I've asked about getting a separate forum dedicated to topics of technology (programming, computers, telecommunications). But thus far it has been to no avail.

I wouldn't call myself a guru with technology but I am the one people go to for help fixing/building computers and other smaller devices among my family and people who know my family. I also help people online through remote connections but that is about the extent of it at this time.

I wouldn't exactly consider myself a tech guru even though I can put a PC together. The knowledge base for tech is vast, ever expanding, and infinite.

Anything regarding personal computers and networks yes, people call me one, But I definitely don't think I am as good as they say I am. I just know the basics and they don't.

I know how to build,fix and replace computer parts, know most electronic specs like iPhone,iPad, S3, knows how to host servers, overclock and a tiny bit of game coding for IOS and andriod. Still wouldn't call myself a guru because they are people who are better than me.

I find technology interesting but I am not interested in screwing around with it. Too many numbers and figures.

As a hobby. I used to do IT work and Network administration as a career and got sick of it.

Depends on the definition of tech guru.

I program computers, I've put together and fixed computers at a hardware and software level, and have installed and used numerous operating systems. I've used computers and many other electronics devices for most of my life, to the extent that I am confident I would be able to figure out how to use most that I might come across just with playing around with them.

Nonetheless, like others have said - there's always somebody that's more knowledgeable.
I personally wouldn't describe myself as a guru of tech or anything else, but I suppose I might seem like one to people with relatively little experience.

I remember when I was in high school, I saw that we had an old computer sitting in the back of the room and put it together (just connected the peripherals). I turned it on, and it was running DOS. While browsing through the directories to see what software was on it (a surprising number of classic games, and I'm not talking Math Blaster here... Scorched Earth and Out of This World come to mind), some other students saw what I was doing and commented that I was hacking.

Probably they'd never seen a command line driven OS before. To them, what I was doing may have seemed impressive, but it would've been normal for any DOS user.

Gah I wish we can I'll see what the other mods think... But, there are a lot of users that want us to actually get rid of some sections since there are so many inactive sections...

But, going back on the subject I don't consider myself an expert but I did get my undergrad in Computer Science and Biology... but there is a lot of things out there that I barely can grasp >.<!

*Looks at previous posts* Where'd the rest of the women go? lol I'm not too surprised though, given how few I work with or have taken classes with. *sigh

I might consider myself a "guru" in some areas, but technology changes so rapidly it takes a lot of effort to keep up with it. I still feel like a novice when it comes to a lot of things, even if I've been doing them for the past 10+ years. I have had a degree in programming for 5+ years, but I'm now on leave from my job so I can go back to school. My goal is to complete graduate studies in Computational Biology. It'll be quite a change from the Oracle reporting/admin and telecom work I've been doing.
