Default Re: The joys of being the only computer literate person in your house

I'm the do-it-all in this family. It's been that way since I was a kid. I've always liked taking things apart to see what made them work, then putting it all back together. We have 4 computers in this house. All have been built and maintained by me. My oldest son can pretty much figure out problems with his, and he also helps his friends with their problems.

Not a very nice thing to do.

A very childish, spoilt little brat type of thing to do really.
