    When you get dressed in the morning you also hang a pendrive around your neck.

    Suggest more.

    When you're drunker than you've ever been and you still know that the chances of successfully navigating an asteroid field are approximately 3,720 to 1.

    Well ok, this one isn't mine, but it's funny as hell.

    You refer to the curvy bits on women with the term 'NURBS'.

    Had a conversation about this last weeknd.
    Friend of ours was classified GEEK because:

    a) she created an excel file to keep track of her working hours although you punch in and out every day (just so she can double chack later that it is indeed registering the correct time for her)

    b) she wrote a little program which figures out which of the two trainstations in town she can reach quicker by bicycle.
    The apparant outcome was that if she remained a steady 12.5 Km/h Station A was the best choice.

    (you'd think the closest would be your best cjoice, eh?)


    She stopped there as she was drawing blank stares already.

    I'd say you're a geek if you chuckle to yourself when you see a "funny" license plate whilst driving on the motorway.

    I saw "LAN 547" and "PWN 267" last week in the same day and chucckled at both, then felt embaressed.

    There is a guy at work who does this...he's got what looks like a serious shoulder rig thing..

    Worryingly he also goes around asking people for their email addresses so he can whip the thing out, Magnum Force style..

    I think you know you're a geek when you start watching QVC just to pick at what that old fart "techy guy" says when he's demonstrating PCs/digicams etc

    So is it true then? You and Ruttyboy?
    I didn't like to assume. I just thought it was a rumour put about by... well, Ruttyboy actually.

    Congrats you two!

    Feel free to ignore this if I've got completely the wrong end of the stick. :o)

    Godamnit, I just blurted at those... :) Thank the maker I work for a game's company. Though, to add to the list...

    ...when you work with geeks, and they all nickname you über-geek.

    Edit: Heh. When you correctly umlaut the word "über". :)

    Saying "LOL" when in a conversation with someone.

    Having either a memory stick or an old CPU attached to your keyring.

    Well some women don't like 'em being called boobs. That seems to insinuate they're somehow a mistake.

    Zeps is great. I love it. I would though, cos I'm the one trying to pimp it everywhere...

    ... damn.

    Or used to walk into Dixons years ago and ask the cretin on the shop floor to demonstrate Amigas when he patently didn't have a fecking clue.

    ...

    What?

    (Did I mention the time I pressed the key on the shop Archimedes to go into command line mode and when I returned 30 minutes later they'd put a sticker on the monitor saying "Out of order"...?)

    Have a look in Stevas's thread he posted yesterday and went to about 6 pages, I can't remember the title but it's bloody funny! It started off innocent and got totally hijacked by an "AT & Rutty situation" discussion.


    And yeah, 'tis true :)

    I had a USB stick until recently when the keyring bit broke. Before that I had an old memory stick.

    And I keep finding leads, like a stray RF lead recently, in my handbag.

    Does anyone else get annoyed when people misuse "tech" terms in the office environment ?

    Favourite one here at the moment is to claim you are short of bandwidth which translates to "I'm too busy to do that." Been known to lose my temper at this and recommend people upgrade to a faster connection, always met by blank looks of course.
