  You're not a dummy.
You're not an idiot.
All you need is a little advice from the Neighborhood Nerd.

We all feel dumb sometimes--especially when we deal with computers. But the first step to mastering computers is to stop blaming ourselves when things go wrong, accept the fact that computers aren't perfect, and learn just enough of the basics so we can co-exist with them.

The Neighborhood Nerd is here to explain things to you clearly and simply. Here's our current lineup:
