Default Make me a techie !

Doing a computer networks degree atm but I really don't think I know enough about computers. Ive applied to work in some computing shops locally to help me learn more.

I need to know more and more about computers etc. I look through this forum, and I don't understand alot of it.

How did you all become good techies ?

Reading, asking, and doing. At least, that's how I did it.

Welcome aboard, iJuelz. Don't worry a lot about it... just being involved will let it start to rub off on you. Ask about anything you don't understand and we'll fill you in.
