Which is something that kind of brings me to the topic of this post. I currently work in tech support for an ISP and so I spend my time together with a bunch of other geeks trying my very best to answer questions from regular people. What strikes me as a bit odd is that people set up these fancy network solutions at home but they still have no idea how to configure their router ... and I mean none at all. This is however something that makes me wonder why I myself doesn't have some fancy network solutions at home.
I do have a 100/10 Mbps connection so I could very well run a web server at home, after all I know how to configure it and set it up. I could also have a NAS running to provide me access to what ever I might want when I'm out running around. After all I have an Android phone fully capable of utilizing such a thing.
I recently came to the conclusion that I might very well be a class A geek but at the same time my other interests prohibit me from spending the time and money it would take to set all these things up for the odd chance that I might wonder around and feel a terrible need to update my music library on my phone without using Spotify ... which probably would never happen anyway. Of course I could rip my DVDs and stick them on a NAS so I could stream them to my phone but then again I could just bring the ones I want with me when I go on holiday. Or I could even just experience the place and the people were I go.
So the bottom line is that while I feel terribly behind when I talk to people about these things daily I at the same time don't feel a bit behind on those points but rather extremely behind in taking the next step towards the next new experience in my own life.
