A Tiny Tiny Geek Moment
Posted on June 17, 2006 Posted by John Scalzi 5 Comments
I’m feeling mighty tech competent today: After a couple of weeks of screwy wi-fi and home network issues, I’ve managed to reconnect everything and make it work again. And all it took was many hours of trolling the Internet to learn how! Actually, if I had been tech competent, I probably would have figured out the problem in 20 minutes. But hush. Give me my small victories.
You go, John!
Little known secret of the “tech competent:” Knowing how to look up the answer to your problem is 90% of the battle.
Those little victories are the best! Last weekend, I wired up a light switch that I gave up on 6 months ago — and it worked on the 1st try! Sweetness.
Or you could have bought Network Magic.
But what the hell. You learned something.
In the immortal words of every tech writer known to geek-kind: RTFM.
