Coming home to fix technology this Thanksgiving

There’s a fun article on [MSNBC – The Tech-Support Generation]: that talks about young Americans going home for Thanksgiving, and to fix their parents’ computers.

I think my family is reasonably adept at handling their own technological issues though. I usually end up fixing stuff anyway, but they’re pretty capable of handling it on their own. I’ve trained them well. 🙂

Honestly, I can’t say I blame them for asking me, when they do. I’m a little over-educated when it comes to computing and technology, even compared to other PhD students, so I’m really *supposed* to know the answer. Sometimes I don’t though. There’s too much. And a student’s budget doesn’t leave that much room to buy and play with the all the latest technogadgetry.

I can’t wait to come home. 🙂
