I joined in 2015 and made a lot of unhelpful answers in my first years (just ask @mayer!) But I am now a lot better. When I'm an adult I want to be either an electric engineer or computer Scientist. Either way, I still want to go to MIT. Lucky that I live in MA! I have always been good at computers and stuff like that (and a lot of other miscellaneous stuff) My Mother even has a picture of me banging a screwdriver on a baby gate! Anyway last year I built a gaming PC with the specs below:
-8 core AMD FX Unlocked (FX-8320)
-MSI Gaming Motherboard (970 Gaming)
-Corsair 750 Watt PSU (RM750)
-G.Skill Ripjaws X 16 (8x2) DDR4 Memory (F3-10666CL9D-16GBXL)
-MSI Radeon R7 370 GPU (R7-370) - Decommisioned as of 2018
MSI Radeon RX 480 Gaming 8GB
-Windows 10 Home 64bit (Win10)
I am experienced with Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista, MacOS, And I presume windows 8.1 and 8 are pretty much the same as Windows 10 in Tablet mode or with full screen start enabled. I am Slowly learning linux on the PC in my room. I like XKCD https://xkcd.com/ and especially the What If section https://what-if.xkcd.com/
I have various skills:
-Picking basic locks
-Making things complicated
-I've almost flipped a golf cart
-kicked a food service freezer compressor and somehow fixed it doing that
-I hate yahoo search
-I have sold 15 pounds of scrap metal
That's about it. one more: I have a very short attention span!
UPDATE: A close friend of mine has died of ALS. I am very unhappy as this happened. His name is jepo. Please go over to the Gleason foundation and give them some money because they gave jep 10,000 dollars worth of free equipment If you donate, as iFixit says, "Aiden Baker will be eternally Grateful."
Psst... If you donate and tell me my opinion of that person will go through the roof. pretty good way to get free upvotes from me!
Also if anyone has ever wondered why I call myself @captainsnowball Meet my bird Snowball!
This is snowball. he is a diamond dove best thing he has a lifespan of 24 years
This thing is getting all mixed up. Oh well (insert OCD rant here) anyway I'm probably the only kid in my school who's gotten in trouble with the IT department few examples of this:
-removing dead projector bulb from my teacher's projector (with permission from my teacher)
-"hacking" into a school network using the show password button on a school computer
I like helping out around iFixit. I hope to become a moderator so that I can remove spam and other junk easier. It would also allow me to keep patrolling and moderating under control.
I will get you on the ban list if you spam or be a general jerk.
