Sparrowhawk's Profile

A profile... why not.

Some things I enjoy doing: reading, mountain biking, hiking in the mountains, anything with computers, er, most things really. I love to ski, and just wish I could go on a slope longer than 180 metres.
Partly inspired by enjoying DinkC coding, I went to college to learn a bit of Software Development and am now working with some local developers, using VB.NET and C#.

I have many things I should be doing so writing a profile seemed a good way of putting them off.

I live in northwest England (south originally) and, um, that's about it.

I'm making a D-Mod and have some ambitious ideas for future ones but don't expect anything soon!

I used to use IE6 and when IE7 came out I used that for a little while until it died and screwed up IE6 while it was at it. Someone said I'd need to reinstall Windows to get it to work so I gave up and tried Firefox instead... Love it! IE can stay dead

My OS is Win XP pro, which I really like. Not that I've tried anything else, I just know the workings of Windows and can't see the point of changing right now.
I'll maybe try Linux one day, but by the time I need to change OS Vista will hopefully work properly so maybe not

MS Works 8.5 has a word processor but not much else, and it's far too simple compared to Word, which I'm used to. The word processor is ok for general stuff but Open Office is better for anything more complicated, plus it comes with the things I don't have, like Excel (Calc). I do find Open Office quite confusing sometimes though, especially the weird help system, but I don't have much choice unless I shell out on MS Office which ain't gonna happen anytime soon
