I don't go around town debating benchmarks with friends.

I wouldn't hide the fact that I love computers to anyone.

Once you get to know me, you'll find out that I like PCs, a LOT. If you don't know me, i'd still tell you if you brothered to ask.

yea, its feels weird talking to person saying "o hey I have a ATI X 1 9 9 0 XT" or "I overclocked my cpu at 2.8GHZ". So weird to say, but on a forum its so no weird

Friends are always calling me the nerd, geek whatever. Not in a bad way, we're all friends. And usually when I'm working on a program, most of them are happy to help me test something, so they know I'm big into programming. Others that don't know me that well are a little sketchy to run them, Lol!

Everyone knows I'm a geek...
(i'm a stereo typical computer geek (long hair, likes *nix systems)

Both with computers and other electronic things. and I'm a music geek.

Most of my friends know that I can do pretty much anything I like with a computer, (such as making it do stuff or making software etc), or that I can do pretty much anything I like with wires (cause I'm an Uber electronics geek)
my electronics geekery works out well whenever a friend in a band needs a PA system set up real quick, also works out well whenever my car breaks cause I can fix it.

As for girls not liking computer geeks, My girlfriend does... (and she was a bit of a computer geek herself and has actually worked for a computer magazine!).

Do I care if anyone cals me a geek?
No not really cause the fact that I'm a fairly ordinary guy means that if I seem like a geek to them it's actualkly probably a worse reflection of them...

and besides which being called a geek doesn't bother me, cause all those times people say that they'll be earning twice as much as that person, well it actually happens. all the people who were big into sports and not into school end up working as a builders labourer, or shelf stacking... whilst all the geeks go out and get city jobs and earn big money.

Is working in IT sexy? no... no job where you pick up computers and other stuf and carry bits around and crap is sexy, the guys at your office only say that cause they are stereo typical geeks who don't see a lot of women.
