We're back this week with another informative and fun edition of the weekly Forums Spotlight! This week in the Forums Spotlight we've highlighted discussions on ATI & nVidia, where people learned to program, rounded cables, screensavers, and more!
The Forums Spotlight is a highlight of just a few of the new topics posted in the SharkyForums, where over ten-thousand enthusiastic computer users post daily for help or to discuss the latest trends and products.
Each week in the Forums Spotlight, we take several of the most popular, insightful, or even controversial threads and present them to you for easy digestion. Feel free to add your own thoughts (subtract the profanity, please) and help us multiply the reader participation here at Sharky Extreme (and you thought math was tough...). We've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! If your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week.
Without further ado...

Technical Support Q&A: Screensavers, How Necessary Are They??
Online you can find hundreds of thousands of screensavers. In fact you're OS probably has a few pre-installed for you. One forum member brings up a really good question, with today's monitors, just how important is it to use a screensaver?
General Hardware: First Cmputer Twang...
One forum reader wants to know when you first experienced that little twang that told you loved computers - when your heart told you what you were using was something you loved and cherished. Talk a walk down memory lane with a few of our forum members.
Operating Systems: Fed Up With Win2k!!!!
One forum reader is just totally fed up with Windows 2000. It seems that a lot of memory is being consumed, even after applications are closed down. As one reader suggests perhaps this is more a specific problem with Windows 200 memory management settings rather than the OS as a whole.
Programming, Coding, and Scripting: How Did You Learn to Program?
It is another trip down memory lane as our programmer sect of Forum members discuss how they became involved in programming, where they learned it, school programs related to programming, and much more!
Cases and Cooling: Them Rounded Cables
One forum readers wonders if the rounded cables support older udma33 hard drives. Our knowledgeable forum readers add some thoughts on support and issue some warnings on rounded cables.
Video Cards: Is it me, or are ATI AND nVidia copying off each other...
Here we have two competing companies - who seem to be taking each other's ideas and using them. As one forum reader points out it seems that nVidia has taken ATI's idea of numbering their video cards, and it looks like ATI has started creating many neat little graphics demos to show off there cards just like nVidia did. Check out this forum thread as other readers post a few more ATI and nVidia similarities...
