This is a good article. The boy found these bugs because he enjoys tinkering with computers - not so different from a lot of people on this forum when they were his age. I think this illustrates that the fun never went out of computing.

Most 12 year olds spend more than 90 minutes a day playing the wii or wanking, and they aren't getting any money from that.

Don't be a dick. You probably spend a lot more than 90 minutes a day on something less fruitful, like moderating this forum.

You mean trolling. I don't see anything wrong with scouring forums. Amiga users/ex users are also bloody intelligent, compared to Wintel users etc.

I'm trying to get support for my SSD which is slow and all the guy did was give me a link to a clueless fanboi forum thread. btw if you were thinking about getting an SSD, don't. The technology is still too young.

I stuck a $90 32GB SSD into one of my C= netbooks and it flies.

No, I meant posting. I think people should spend their time however they  like but to call someone out when they are doing basically the same thing, spending time on a computer, it  is more than a little hypocritical.
