Hello there technophobe, noob, tech enthusiast, fellow gamer or curious visitor and welcome to Computer Noob Guru!
The Love Affair
PC’s have been a passion of mine since I was a little nerdy girl of 7 years old and given my first desktop computer to keep me busy and out of my parents’ & much older siblings’ hair.
Of course games kept me glued to the keyboard and screen, but the love affair didn’t end there! Often the old-school rig would misbehave and no one would be able to fix it, so naturally I took it upon myself to get deep into the root of the problem and rectify the situation. After all, losing out on game-time was unacceptable!
When I discovered I could poke around with the insides, swap things out and around and this could make things faster, well I felt like a kid in a candy shop!
The fascination escalated to the point where I would sit and read the entire Microsoft “Help” file just for fun.
When interwebz and Google stumbled into my lap, my life was complete! The world at my fingertips – I mean, what more could anyone want? 😛
This passion carried through into adulthood and I have since been able to save many a soul in need of help with their misbehaving equipment. The machines seem to respond well to my “magic” touch, much to my delight!
I hope that by now you’ve come to a few conclusions… I’m slightly obsessed and a little crazy – but mainly that I LOVE computers.
On my journey through techy geekdom I discovered to my horror that there is so much fear, frustration and confusion to be eliminated. It can be overwhelming to beginners, but these smart machines are supposed to make life easier and fun!
I also noticed that there are some tech experts that are not very nice to or patient with newbies.
This brings me to the point (because everything needs a point, right?!) – I have decided to create a space for people who are new to this field, and all things related. Where you can come to learn about the inside and outside of computers, find out what you need to know without being made to feel like a dummy, where you can get help and advice without being overwhelmed.
If your time here converts you into a fearless enthusiast like me, what a bonus!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
Much techy nerdy love,
