Thankfully I'm only a 21%. I know quite a bit about computers, but just not what they asked.

Since I am far from a computer-maven, I think the fact that I have been using computers and been online since the early '80s helped a lot...and my memory for terms and trivia.

Yes, the good old days! Kids in college now don't even study COBOL or FORTRAN. When I was in college we wrote our own little operating system. It only had to do 4 things -- open a file, save a file, read a record..oh, I forget. It was fun, though.

My husband took some of the servers back to work and someone else gets to take them home. I looked on the shelf and there are still 3 down there, though. I want that nice shelf for a tank! To answer krap101's question, these are dedicated servers for my husband's work. If the power goes out, I go downstairs and fix them since I work at home, but otherwise I don't touch them. I don't use them to get to this site, for example.

We just got another "toy" -- a Cisco VOIP phone!

I was considering VOIP, but if your power and/or ISP is out...no phone.

Yes, that is true! We still have our regular phone and that's why the VOIP is still a "toy" at this point!
