So... basically, I'm a geek. You might have guessed that. However, do not confuse the word "geek" with "nerd," "dork," or any form of sci-fi obsession. I've been working with computers since 5th grade when my parents fulfilled the promise they made to me in Kindergarten and bought a computer. Right from the start I was thinking of ways to do things that were easier to do on a computer than otherwise. I've sort of embraced new technology all along, and to date, I'm the biggest "gear-head" I know. I can hook up just about anything to just about anything. I usually spend countless hours online looking at new stuff that's coming out or interfaces to go from "point A" to "point B." My Grandma bought me a little transistor radio at a garage sale when I was like 10 for 50 cents. I took it apart and screwed around with how the speaker, antenna and dials connected. Shortly thereafter, my Dad got me started on home audio stuff and how to hook up components with line-in and line-out stuff. Pretty much, since then it's sort of a hobby of mine to take stuff apart and figure out how to hook it up and whatnot.
