    Hello EightForums!


    I just found this site on google. I enjoy forums & this one could be of good use to me. I don't know alot about computers, but I'm learning what I can. I'm better at software & what-not. Hardware is my downfall.
    I'm 24 years old, between semesters at college. I'm majoring in Computer Science.

    Glad to be here. See you all around.

    Hello ISN.

    Are you really majoring in CS? It's quite hard depending on where you school to complete 4 years with a BS in CS. I majored in CS but eventually started getting headaches after three years of writing and debugging code.

    The endless classroom tests and homework assignments in code logic were a nightmare.

    I finally changed my major to English and studied Shakespeare / Voltaire and philosophy mixed with Foreign Language (French) and a sub major in the Biological Sciences including Physiology and Chemistry.

    All of that was not of much use to be employed, however.
    One could do better as a home building services contractor.

    As for PC hardware, in the CS major, a study of CPU architecture, motherboard and component designs are usually included. Anyone can look up how a CPU functions online but actually writing code in ASSEMBLY that works is much more difficult. A CS major might be required to (well, I was) write code in COBOL, Pascal and C which again is a bugger to debug unless naturally gifted.

    The more you know, the more you don't know.

    Once a college CS major is introduced to CPU architecture
    and how bits are processed in terms of NAND circuitry logic, the headaches begin.

    The students that make it to MS and PhD must be brilliant.
    I have no patience or gift to debug code logic.

    I don't wanna offend anyone but there is a much bigger community and forums at a site called techpowerup. also a lot of stuff on here is getting old since windows 8 has been out for quite a while now.
