Yeah I see these "Knows Everything" ads all the time.
Is that a cultural myth? That computer people know everything b/c it deals
with a "computer"? Or rather b/c they think a "computer" is one thing that

could possibly do with computers.
Sort of like the Professor of Gilligan's Island. He was Bio-Chemistry,
Physics, Astronomy, etc.
