Doubtless. But you are, for example, competent to draw up an inventory
"this is a Data General machine with a sticker on the back reading
thus...", which is probably more than most people can do. You know
what kind of information is worth reporting and what isn't - for
example, my mother, who knows _nothing_ about computers, recently tried
to describe a machine to me over the phone, and didn't even know enough
to skip the mains power spec labeling (the "120VAC 35W" sort of stuff).
