around!
