How would you describe your computer expertise and knowledge-rudimentary, intermediate, advanced,
I bought my first Tandy computer way back in whatever year they came out in. I took one course in programing (Basic), and I wish today that I had taken them all. But I have had data base training that was very advanced and niche specific.
So, in some ways, my computer expertise is advanced and in other ways it is still rudimentary. If I average it out, that puts me squarely in the intermediate camp, right?
When it comes to my technological abilities regarding most things I would tend to say my level is rudimentary. Naturally a "beginner' may disagree with my assessment. However when I compare myself to those who can hack into systems or practically make a computer sing and dance I'm no where close to them!
I've never been one to spend a lot of time with gadgets and software trying to figure out how to utilize every potential benefit/feature it has.
I'm happy to have a cell phone that doesn't drop calls and is clearly audible on both ends. I don't care about flashlights, texting, accessing email, taking "selfies", paying bills with it or having game apps.
As long as I have Internet access and MS Office on my PC I'm fine.
I would wager to say I use about as much of my computer's capability as I do my brain. Approximately 10% according to experts!
Me too, I'm rudimentary as far as expertise goes.I'm learning along the way. If I have problems,I go to tech support who teaches me how to become more computer savvy.I INTEND to become more savvy so I won't need tech support.This dinsaur(me) WILL....
gmwilliams; Dinosaur? LOL!
I think one of problems is I find a lot of it to be on the (boring) side. I'd rather discus rhythm of music as opposed to algorithms. Tech support is my friend too!
It depends on what part of using a computer we're discussing. I would consider myself a little more advanced using some software and designing websites, intermediate for troubleshooting computer problems, and rudimentary (if not less) for actual programming and for complex computer problems.
Not to brag but I am in the "Expert/Guru" range. Besides working on computers since dirt was invented (i.e. a long time), I am equally comfortable in the Unix world, Linux world, Mac world and Windows world. True Story: I have a copy of Windows 1.0 on my shelf! There is one downside to being an expert...You are the expert! Everyone (your boss, your friends, your family) comes to you with their issues. I try to be polite and try to help them but I often look at the person & think to myself..."Could you come over and wash my windows or fix my car?"
I once had a VP ask me to find him the hacked version of "Need for Speed".
