So – You want to be a Computer Dude?
The word / expression “Dude” is not a reference to being male, female, or whatever, it is a designation of “Skill Level.”
When we go surfing – anyone rated “Dude” just means they have the skill to surf safely, do stunts; and did not have to be watched by
the others for group safety.. :)Todd
