Don't worry. There are people out there who think you are just as computer illiterate. I'm 23 and just started my first job as a software developer. I thought I was pretty cool with my custom watercooled and overclocked gaming machines, fixing all my family and friend's computer problems, using command line interfaces, etc. Then I get thrown in with people with 15 years programming experience and feel like a total dunce.
