You compare Guitar Hero, EVE, or any other good video game to Sex. Jokingly or otherwise.

The CIA calls you when they have a problem with one of their computers.

This, nuff said.

You even know what a Commodore 64 is.

You look up information on computing & computers even when you don't have to just because you like knowing about it. "Guilty"

CMOS, DOS, ROM, RAM, POST, and BIOS. You were thinking of what those acronyms stood for as you were reading, weren't you?

You feel in any way compelled to fill in the following blank. Even if just in your mind. QWERTY is a type of _________

I don't think I've ever done that, actually.

Guilty on all accounts.

When you run a uClinux shell on your nintendo DS and use it to do writing assignments, browse the web in text mode (even though you are sitting in front of your PC), and check your e-mail on it.

God I am such a geek... Is there any hope for me?

You win.

Although my keen interest in the boot-up sequence on one of the CNC laser cutters at work scores pretty high as well. mmm, Debian... Pity it lacks a normal keyboard or I could have some fun with it, and I'm not quite geeky enough to go get one and plug it in. Neutral

edit: Oh, another somewhat geeky thing I'm guilty of:
Changing your NAT IP range to 0xDEAD0000/16 and then setting all machines to *BEEF, *FACE and so on.

I've always thought of geeks as nerds in disguise, or alternatively put, nerds with (rudimentary) social skills.

Geek sort of implies the opposite I always thought. While nerd sort of leaves some room for the possibillity of a personal life.

Yeah, but, EVE is more fun and costs less money then a girlfriend. And as a plus, you can close it whenever it gets annoying.

Not anywhere near as close, but lets's say I'v had my fair share of teachers asking me stuff, and nearly a lawsuit on the end because I had some private data I wasn't supposed to have Rolling Eyes

I find that if someone, after all these years, are willing to sell their C64 it MUST be a scam or something seriously wrong with it. Personally I'd rather die of starvation with my C64 in my arms than live in eternal disgrace.

That said, link plz. Very Happy
