Who Is the Techie in Your House?

Are you the "go-to" person in your house for programming DVRs or recovering deleted files? Or maybe your younger sibling is the tech savvy guru of the house? When I was living with my parents, my sisters and I always argued about who was the "geek" of the house. In the end, they always relied on me, the youngest, to deal with their computer issues—good times! Now I want to know who you consider to be the "techie" of your house. Let me know below! By the way, how adorable is the pic below?! Laptop work sessions in bed are the best! Source

my boyfriend is, but not by much and not always. It really depends on what needs to be fixed.

When my hubby isn't around, moi. But if he's around, he's the Primary Geek. Luckily for me, he loves to teach.

my boyfriend used to be really bad - i would actually have to fight the computer for attention. at one point, he had 3 or 4 that he would play with, take apart, run all these never-even-heard of it operating systems, that sorta thing. now, he codes for a living and doesn't want to even look at the computer when he comes home...it's kinda nice!

Both my husband and I are techies. I love the gadgets and he loves the the computer hardware and software. What's better than geeks in love??

I'm the techie, but we're both big, happy nerds and wouldn't have it any other way.

My boyfriend, but I know enough to hold my own and to fix most of my family's computer problems.

My husband and I are put to shame by our roommate. He has a HD projector that displays his computer screen, video games, or whatver he wants onto his wall... a whopping 75+ inch screen. Ridiculous!

My husband definitely is. He builds computers as a hobby. I leave all the techie stuff to him. I can hold my own, but he's got me beaten hands down.

Me. Poor Jackson didn't even know how to use a computer when I got hold of him.

It's sort of a toss up- my BF knows all the html and web designing lingo, but I know more about Macs than he does. So we share the responsibility :)

Everybody always asks me for help. Yet they never remember what I showed them, so I have to show them again and again.

Usually, I've always been the most geeky or tech minded anywhere I've lived before. But my new roommate and old friend Jake and I rival each others dorkiness all the time. His computer fried so he had to send it to the shop, usually we would play World of Warcraft together, we're in the same guild. But since he comes home first he hogs my computer until late at night when I need to get some damn sleep. So, to retaliate, I got myself a Nintendo DS, of which he is incredibly jealous. We're both very busy, social people. But when we're both at home, at least one of us is playing some sort of game. We also have 4 console systems in our apartment, we often invite a couple of our friends over to have Wii parties. So, to sum it up, both my roommate and I are total geeks! -JR

i'd say my boyfriend.... although i am very good at using/fixing computers, the fact that he has his degree in Computer Science and works for a computer company probably trumps my knowledge.
