I was raised being told I was smart. Really smart. Genius level smart. And this, by a man who was a genius. Turns out he was an evil genius but I don't feel like going into that. Uh... I can bum my way around a computer. I don't know most of the technical terms, but I know a few key shortcuts and I can use the internet and can usually figure out what my poor ancient laptop is trying to communicate to me (usually it's along the lines of "OHGODSTOPIDON'THAVETHATKINDOFRAM!") But apparently, to most people I speak to IRL, being able to torrent is on the level of hacking the bloody pentagon. WTFork? My husband gets called out to fix people's computers alot cause he doesn't actually charge for it- he gets tipped AWESOMELY but he doesn't charge. He's taught me quite a bit about computers, actually, I know more than most of his geek friends. But I see him run into the dumbest problems: It's taken this woman TWO YEARS to give up trying to change her desktop wallpaper. One dear sweet old woman I really adore who is VERY intelligent couldn't figure out she had to CLICK on EMAIL to open her email. Another couple didn't realize that when they entered a PASSWORD they had to re-enter that password to go back to that site. Should I go into computers? I was thinking of going into network security since everyone seems so paranoid about it. Even my darling father, who I love and who is a very smart guy didn't understand that if your computer wasn't hooked up to the internet (and never on anyway...) you couldn't get a virus on it. I always kind of figured that job market was flooded but around here... it seems like I could get away with it.
