It is not all about having the appropriate tools. I have fast knowledge on using digital things, and I benefit from the experience and deliberate decisions that went into the setup of my devices, but I feel like a failure whenever I stop seeing an immediate purpose for my technical tinkering. Even when I am directly fixing other people's problems with my know-how, I have reservations. Neither do I want to commit to keeping up with systems subject to arbitrary change, nor do I want to take even a single step towards a life of computer work. I might almost reject digital technology outright, just to avoid the slippery slope leading down from a focus on content toward working with media.

Still, I will continue to share those technology-related tips where ignorance leads to frustration or wasted time. My primary goal in this is to return tools to the function that their name suggests — being of use and service.
