Of course it pays when you have two geek types operating as a team, although I have yet to meet a woman who didn't display a flair for technology once she got her hands on something 'techy' and decided it was worth her time
. My GF is the gadget and database design wonk in our relationship. I go to her for tech support when it comes to those sorts of things.
FWIW I really enjoy watching the young ladies in my family whenever they get around a computer or workbench. They put the boys to shame. And I'm not the least bit surprised.
