Really? I've written many programs. I spend 50+ hours per week programming, deploying or troublshooting computers. My certs tell the story:

Microsoft Certified Professional 
(C++ application development)
Dell Certified Systems Expert 
Sony Certified Technician
Apple Certified Macintosh Technician
CompTIA A+ Certified PC Technician
Alienware Certified Technician
Lexmark Certified Technician
Cisco Certified Professional
Nortel Certified Professional
Polycom Visual Telephony Technician

In a typical month I work on more computers than most people here will touch in a lifetime. I have yet to meet a conscious computer, but who knows? Perhaps I'll meet one on Monday.
