If you had to place yourself somewhere on a scale from 1 to 10; 1 being "I can barely send an email" to 10 defining you as a "whiz-bang 'puter dude/dudette," where would you be?
We got our first computer more than 15 years ago. We now also have a laptop, we're wireless and we just bought a Blu Ray.
Until Saturday night I really didn't know what the hell a Blu Ray was. I'm hoping I'll know more after looking at the CD but I have a hunch that I'll need to call in my geek pal, Jeremy.
I'm running as fast as I can trying to keep up but I'm horribly behind.
My "behindness" (I know, that's not a real word but it fits) is glaringly apparent when it comes to phones. I've been using a Tracfone for many years but I hardly ever turn it on. My sister keeps telling me to get on the iphone train but I just don't think my life needs that kind of high tech communication.
I remember being on a job probably two years ago and a Wii was mentioned. I was absolutely clueless. I know I fingerspelled w-e-e. It was embarrassing. I now know what a Wii is and even lost a game or two to my young grand niece.
The reason I'm blogging about this issue is we bought a new TV when we got that Blu Ray thingamajig. We set it up that night and then had to get the cable box. Naturally, hooking that system up took a while along with 4 phone calls to various geeky people but we did it. It only took 2 days! Yea, us!
So now I suppose you want to know where I'd place myself on that 1 - 10 scale, eh? I'm being generous here - 5.5
