    By the way, I am constantly kidded by my family that I'm usually too busy "modding something" when someone feels I have neglected some other duty. Yeah, they all love it though when I come to the rescue either fixing one of their computers,installing some game mid for them, or fixing their car, etc....
    I love technology, I hate shopping (unless its online), I love email, I hate cooking, gossiping, I know other women like this as well. We don't flaunt it cause our fellow females think we are weird. My teenage sons (3) think its cool. Their friends do too.
    Thats how my family is, especially my older brother, can barely sync his ipod without me giving him directions

    My husband loves to use his technology but he cant "fix" anything., If the tv remote gets out of sync with the fios box and home theater he will call for me. I joke him that he'll have a house full of bricks if anything ever happened to me.

    The best lesson I told my 18 year old when he first got his iPhone and was having some issue. I told him not to be a noob and that Google was his best friend. He should know better since he actually sells computers as his part time job!

    LOL! I am just a 48 year old suburban stay at home mom with very unusual hobbies (modding cell phones, fixing and upgrading teh plethora of pc's and laptops we have, fixing stuff on cars, instructing high performance driving with a car club, drivingand maintaining a highly modified race prepped car, My 3 sons are crazy for tech as well as my husband, they just arent as "knowledgable". They are learning. I figure I'd hae to work a full time boring desk job to earn enough money to pay other peole to do what I can learn how to do and do myself. Things get done the way I want, i dont have to rely on someone else's schedule or standards. Its amazing what you can learn online. Auto painting, seat reupholstering, last month I had the entire dash apart on one of our cars and fixed the a/c that was blowing only hot air (temperature regulator flap motor went bad). I go nuts if Ihave to spend too much time with most of my "peers". they are so shallow and BORING.

    Guess i inherited these traits from my dad who was an early adopter of tech as well. Sadly he passed away in 1984, but I remember he had one of the first TI programmable calculators (the ones with the little magnetic cards) and he got his whole department at work on Commodores before IBM or Apple were everyday names. I grew up using tools and always being independent. My dad always used to tell me that when he interviewed candidates for a position in his department (he was an Industrial Engineer) he said he didnt care whether they knew the answer, what he wanted to hear was"I don;t know, but I know how to find out!" Guess that stuck with me. My kids are the same too.

    I dont mind people not knowing things. Hey we all dont know what we dont know. But when the answers are right there in front of you and people dont see them or apply concepts.... Well I wont preach to the choir here.

    Well, I know the one thing any of my kids hates is to be considered a "noob". So if I tell one of them that they get the message better than if it was some tight-***** neurotic parent telling them they "should" do something. They also reserve the right to call me on something they see as dumb. i have quite often been asked if I'm "retarded". Sometimes they are right and other times they aren't. Either way I will either own up to my faux-pas, or tell them they are off target and why.

    In a family of "hypocrisy detectors", we are forced to be genuine with each other. The reward is having kids that actually RESPECT us for being truthful and honest and return the same honesty to us.

    Needless to say we have a very unconventional family that laughs a lot but the kids do the right thing most of the time because it is the right thing, not becuse someone told them to do it.

    Thats awesome! What was his reaction? I love the fact that the distance between kids and adults being so involved in everyday technology has lessened.

    In a sence, he got pwned by mom

    He actually shrugged and went upstairs and googled and not 5 min. later he yells down. "I got it!". he ws LAZY! The best part is that with multiple kids, they play off each other. The others then have to show up the one who got 'schooled".

    Becasue I LIKE playint with this stuff i used to spend way too much time helping them get all kinds of wacky things working. Two of them are really into that Steam game "Garrys Mod". Downloading the mods and extracting them into the proper folders and getting them to work on some of the early versions of the game was challenging. I no longer get asked for help. Well except for when the oldest got that wallpaper changing trojan or whatever pos malware it was on his brand new laptop for college. He got nervous when he read that people were reformatting their HD's and reinstalling the OS. Ran a few utility programs and we got it cleaned up. he got a good lesson in advanced malware removal.
    The greates compliment i have ever received was having my teenage boys call me "cool" to their friends. They brinf their friends to me for all kinds of stuff. I fixed a kids dead power supply once. Another came over to drool over our race car and watch in-car videos.
