I finally joined a java forum!
Greetings, I'm drens (dren = nerd backwards), I've been using java for a little under a year but I've used other languages since grade 5. I use java mainly in high school programming competitions, my games are done in C# usually. But they're identical, so who cares... :p I expect my java skills will come in handy for other things later since java's so popular, so I may need help broadening my knowledge of java to GUIs, which I've always done in C#.
I won't be spending much time here, but of course I'll be asking some questions when a problem turns up and maybe helping out occasionally.
