Short for technicians. The people that make your shows happen. Often seen backstage, on the grid and any other dark space. Has a wide range of skills, knows how to fix anything with a role of duct tape. Rather sexual, doesn't need an excuse to feel you up. Always there for eachother. Strage obssessions with glowtape. Doesn't know what to do with self when tech is cancled. Basicly lives in the theater. Shows would be nothing without them. GO, techies, GO!
Those techies are strage creatures, I think one just tried to feel me up.

3)Techy is a term that a "Computer Nerd" may use to refer to himself or other "Computer Nerds" but may not be used by others (Kind of like the equivalent to the N word for "Computer Nerds") It is derogatory for non Techys to refer to someone as a Techy.

*Can also be spelled "Techie" ((however the "Teamsters" that work back stage at theaters are now using the term "Techie" 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. So please respect the title)
