Salute Screen Savers On National Techies Day (Oct. 3)

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today (Oct. 3) is a day to honor the nerd that saves your screen and your sanity.

That’s because it’s National Techies Day, a day to give the computer technician in your life thanks for their super geeky skills that keep your PC from going caput.

Scott Smeltzer, who owns the San Diego-based company, On-Site Tech Support, says techies should be honored because they’re also psychologists.

He explains, “I’ve gotten a few meltdowns when people’s computers crash. I just have to calm them down quickly and tell them it’s gonna be okay, and to go have a cup of tea, and that I’m going to fix everything.”

Smeltzer says all it takes to show a techie that you care is a “nice appreciatory thanks,” even though he laments, “No one has ever given me flowers.”

Though Smeltzer says he’ll be working on National Techies Day, he says many techies will most likely celebrate by keeping their laptops off all day.
