Chapter 3. Where to Get Help > Friends, Relations, and Gurus

Friends, Relations, and Gurus

You know who I'm talking about. That person down the hall who seems to know everything there is to know about computing. Your niece, your dad, your brother-in-law. Whoever it is, they're your best resource for helping you solve that little problem that has you stuck. Most people are really glad to help. They're honored—flattered even—to be asked to show off their knowledge, even if their level of accomplishment is only a month or two beyond your own. One note of caution: Some people can be a bit arrogant about computers, especially which brand to buy. I'm not saying that you shouldn't listen to their advice, but realize that there are people who, for reasons I don't totally understand, get all emotional about PCs. This is especially true if you start talking about PCs versus Macs. For some, the choice of a computer becomes almost a religious issue.
