How tech-savvy are you? Do people ever ask you for help with tech related things?
For me, I know a lot more about computers and stuff than a lot of people, but as for wiring and stuff, I have no clue.
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I'm the person that's asking others for help with technology. x) Luckily one of my best friends knows a lot about that sort of stuff, so I just go to him whenever I'm having problems.

Yup,i'm rather lettered when it comes to technology.
I must admit though,wiring is not my metier.

Usually, when the internet is broken, my mom calls me to fix it. I don't really really fix it, I just do the only logical thing you would do to a modem -- I turn it off, then turn it on again. It works fine after that, and my mom thinks I'm a computer technician. But besides that, I'm not really good with the wires and stuff.

I have no clue when my step-dad asks me what's young with his computer I tell him to ask his daughter who is a wiz when it comes to computers.

Normally I have to ask when something goes wrong with my PC.

Since I work as a IT Technician, I can safely say I am 'tech-savvy'. I have very good understanding of building and fixing computers, printers, AV Setups, Wiring so on so on. :3

I don't think I'm all that tech-savvy but being an IT consultant it's only natural that I get asked to try and find solutions to technology based problems.

When I'm at work, where I'm pretty much the only person young enough to have grown up around computers, I feel like a technological superstar because I can attach documents to emails.

At home, with my roommate who studied computer science and works with computers all day, I feel like a 3-year old holding up a piece of paper with some macaroni glued to it.

I somewhat know my way around technology (like where certain plugs go on a computer); my Psychology teacher in high school had to ask me to help with a few technical difficulties.

As I tell people, I know enough about computers and other things to not make them explode on me.

Though to be fair, I also know enough to be able to hook (some) things up on my own, install things, what have you. It's just when people start getting to the more technical things that I tend to not be able to follow.

So, um. I'm not someone to come to for tech help (I believe my answers are always "I don't know"), but I know how to keep stuff mostly running once they're up and assuming they don't suddenly die? :D

My god, I'm terrible with computers. I think if I was taught coding, I could do it, but disassembling them...no way.

At least I think I could do coding. :(

I just ask my dad whenever I have problems with my computer since he's worked at IBM for years now as a IT Architect. . Or if he's not available then I ask Stand Alone haha. I know a few things but not very much when it comes to computers and such.

I'm usually pretty good with technology. If I don't know the answer, I usually know enough to figure out how to find the answer. As for the inners of anything, I can usually take a look and figure out how things work and fit together, but for anything past assembling a computer, I doubt I'd trust myself to fix anything. I also don't actually know HOW to properly deal with bare wires or electricity so I'd rather leave that to the experts. Wouldn't stop me from taking things apart and looking around but better safe than sorry.

Generally I'm tech support for anyone I know, though, which can be a little frustrating. :/

I'm the (somewhat extended) family's tech support. I fix stuff, order stuff, and give advice when requested.

I don't really... know any of the physical stuff. Building, anyway. Connecting, though. Like cabling. I can do.

I've also fixed many a "bad HDTV" that was hooked up with composite cables :\

People seem to think that since I spend a lot of time on my computer, I know a whole ton about computers. This is categorically untrue and I manage to disappoint them every time they try to get me to help them with something. I don't bother learning about the inner workings of anything, I just send whatever it is away for repairs whenever it's broken. Life is just easier that way

I'm the family's go to person regarding most things electronic. My parents recently bought themselves a new laptop and printer, and I had to help out with everything from initial setup to connecting the cables to the printer. And I'm the one who gets called up if a computer gets infected by a virus or my mother forgets how to access her email account xD

Cell phones are an exception; I am clueless when it comes to them.

I'm a little bit half-tech savvy since I know how to fix some technological problems but not know how to fix others.

My parents ask me for help with tech related stuff, they think I'm some sort of technology genius. Funny thing is I just google what to do.

I'm decent with technology. Typically I can figure out what I'm doing by poking around menus or Googling. If I don't know what's going on, I don't touch it.

Sadly, I'm the most tech-savvy person at work. I feel bad because in the grand scheme of things, I'm not that great. :( But then again, it's a pizza place -- we're not doing anything too hardcore with the computers.

I've never blown myself up, and I typically can figure out messes of wires and how things work. I enjoy it, and I'm decently good at it. I'm not the expert on what exactly things are, but I can figure them out.

Now if I could only root my Android... which is getting to the point of being too advanced for me due to how complicated this situation is getting, lol.
This'll do for now.

Hm I'm not that tech savvy even though I'm taking computer science right now, mostly cause I don't read about stuff randomly. I'll learn something once I need to use it XD; as for physical components of the computer though, I'm extremely bad with any tactile, physical stuff =/ I never tried putting a computer together but I'm just scared I order the wrong parts, or break things lol.
