You're a geek, IG, not a nerd.  ;-)

"geek" has been taken over by wannabes. The existence of something called "Geek Squad" should pretty much put an end to the use of the term by us real old-skool types.

But "nerd" is now mainstream, too. People are purposefully buying glasses that let them look like Clark Griswold... and they call them "Nerd Glasses".

But, has it been perverted in the same way as how Best Buy has done with "Geek"? ;-)

Here's the bottom line: unless your interest in computers (or whatever) caused a PAINFUL SOCIAL STIGMA for you in high school, you are not an authentic geek/nerd.

yes, for some reason them simply letting you alone doesn't work out.. neither it happens in reality nor you would become the person you are now.

Nerd Herd is the 'geek squad' from the tv show Chuck.

I was called a nerd in school and mistreated, but not for being interested in computers. More for just doing my own thing.

you either need to have a window with the html displayed, and cut'n'paste what you see, or press the tiny html button, and paste it into the window that pops up.

Yeah, I think it's the other way around, not that you had to have been made fun of in high school because of the computer interest, rather, any deep interest in pretty much any area could have been cultivated as a result of a feeling of socially ostracized during the teenage years, which would develop you into the nerd you are today. Or geek. Whatever

There's some TV show called Geek, right? bunch of high school kids feeling hated and walked all over and they break out into song like 5 times during each episode.

Did the latter for the first and the former for the second, actually - thus the surprise.  Oh well....folks are welcome to check it out on my LJ, if want.

It's called "Glee" and it totally doesn't help the situation. All of the songs are really awful renditions of the originals, and the show really works hard to glorify stereotypes.

I want to see a show about a high school where the nerds totally bludgeon the jocks and other in-crowd people to death with baseball bats.

The thermostat wiring in our home was very messy so I ripped it all out and re-did it.  No more wires taped together and zip-tied to the pipes.  And of course I couldn't resist the opportunity to add an indicator panel that shows the status of everything, including which floors are calling for heat.  Yes, I'm a nerd, and proud of it.



Nice labels.  What is the label printer you used that does 2 rows?

It probably depends on if you started on a 386 or a teletype hooked up to the local power companies mainframe.  Most of the trouble probably started shortly after that.
