    Member Spotlight #7

    Name: satis
    Location: Dallas, Texas area
    Computer(s): I have alot of computers.
    1. (mine) home built desktop, xp 3200+, 1 GB RAM, GeForce 6800, WinXP sp2
    2. (my g/f's) home built desktop, xp 2400+, 512 MB RAM, Geforce 5700, WinXP
    3. (my server) home built desktop, xp 2000+, 512 MB RAM, tnt2 m64, WinXP
    4. (mine) alienware laptop, 3.0ghz P4, 256 MB RAM, Geforce 6800 Go, WinXP sp2

    PowWeb Website(s):
    http://clankiller.com
    http://plasmasky.com (in development)

    What first brought you to PowWeb?
    One of my friends got a site here and gushed about it. I was coming from free hosting on some other provider that probably no longer exists and was continually bumping up against various limitations. Powweb had what was an incredible offering at the time, with a few 100 MB of hard drive space (amazing!) and like 20GB monthly transfer. I haven't regretted my decision yet.

    How long have you been a customer?
    I've been with Powweb since late 2002.

    How much time, on average, do you spend at the PowWeb Forums per day?
    I visit the forums an average of 2-4 times a day. Depending on how much I have to contribute, I may spend from a few minutes to a few hours a day posting.

    When did you create your first web site?
    I created my first site on a free hosting service in 2001, I believe. How far I've come. I remember struggling with html. Now I'm struggling with OOP in PHP.

    What advice would you give a first time web designer?
    If you really want to learn how to build a web site, don't use a web page editor. Use notepad or a text editor with context highlighting. It's really not that hard, and all that things like Frontpage and Dreamweaver do is obfuscate your code.

    What are your other hobbies?
    I game. I post on my own forums ( http://forums.clankiller.com ). I do some 3d stuff sometimes, when I have the time. Occasionally I play the guitar or work with music programs. But mainly I work and play games.

    Favorite books, television shows or movies?
    My favorite books are the Dune series by Frank Herbert, Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and This Perfect Day by Ira Levin. I enjoy reading various sci-fi and fantasy 'fluff' by people like Philip K Dick, Peter Hamilton, Robert Jordan, Piers Anthony and Larry Niven.

    My favorite movies are Dune (the original), Brazil, and Naked Lunch.

    As for telvision, I don't much dig television. There are a few things I enjoy (The Simpsons!) but television is like a desert... really large, but not much there. Well, a desert with billboards. Lots of billboards. Every 5 minutes. Billboards that want me to buy feminine hygeine products.

    What advice would you give a new PowWeb customer?
    Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't be intimidated. Don't be afraid of Google.

    What is your favorite quote or saying?
    Meetings: None of us is as dumb as all of us. (demotivators.com)
