I’m one of the weird IT guys who aren’t gamers. I have an NES connected to my Samsung LCD and frustrated that the NES gun doesn’t work with LCD TVs. I’m a relativiely new technician only working in the field for about 5 years. I was having a nice conversation about electronics with a friends father when he said to me “It seems like you like computer and electronics. Why dont you work in IT??” That moment was probably the most single handed, “slap yourself in the forhead” moment in my whole life. And now here I am. Most of my life I’ve worked some sort of customer service which has helped me excel at this field. I go to work and work on anything computer related, networking included. Then I go home and do the same thing. I love this stuff.
