I was shocked when I took a geek test and scored a 98. Some of the questions were just general science questions (I'm an English major who never got past an associate degree) and off the wall stuff like recognizing pictures, not having to look at the periodic table of elements to remember stuff, etc.
I didn't get my first computer until December of 2001. I still have it.
I didn't open a case or upgrade RAM until 2003.
All of my desktops are lower-end OEM pieces of crap.
I didn't install Linux until last February.
I didn't use DSL until about a month after I joined here.
I just ordered my first laptop (Thinkpad T-21) and will replace a hard drive for the first time when it gets here.
Nonetheless, I frequently get chided for being a "geek" among friends, family, and neighbors.
Sorry, I don't do windows.
