OK, we know you're a geek from way back. You wouldn't be reading Baseline if you didn't have long experience working in technology.
Do you really want to risk having cluelessness become a standing joke below when you have to hand over your laptop so someone else can uninstall a glitch Windows patch or some problem crops up that's obviously due to an error in the registry, but you don't have time to track it down and fix it yourself?
Of course not. They'll make fun of you, anyway, but only because they're jealous of your obvious technical acumen, business savvy and wish they could dress in those elegant trousers and really sharp ties (snort).
