    For some reason folks got the idea I'm some sorta' computer genius however, somehow I want to respond to that first entry "What's a computer?"! I'm in between I'm learning how to build them now. Even with a phd (very recent) and being around them all my life I believe we'll always be playing catch-up. Gotta' keep enticing everyone with the new and improved mousetrap... and then there's some of us "hackers, crackers (who you callin' a cracka'?)... keepin' folks on their toes. One of my business partners is in his 50's Russian immigrant and has an unbelievable amount of experience in all aspects and knows it all equally well, created all these programs we all use or have used you name it he's done it (his résume is 5 pages long of what he knows and has created) keeps ya' humble ya' know?

    I think a lot more people know how to build pcs now, I built mine, with my bros help, and since ive passed on my skills to 2 mates. the hardware side of PCs really is a lot simpler than the software side. Although no expert im no noob, as a few people already said..

    I'd say that I'm pretty knowledgable with computers. I built the one I'm using now and I usually fix the computers around my house. I also set up a network in my house. Of course, programming is another different issue.

    If I can program, does that mean I am an expert?

    I don't think being a programmer automatically qualifies someone as an expert. I've helped several programmers who couldn't setup their wireless networks, couldn't upgrade the hardware on their computers and other little things like that. These were smart people, so they would've figured it out, I wouldn't consider them experts.

    I'm a programmer since 2nd year high, just freshman college but I'm currently reinventing the wheel on GUI and planning to make my my own kernel's for my planned OS... does that make me an expert?

    i know i'm not an expert, but since i work with a computer in the office and have to design software, i guess i know something about it.

    mind you i'm not a programmer nor a techie but in my line of work i have to understand somethings in order to design a good software applications

    I know quite a bit, but I definitely wouldn't say I'm an expert.

    I could do pretty much anything in MS Office....studied web design a couple of years ago but would probably need to brush up a lot on that....languages moving on and what have you :)
