It happened to me when I was 8, my sister taught me a bit of C :D And I was just really curious to see what else I could do.

@mike, good thread idea, but you forgot the "When did it happen?" part. That's the most important part you know

I got bored one day in 9th grade, picked up a book and the rest is history. Plus it pays well and the girls who are into geeky guys are really good-looking most times.

Off Topic: Stop putting advanced tags on all your threads. :)

There's always a reason. Maybe not a GOOD reason, but a reason nonetheless.
