    What's that word...

    What's that word for using something you know on something that's not related to something that you know. For instance, what's the word for creating computer science programs for studying on classes that have nothing to do with computer science. You are described as...I believe the word(s) started with a c, but I could be wrong.

    Are you thinking of 'computer literate'? Just a wild guess on my part!

    No, something like versatile, handy, applicable and constructive, but none of those... it's something else. Thanks for the effort!

    May "to come in handy" be what you are looking for?
