You know that person that always has the latest and greatest as far as tech geeks go? That person that hacks and mods every gadget he/she owns? The person that everyone comes to with computer/phone/game console questions? Well I am and I find it to have benefit and some minor drawbacks; 1. When ever someone is getting rid of something old like a laptop or a hard drive etc., I'm the first person they ask if i want it. 2. You're the first person they come to when there's a problem with their electronics. Don't get me wrong I don't mind helping but I'm a big believer in that "give a man a fish/teach a man to fish" saying I'd go a step further and say "teach your self to fish" and you can really have some fun with your electronics and troubleshoot when you have problems. Funny thing is I fix radios, satcom equipment, computers etc for a living and you'd be surprised how many people come to me for help with their stuff.
