I forgot to properly introduce myself.
I am Timothy Foster, and according to the members page, I joined on my birthday. I attend iSchool High. My story for finding the world of programming is quite interesting. In eighth grade, our Algebra teacher gave each student a calculator like a textbook. Mine was previously owned by someone who knew how to download material from a computer, and I had a few neat applications that most other people did not have. Eventually, some of the students found the Draw feature, and we were all amazed by it. Soon, pictures became a favorite. Well, one day, some classmate decided to reset my calculator memory for no apparent reason resulting in the loss of the applications. I went to the teacher to see if there was a way to get the memory back, and she gave me a book to look in. I found the page on programming, and the school was never the same. Lot's of us learned how to program, but not as well as this site explains it. Our programs were beginner quality (a three by three no probability risk game took several thousand bytes). Then came summer. During the summer, I tried making a program and I ended up with an ERR:MEMORY in it, and I had a lot of memory left. I did a search and found this site, and from then on, I knew what programming was. Now, my friends are amazed at my Minesweeper game. I joined this site because my math teacher wanted us to create wikidot accounts, and I discovered that this site was hosted by that. So, I joined. Here I am.
This site is amazing, and I am glad to be part of its community.
