Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
-What do you do?
-I work on websites
-I do online business
-I work on a computer
-OHHHHH, now we are talkin. So how is it with computer work, I have heard (insert extemely over-simplified view [i.e. it's bad or it's good])
-Well actually, it is like any job; it has its ups and downs.
It doesn't bother me that people call me a computer nerd, I have accepted the steriotype.
My daughter who programs as naturally as she breathes thinks that I am passe (assume accent aigu).
I would love to be called a nerdy geek instead of a passe wuss. Want to trade titles?
the worse part is when I mention computer, they think I'm technician and ask if I can fix there problems
Learned my response from a physician years ago:
I smile and say: "Certainly. Be pleased to help. I charge $500CAD callout paid up front plus $120CAD per hour plus all expenses. When is a convenient time?"
The silence is deafening. And sad to say, no one has actually taken me up on it :-(
