comment Is there a word for a non-geek?
I was thinking the same thing, however it implies an anti-technology bent beyond mere ignorance.

comment “Fluctuates widely” or “fluctuates wildly”
You are correct - point taken. I have insufficient reputation for that, so I probably should have just passed on the comment.

comment When to use “me” or “myself”?
@Barrie England This is the compound subject/object usage, which is listed in the dictionary as "informal": http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/myself Whether Informal is a polite term for incorrect is a matter for debate. My take is that if your intent is to add sophistication to your speech in an attempt to avoid using the lowly 'me', then you are incorrect because 'me' (or 'I') IS correct. However, if you have some artistic or poetic intent then 'myself' in a compound subject or object can be acceptable.
