@OpenComputeDesign Computers of some form will always be around but with that said it is a great idea to work on other skills. I have done temporary work in many industries from electrician to plumber, carpenter and mechanic and more. Skills always come in handy especially when owning your own home. I am also a maker and love building the random weird object. Hints why I build my own 3D printer. So therefor there is some wisdom in your dad's advice
@omnipotens I know. I actually have a fair amount of plumbing, mechanicing, construction, carpentry, digging/trenching/excavation, concrete pouring, light to moderate equipment/ electrical wiring, etc, experience. As well as a good understanding of simple, to fairly complex machines going back centuries. I just got a bit frustrated by all his negative talk about computers.
@OpenComputeDesign Human nature he lives in his world and does not grasp the other. Me as a dad wanted my son to go into computers however he decided to go military then want go go into police.
