I love technology. I love tinkering with My Precious (a G4 PowerBook — and the love of my life) and other little gadget friends (digital camera, iPod, etc.), yet VCRs mystify me* and I've never used any form of Instant Messenger.

*My skills with VCRs are limited to hitting the play, pause, stop, fast forward, rewind, eject, and power buttons. Maybe because I grew up without one around. In the unlikely and unforseen event that I see the need to purchase a VCR, I'll make sure to read the manual for that particular model. However, VCRs are fast becoming defunct, and that causes me no grief — I like DVD players (especially when they come built into computers) better anyhow.
