A theater techie is completely different being then a computer geek or hacker or whatever word you wish to use to describe knowing the inner working of computers and the net far better then anyone else. I love the smell of the theater; the musty, dust from the curtains, the faint metallic taste from the lighting intruments above, and the smell of greasepaint mixed with sweat. I imagine that most theater techies feel the way I do, why else would anyone subject themselves to the long hours and lack of steady pay? There is something about being part of the art of theatre that makes theater techies feel the joy that computer geeks must feel when a program finally works as it was envisioned.
