Who here knows things about computers? Who here thinks they know things about computers? Seeing as this is a web-based forum, it's unlikely that people who know nothing about computers are going to be posting on it, so I was just wondering, to what degree of computer knowledge do you possess?

I, myself, am probably a typical computer user. I have a fairly average system (speed wise) that I use to play games on as well as chat and surf the 'net, and occasionally write an assigment or two. I only upgrade my computer when I; a) have the money, and b) need a speed boost to play the latest games. That is the main reason I spend money on my computer: to play games.

Unfortunately I am depriving myself of the more valuable side of computing, because I am generally too lazy to help myself out by learning something useful about computers, such as a programming language. I will eventually get into programming of some type... Maybe. I prefer the hardware side of things over software.

So, what do you know about computers?

I'm currently taking an advanced course in ICT...bleh...So I already know most of the basics and some extras too...but most of the stuff I know most about is download software...bug killing and stuff mostly about the internet...methinks

I'd be one of those people who think they know things about the computer. :P

What do I know about computers, eh? Well, I know how to create a basic site, like on Tripod or something like that. I also know how to "manipulate" myself around problems that I might be having in whatever program that I'm using. Other than that and basic knowledge of computers, I'm taking a computer info tech class in school.

i feel i know alot about computers and how they're supposed to be used.

i feel my handicaps while using computers are scripting, making digital pictures and HTML. but other than that, i feel i could teach quite a few people how to use a computer.

I know several programming languages, including Visual Basic, HTML, XHTML (extensible HTML), CSS, some PHP, and mIRC Scripting (which really isn't a language, but...). I could probably also build my own computer but I don't have any extra money to... I know quite a bit about them as well. Heh. I'm done ranting.

I know how to build a computer as well. That is what I would consider to be fairly basic knowledge, edging onto the 'moderately difficult' category. When you think about it, it's not that hard to place a motherboard inside a case, screw it in, whack in some RAM, a CPU, a HDD, CDROM... etc etc. Pretty basic, in my opinion.

Well, prolly the most technical stuff I know is HTML. I'm not advanced in it, but i've been doing a lot of it recently and getting better at it.
Other than that, I know how to turn my computer on and off :D

I've never built my own PC, but i think I know the basics in most of the general areas, and a lot in web/graphic design :lol:

Figuring out where everything goes doesn&#39;t take much skill at all. It&#39;s getting all the correct parts to make everything compatible and fast that&#39;s the hard part

Ah, but you do. What kind of a person, who is not a "nerd", nor a "geek" would be an administrator of an online forum? :)

Compatability isn&#39;t such an issue, but speed is a criteria to be taken into consideration. Generally, the most expensive is the fastest, to be simple about it. :)
