    Have you been instructed in computer useage in...

    Primary/Elementary School
    Intermediate/Jr. High School
    High School
    College Level
    Grad School
    Private Instruction
    Other (Specify)

    If you have had no formal instruction choose "Other" and specify none.

    I took a class for adults to use Macs long ago.
    I remember Oregon Trail...never took a computer class in high school, and computer training in elementary school was incidental for an unrelated class. I took classes on MS Office in collage, and have gotten a taste of programming while dealing with World of Warcraft macros and add-ons.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Just rudimentary computer education in school. I'm basically self-taught. My first personal computer (monochrome monitor lol) had a MSDOS/OS and I had to manually type in all the command lines.

    I am currently fluent in seven programming/script/web languages and can also program ircx/n based bots.

    Started on Macs in Elementary School and worked on PCs (usually super old ones) through Junior High and High School. Received the customary Intro. to Computers class and a few electives in college.

    Additionally, I chose "other," since I spent a healthy amount of time in my late teens "playing on the internet" and sort of self-taught myself a lot about computers as a consequence of just being on one all the time.

    Thanks, my boss owned the first company in New Orleans to use computers in business. It took a huge room to fit a computer less capable than today's laptop.
