What do you get when you merge an elephant with a duck? Well, in this case you just might get this week’s Featured Contributor, Techie2013! Find out why!
First Name: Harry

What is your Answers.com user name and how did it come about?
Well, I am a technical person, dealing with all aspects of computers. I am a huge fan of community management, and this is normally where I spend most of my time. Also 2013 is the year I graduate. So, thus, Techie2013 was born March 2, 2011.
Where in the world do you hail from? What makes this place special?
I hail from Europe, even though I live in the US. Life over there is rather simple and quiet.
How did you first discover Answers.com?
I was searching on Google for a computer question. I can’t remember what the question was, but it sure did make me wiki addicted!
If you could be any animal, which one would you be and why?
I do like elephants because they are smart, but also maybe a duck, as they can fly. I know! I could be an elephanduck! :)
What is your favorite thing to do on Answers.com?
It varies from time-to-time. One day I will be recategorizing and answering questions and dealing with alternates, and the next day dealing with RSA and vandals! Vandals beware!
What accomplishments are you proud of?
Becoming a Mentor, as I couldn’t have done it with my awesome Mentor, Hooweestik. He has worked with me many hours and is a great guy to get help from. To this day, combine all the times we have talked on video, the phone, and chat, I’m guessing we have talked over 200 hours! Wow!
What is the craziest thing that has ever happened to you?
There are too many to choose from, so I’ll just choose one: We are singing in choir, and I ended up getting increasingly louder, and I am rolling my R’s as I go. Eventually I get to the point to where I am hitting so high, I crack, and everyone falls on the floor laughing. Good day, minus the sore throat!
