Do you still remember your first encounter with computer? What was it, is it terrible, or the first time, it seems very attractive to you. My first encounter with computer is when was in fourth year high school. It was one of our subject. I have terrible experience with on. Every time I touch the keyboard, my hands starts trembling, maybe that is what they called cyber phobia. But in my highschool days, internet is not introduce, just basic knowledge on how to use computer and we were taught how to type using exact fingers. When I reach college, everything change, specially when I found out about internet, it was very interesting, entertaining. Until now, it seems to me, that without computer, I can't do my other work satisfactorily without computer. How about you guys, how is your first encounter?

My first encounter with a computer was about 8 years ago. I didn't even have the internet back then. I had an old used computer and played games only on it. A couple years later I bought a new computer and I was totally lost as to what to do with it. I didn't even know how to turn it on LOL. I learned alot from online friends I met who helped me learn alot. I know alot more now about my computer than i did a few years ago.

Just like you, i first encountered computers during my senior year in high school... it was not at all pleasant since... computers during those days were quite expensive and my school cannot afford tha 1 is to 1 ratio... so there were 4 students per computer... nevertheless... i love the subject mainly because it is like a breath of fresh air from the other traditional subjects that we had... When i graduated from college... i purchased a very old model and developed my typing skills... and now... i prefer to use the laptop rather than the conventional PC...

I killed a neighbours computer resulting in having to buy a new one. Also when we first got a computer I hadnt really used one at all so I turned it on, big mistake and instantly turned it off at the plug. That was about 6 years ago now but still makes me lol.
