    I, too, know virtually nothing about hardware. With so many of my friends knowing hardware, adminsitration and software development, I was beginning to feel I was behind the curve in many respects. Glad to hear that others that I respect are the same way (though you probably know more about administration than I do).

    People who don't work with computers are often not aware that there's often quite a lot of specialization within the field. In my recent exploration of the joys of unemployment, the Oregon Unemployment Office tried to talk me into applying for a job administering Solaris boxes for just over half of my previous salary. Benefits could be cut off if I wouldn't apply for the job, but since they figured that "Solaris" == "computer", they assumed I knew it. Fortunately, I talked them out of that.
