I believe he is not a native English speaker. In many Romance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romance_languages) languages, if you directly translated the term for "I am thirteen years old" into English, it would come out to "I have thirteen years," as proved by two posters already with French and Spanish.

I made a HTML website on the school computer and suddenly the schools server blocked all HTML so you could not use the schools Windows 2003 server on the Internet for a week because of that...

Same as for the space key. Apply key in your favorite application. Then use the command used for printing, usually File->Print

Or don't they use printers anymore, nowadays?

but i know c++,i
Which I doubt ;) "knowing" a language is more than knowing the syntax. Do you know data structures and algorithms? Can you do anything with it?



installed ubuntu,puppy linux and mandriva,
Install Windows and get it set up, that would be a challange. Those distros are really easy ;)



i can hack and use exploits,

Don't be a script kiddie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Script_kiddie). It may be something you can brag about to clueless people, but you'll get no respect from people who matter.



i can compile linux kernel,and mch more!

Do you understand it ;).

I suggest you read and understand this very important document: How to be a hacker (http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html)



believe me,it toke 2 years!im ambitious

Two years? Funny, I got where I am in two years also. I can program in many languages, I am a developer on an open source project (which I started https://launchpad.net/sysres), maintain a programming wiki, and have done other things.



and,,i help big people in this forum and other forums

Anyone can say that about themselves, how many people say that about you?



kids rocks!:)

No, there is no such thing as a kid. Once one acknowledges they are a kid, they can no longer use that to describe themselves. I was 13 once. I wasn't as smart or experienced then, but it was essentially the same as being an adult (just with no experience or information).

I'm 22

Taught myself:
Linux (if you can call it that after getting loads of help on here)
Stencils & Photos (http://the-ovin.deviantart.com/gallery/#_featured)
Skateboarding (http://www.youtube.com/user/theOvin)

My list seems way too short for how highly I think of myself.

I believe he is not a native English speaker. In many Romance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romance_languages) languages, if you directly translated the term for "I am thirteen years old" into English, it would come out to "I have thirteen years," as proved by two posters already with French and Spanish.

HE FORGOT POLAND!

No, seriously... they do that too :)

which probably means it also applies to the other couple surviving western-slavic languages around.

I'm 18 and taught myself:

-Linux
-Windows
-HTML
-CSS
-How to fix cars

And I'm going to tech college next year to formally learn how to fix cars. And I'm still learning more things everyday about the above. \\:D/

If I wasn't so modest, I'd be perfect :)

I'm a 40-something teenager, well past the error code, and taught myself a number of things not to do in life - too many to mention.

I'd be more inclined to read THAT thread but doubtful it would last long :)

Read the US Constitution, tell me where it mentions knowledge as a qualification to anything :-)

Age may not matter (unless you are a cheese), but it is something that is normally easy to measure.

I saw the typo, but that would require me moving the mouse and right clicking to fix it. Or worse still, having to type in the correct letters!

I'm 35 years old and am self taught in everything I've ever done.


As for computers..... I got a very late start. My first computer I ever owned was bought in October of 2005..... 3 years ago.... I barely ever used the Internet before that besides sending work resumes from craigslist and checking my 1st yahoo email account (that I needed a librarian to help me set up).


I spent my first year learning Windows Xp and I quickly found open source apps like Firefox and Thunderbird.


I learned basic html/xhtml/css.... enough to make my own page, and soon after that I found out about Linux.


2 solid years into Linux and I have basic Linux skills to the point of being able to figure most things out on my own.


I build my own custom kernels, compile all my apps from source with CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS/MFLAGS.... sometimes with custom patches, I do all my own gtk-2.0 themes, my own icons, and I feel confidant in being able figure any breakages out.


Installing Arch while in console is fun to me, and I learn more about console everyday.

I think he might be a native spanish speaker, when you say "I am 13 years old" you say "Tengo 13 años," which is literally "I have 13 years."

Same thing in french which is J'ai 13 ans.

Ps : I'm 24 years old and I can not build a kernel, but I can satisfy a women.

I`m 33 and I taught myself
mandolin
didgeridoo (not sure if I can spell it though)
bass (upright and guitar)

I`m also quite good at
cooking
football (the proper sort, not that girls game where they have to wear helmets and stuff)

Still don`t understand
computers
girls

Crashie can be set as internet explorers homepage therefore crashing it every time the blue e is clicked, which is funny a bit like changing a mobile phones language to Russian (if the owner doesn`t speak Russian). It would be nice to install firefox first though.

Well said! :)

I'm 18 and taught myself guitar by playing ~6 hours a day for an entire summer 2 years ago. I taught myself how to build computers - much to my mums displeasure, at the age of 14 she walked into my room to find the new £300 computer in pieces over my floor. She has since learnt I'm very capable with computers, and now I get to fix everyone's computer when they come to me saying 'It doesn't work!'.

My usual response to that is 'Ah yes, there's your problem. You seem to be loading Microsoft Windows... Have you heard of Linux? :D'

Also true in French: "j'ai * ans", which means "I have * years".



I was going to post the same thing until i saw that you said that. actually the very first thing i thought was that he spoke french.

It's a poor solution, anyway, merging all those threads. I feel that some moderator ought to prepare threads for N=1 to 120 with a title of "My age is N a and I taught myself ..". Also, some moderator ought to move posts to successive threads as members become hopefully older.

I'm 35, and have been using and (still) learning linux for the last 11 years. Theres a lot more to it than most people imagine.

Also have learnt a bit of perl, HTML, learnt how to home build a 64 bit PC from parts, can strip and rebuild an engine.

I am now currently learning the ongoing skill of Parenting, as I have a very intelligent 5 year old daughter, and also Irish Gaelic.

Don't feel odd. I'm a newbie to both ubuntu & linux in general (I only lost my linux virginity (so to speak) in August lol). Life is all about learning new things, doesn't matter what age you start or how long it takes, all that matters is being willing to learn and use your knowledge appropriately I'd say.

I'm also pretty much a computer novice too as it wasn't a strong subject in my school (damn religious school >.<) but now I've been exposed to what is actually possible in the field of I.T. it has captured my attention full force and is currently top of my learning agenda.

of course, if ubuntu was around when i was 13, i wouldn't have failed at using red hat or mandrake and might not have ever went back to windows.

i'm 23 and i learned how to play saxophone was i was 9.

i'm 23 years old and i have a lot of friends.

i'm 23 and i love myself.

i'm 23 and i have the hottest fiance in the world.
