Computer Geekery

I'm surprised I did this well on that quiz because I really don't know squat about computers. I wish I did - thence the accurate description, I guess. I totally like knowing computer people and have an ex-husband and friends who are. Also, my son and daughter-in-law are self-professed geeks. I accidentally learned some of the information on the questions when I was first married and my husband was in computer school in the US Navy Submarine Service (I still have my dolphins, a pin for family members like the ones the sailors earn). The curriculum was designed by Admiral Rickover and was grueling. I was around when he and his friends studied Boolean Algebra (logic) and the other computer technology stuff. He was an FT (fire-control technician) which means he maintained the computers that guided the Polaris missiles on nuclear submarines.

My computer geek score is greater than 35% of all people in the world! How do you compare? Click here to find out!

Overall, you scored as follows:

64% scored higher (more computer geeky),
1% scored the same, and
35% scored lower (less geeky).

Compared to those in the same age group as you:

74% scored higher (more computer geeky),
1% scored the same, and
25% scored lower (less geeky).

What does this mean? Your computer geekiness is:

You are a wannabe computer user, but, alas, that is not possible with you.

Anyway, I did cheat on a few of the questions but answered the others the best I could. I wouldn't have known some if my son hadn't played video games and if I hadn't had help from my mentor Scaryduck when I wanted to make changes on my blog. I've asked questions to my cyber friends and former students and really do spend too much time on the computer, but I don't have to tell any of you that! LOL I like gadgets but don't really know how they work.

**OK, I took it again without cheating even though I did remember those answers I googled about those men and the inventor of Pong. Hey! There was a question on there that asked if we googled, so they must expect a certain amount of that.

Have a great weekend and let me know how you do.
