Computer Class

THING 53 - Computer Class at the Greenwich Library

I'm guessing that if you are reading my blog you know the basics of working a computer, though if you need some more help swing by the Greenwich Library on Thursdays between 3 and 4pm.  This is when the Greenwich Library hosts a drop-in class for people that need help with any general computer problems ranging from searching through the internet to problems with Microsoft Word.  My heart goes out to anyone that helps people with computer issues.  I don't have the tolerance for working through my computer issues, let alone someone else's.

    As a computer repair person (I'm a high schooler), I don't mind helping people with their computers. Even if I don't charge them (e.g. Friends, family, a girlfriend or boyfriend etc.), I actually like helping.What I can't stand are these two kinds of people: 1) Those who do no research AT ALL before calling me. 2) Those who think I am a wizard because I use LinuxAnd I've figured out a good tip for computer repair people: Figure out the price before you do the job. Don't charge by the hour. There are two reasons for this: 1) It deters people from breathing down your neck about "getting it done fast" 2) It protects the cost from your ignorance. For instance, I am more of a Linux and Mac guy, if you ask me to fix a Windows problem, I can probably fix it, but it will probably take me longer than f I'm fixing a problem with Linux. That's because of my own ignorance, and I'm not going to punish (correct wording?) the employeer because of it.
