What tech are you knowledgeable about?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know we all have this info in our profiles but I want to have a discussion about it. A lot of people don’t ever go look at anyone’s profile.

 

So. What tech topics are you knowledgeable about?

 

My list...

 

AVL Systems (professional PA, live mixers (analog and digital), production screens, stage lighting)

 

Computer hardware (and areas like cooling, cable management, hardware quality control, etc.)

 

Windows and MacOS

 

Digital AV connections

 

Analog AV connections

 

AV signal conversion and adapting

 

Video game hardware (all platforms 3rd gen - current) - and games

 

Retro console modification (mostly Nintendo, some Sega and PS1/2)

 

HD/UHD TVs

 

CRT TVs & PVM monitors 

 

DACs and ADCs

 

Home surround sound 

 

********

 

Thats all that comes to mind for me but I’m sure I’ll think of others later. I’ve been into tech my whole life. I do it all day pretty much every day. It’s fun to get paid to play with expensive toys, no?

Define knowledgeable?  I know a little bit about most things, somethings I know nothing about or very little about and I am professional (accomplished with education or experience) at others.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Your question is a little vague. I have Master in Internet of Things. Anything 'Digital' related is right up my alley.

 

As my personal hobby, I've been studying custom PC building for over 8 years, so I know a thing or two about custom PC building.

I'd concider myself decent at computer hardware in general along with overclocking I guess? Idk it's really hard to put down what you are good, like I know you shouldn't get a VS PSU for your €2000 computer, but I can't tell you WHY it's explosive garbage


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Its called planned obsolescence. They add extra Chinesium to the cheap ones to make you pay again for a better one. Its also called Goldilocks sales. the cheap PSUs are the bowl that is too cold.

Some might say I am the VHS enthusiast here. Some might also say I'm a dumbass, but people say a lotta things.

I need more exposure and experience

Knowledgeable as in you’re reasonably confident working on the stuff with little to

no help from other people or the Internet.

Very nice. I started when I was just a kid (literally less than a teenager) so I’ve been around for a while in that arena as well. (About 15 years now)

 

I fell in love with tech at an early age and it’s just been my biggest hobby ever since. 

 

I like to game but I find that I tinker more with the hardware than actually playing games.

I have 4 professions, two educationally trained and 2 on the job.  I also work like a professional in 3 other fields but have no formal qualifications nor enough time to call myself a professional.

If we define technology by it's dictionary definition

Quote

machinery and equipment developed from the application of scientific knowledge.

Then I get:

  • Hydraulics
  • Drivetrains
  • Sailboats
  • Some programming
  • Space craft
  • Clocks
  • Sewing machines

Those are things that I have higher than average knowledge in, but not necessarily a professional or expert level of knowledge.


Teacher: Does anyone have a thin ruler?

Students: No.

Teacher: Ok. Does anyone have a nail file.

Students: Why do you need a nail file?
Teacher: I have a staple I need to remove.

Student: Oh. I have a staple remover...

I'm knowledgeable with CPUs and motherboards, and I'm somewhat knowledgeable on PSUs (somewhat knowledgeable = I know enough to give recommendations and explanations on why certain PSUs are good/garbage, but I don't really know much more than that). 


Take what I say with a grain of salt, some things may not be correct.

If you're replying to me, make sure to quote me or mention me (@XR6), otherwise I won't see your reply.

PC's I'm somewhat knowledgeable in - but I think I have become rather decent at Googling stuff which makes filling in the gaps in knowledge easier.

 

I know a decent bit about digital art programs and digital art peripherals (e.g. drawing tablets, screens, etc.).

Otherwise I do think I know quite a lot about the different gaming controllers out there - specifically how to take apart and clean alot of them.

Same with taking about gaming devices - mostly Nintendo handhelds - I have become adapt with that at this point too. Modding is something I want to know more about though.

 

I'm decent at knowing some emulation stuff - although to some people my knowledge is only 'surface level' info.
