It's about my experience. The girls I know do not like computers at all. Even those, who study at computer since in university. This experience caused result that, from _my_ point of view, possibility that a girl likes [or understands] some computer technologies is less then the possibility that she doesn't.
In your case I believe it's different. May be better word to describe this is "unusual".

I am thinking about home. I am an Australian and have been living in Amsterdam since the start of this year. On sunday I will be returning to Sydney and I am a bit apprehensive about it because I will probably run into my ex-girlfriend eventually and I dont know how I will feel when I see her again. Also I am thinking about food but that is a constant for me. Pasta, pizza, thai noodles or curry, those are my choices for dinner tonight.

I looked at your profile because I saw a post from you in the lounge. My day has not been too bad. I finish at this company on Friday so I am just tying up a few loose ends.
Have you ever been to Australia? Your English is excelent but spending some time in an English speaking country is probably the only way you will ever be really comfortable with it.
LOL - I came here because I saw your post about a guy writing to you, assuming you were male. To be honest, I know your name from the forums, but while 'Corinna' is obviously a girls name, with 'John' after it, I'd not assumed you were female ( nor had I assumed you were male, I mean, why would I care ? ). So when you said they had even clicked your profile, I couldn't resist
Unlike the dude from Egypt, I'm not going to stalk you though..... My wife would kill me.
hmm but your wife isn't reading CP. Otherwise you would say something like "because I love my beautiful wife so much and she is so great and cook good and... blahblahblah" and not "My wife would kill me"
I am here again because there isn't better place to say
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CORRINA!
Now that's crazy. Yesterday (okay, day before yesterday and.. uh.. hmm nevermind) I celebrated my friend's 21st birthday, today I celebrated my other friends 21st birthday, Colin has 21+21 birthday... girl how come you are 25? Nevermind, you look like 21
B.T.W. my english is hardly oxford standard but your tagline might be better as "Please inform me about my English mistakes, as I am still trying to learn your language." (though technically it's not my language!)
Hehe.. I guess I somehow like lady programmers... Since I think you're the first one I saw... Maybe because I like the idea of lady's having a more proper and elegant documentation... I'm a newbie programmer specially regarding C#... I only started last night.... By the way, I'm Raymond from the Philippines... I need to use C# with in our thesis and I have to meet a deadline by the end of the week so I'm a little bit desperate... I have to use some of your classes... Sorry... I'm really a beginner... I plan to create my own once I get the idea on how... For now, I thank you dearly...
I enjoyed it immensenly to once again read science fiction that is really science (instead of social/suicidal) fiction.
Maybe I am spoiled that I can't fully accept the setting of Halbsichtigkeit for what it is - carrier of your story, and my mind starts to poke holes into it. Sometimes a phrase, a picture or a single word makes me disconnect from the story.
Whatever, I hope that this once one will be recorded as "interesting debut of a successful author"

From the whole, there's nothing "wrong" with the setting. It just sometimes feels like a "geeks utopia", perfect as planned. I think this is necessary to keep your focus on the things important to you (like free chocolate ), but it can feel constructed.
Don't get me wrong - I'm partial on this. It is my main problem, but also what makes your book unique, makes it stand out (for me more than the Synnie part).
For me personally - maybe if you'd left more open (so everybody can imagine this society as utopian or orwellian as s/he likes)...
Whatever: I'll never look at your Steganography the same way.

You're missing the chance to take influence on a book before it gets printed...
The pseudo-utopian society "changes" a lot in part 2, as I describe it a bit more. I have just posted a paragraph about my government on literaturportal.org... all laws are made by the national AI, which is running on a mainframe beneath the tower. The humans from the administration offices only write statistics and suggestions, and then the ruling program decides what to do. Cool world, isn't it?
Please inform me about my English mistakes, as I'm still trying to learn your language!
I was pointed to your article on avi processing by another member Andrew Kirillov , in reply to my post : [http://www.codeproject.com/script/comments/forums.asp?msg=1231272&forumid=1649#xx1231272xx]
after having gone through your interesting article , i have noted that your app extracts images(or frames to be technical) from the avi as BMPs , I am currently required to save them as jpegs / gifs (as my project is web based).Could you pls give me any hints on how you aplication can be modifyed or by useing some other classes i can output the frames as web compatible formats mentioned above.
First let me apologise for missing out on the extra “n” in your name in my last post .
Thank you very much for you prompt reply , your article will be really useful if I can just make enough sense of it !!. I am a beginner in C# and basically a web programmer(PHP,ASP).
I will keep you informed of my attempt at creating the web-based frame grabber component (thanks to the pointers from your article).
On a different note : In your posts there is this line included at the bottom:
“Please inform me about my English mistakes, as I'm still trying to learn your language!”
Well I think you should change the “learn your language” part to “learn this language” or “learn it” or something like that, after all English doesn’t belong to one community or country in particular anymore, but has become pretty global in its usage.
