Are you known as a geek? I get probably 10-15 emails/IMs/real life questions a week from people I barely know because someone said, "Go ask KOW, he knows computers and junk" I don't really mind, unless it is someone who has repeatedly been mean to me for being a geek. I actually kind of enjoy being a geek, people listen to you, and you can scare people by making up the symptoms of a new virus that can infect a person through the keyboard or something. Good times. The money isn't bad either, 40$ to set up an MP3 player, 50$ for an hour and a half of 'fixing' (IE installing ad-aware and Spybot then playing at www.javagameplay.com) The best part is, I never actually mention a price, people are just willing to pay because they don't think they could do it on their own. So, anybody else here a geek. . .so much so you get referred to by people you don't even know to people you have even less connection with?
