Ha! I get the "good with computers" label. That also comes with the idea that I can do anything computer related, so at work every once in a while I'll get "Oh, you don't know how to do that? I thought you were good with computers. Sorry."
Also, I love your "I am intently working" face in the first panel.
I absolutely love the older guy's face in the last panel (left side) - such INTENSITY.
I think I've met him. Under about a dozen different names.
Oh you think that's bad? Try being the intelligent moron that raises his hand in a combat unit when they ask "who's good with computers?"
AND END UP SPENDING THREE YEARS TRAPPED IN POWERPOINT!
And now you have learned the hard way never to raise your hand more than required in the Army. (Thankfully I learned that one through observation of poor suckers like you >.>)
Well I'm in Intel now. The tools I get to play with are much more interesting. :3
I'm not considered "good with computers" amongst my peers, but my family is a different story. My dad and I know computers, in that we can use them competently. My mom and my little sister do not. My little sister (14) just recently learned how to attach a Word document to an email... My dad and I get very frustrated with the questions they ask sometimes.
in my high school i was so good with computers that i was labled the computer-wiz of whatever class i was in. not as good as you would think. I feel strange not telling the person next to me how to use a program better than just click and type.
long story short i got games to run from my flashdrive on the school computers and decided to be a solitary troll once again. (not so short)
In Computer Math in High School we were working with Java. A few other students and I banded together after our instructor told us we could play any game we could write in java... and rewrote Doom in Java, complete with campaign co-op.
Wow, you guys must have had much better computers than the ones I had to work with in my Java programming class. That, or you did some serious optimization. Java is, shall we say, not an efficient language. Heck, we had a second or more of lag on any swing program, just from loading up the library for it. Made grade 12 programming nice, though. Full period compiling cycles meant for lots of days firing up pingus and the other Linux games I had available that year (A computer that had originally been one of the servers but since became redundant was sitting in the corner with Linux - I'd gotten license to use it from the networking class I'd taken in first term, in which we sent every computer on the network creepy messages...sadly didn't last long because we'd forgotten to exclude the room we were in, and the teacher we were working under.)
Heh...The Engineering students in my high school just started installing Halo onto other kids' laptops in my high school (the laptops are school-issued, so there are some adminitrative...."eyes and controls"...). Too bad mine's stolen atm, otherwise, I'd probably be playing some online multiplayer right this second.
My dad asks me how to turn on the family computer and my mom asks me how to turn on the tv... I'm quite sure they'll go under once I move...
Nah, they'll just phone to ask. If they don't know already, they will learn to use a phone.

Thats probably true >.<
it IS true.. i get 3 calls a week with "INTERNET NOT WORKING!!!1' cry :\
also - they seem to always spot the perfect time-not-to-call to call you
Be glad they didn't have a grasp of the internet back when Time magazine listed 4chan as one of the top ten most influential entities on the web. That was an enormous disaster. I was running damage control around my family for a week.
"Good with social media" is the new "good with computers" - I just tweeted that.
"Good with social media" is the new "good with computers"... a label that I've been trying (and failing) to avoid...
