((however the "Teamsters" that work back stage at theaters are now using the term "Techie" (with the "ie" spelling) to try and dissociate them selves with the teamsters that work on film sets.)Not cool!!! real Techies/Techys have come up with pretty much every major advancement in the technological field for the last 40+years. without them you wouldn't have the computerized lighting and sound systems that you use todays. that would make your jobs a lot harder.
