Welcome to Snake's COMPUZONE, a page about technology and how to use it! Despite my rural upbringing, I was lucky enough to have access to computers from a very young age. I excitedly taught myself early versions of Microsft Word and Photoshop on my mother's Apple Powerbook G4, and on her iMac G3 before that. Ironically, I no longer use Office, Adobe, or Apple products.
I went to vocational school and got a certificate of completion in an information technology program, and for some reason I have not really used the knowledge I learned there beyond my dumb hobbies.
