Okay, I’m not going to pretend to be a guru.
That being said, I have been doing PC support (both WIntel and Mac platforms) since 1988. I am conversant in most issues, including hardware, internals, OS issues, software (particularly Corel products and Microsoft Office), networking, printers and printing issues, and large-format plotters (such as HP’s DesignJet products) and the networking of same. I speak Cisco, and know my way around most wireless issues.
I will also feign a modest foundation in 3D modeling, animation (as any good filmmaker-wannabe worth his NaCl would tend to be), and rendering and render farms with their plethora pithy ‘ithues.’ Now; I said modest… meaning that I have probably made many of the same mistakes you have already made.
Got a question? Go ahead; ask away! Hey, we might both get lucky! 😛
