Tech For Non-Tech

I support all the gadgets in our home, including the various computers.  I tinker - I admit it, but I always strive to ensure that all the tech we have is up to date and operating as efficiently as possible.

This morning Hamish saw me updating the software on Netty and gave me the third degree about what I was doing.  I can't always easily explain to him what the software is doing but I try to tell him that I know what and, more importantly, why I am doing what I'm doing.

This ultimately puts me on the defensive and causes friction.  However if I didn't maintain our tech and let entropy take it's course I would then be criticised when the various systems we have grind to a halt.

I can't really win this one.
