Getting Your Nerd On
So tomorrow night after recording our weekly podcast episode, Kreyas myself and our fellow podcast hosts will be watching Hitchhikers Guide on Sci-Fi while playing Stargate: SG-1 the board game (thats right, the board game lol XD).


Besides that, I enjoy playing things like Doom 3, Half-Life 2, and Unreal Tournament on my desktop (when they worked ;_; ). Also, through the powers of osmosis, I am starting to pick up on more and more computer geek stuff a la Kreyas.

So I admit it, I am a hopeless nerd and so are most of my friends <!-- s:geek: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_geek.gif" alt=":geek:" title="Geek" /><!-- s:geek: -->



Now for the million dollar question: How do you get your nerd on?

*evil grin* wouldn't you like to know

Re: Getting Your Nerd On
I work as a computer person, wearing several different hats, at least 1-2 of which could be labelled "guru".
I play miniatures wargames, including assembling, converting and painting minatures.
I like chess.
I play boardgames.
I'm a genius, I can pass the MENSA entrance test while half-asleep, sleep-deprived and half-drunk.
I LIKE to program.
I build computers.
I'm a gamer.
I've made my own games.
I play pen&paper RPGs - sometimes even over the internet!

However, I consider myself a 'geek' not a nerd. Cause, well, geeks have skills and besides, the geeks will inherit the earth.

Re: Getting Your Nerd On
i setup and maintain internet forums. <!-- s:geek: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_geek.gif" alt=":geek:" title="Geek" /><!-- s:geek: -->

apart from that, i wear a binary watch, i give names to my computers (and they even act like it - i once named a computer after a world of warcraft boss, and it refused to work with me), i read books on computational complexity, computer graphics, and distributed systems and enjoy it, i attend and organize larps,... uhm, i just cannot think of anything else.

Re: Getting Your Nerd On
-I plan for what to do in my video games in my spare times
-I spend most of my time working on a minimum of three browser windows at once
-I get bored if I have less than three
-I create my own vocabulary on a regular basis
-I keep track of my phases (I once had a phase where I used "danke" whenever thanking someone; now I bow)

Re: Getting Your Nerd On
I find nerds and geeks sexy.
I like it when someone talks nerdy to me.
I'm a glorified network plumber.
I do work on desktops, switches, and routers some. My real expertise is not in making your internets work but working on the path it takes to get to you.
I love to watch my husband or anyone play video games.
I play table top RPGs, not just limited to D&D.
I love to watch people play table top RPGs
I collect comic books and graphic novels.
I used to spend a lot of time at the library now i spend oodles of time at the book store.
I love to go used book shopping.
My online gaming is not that geeky cause it's Puzzle Pirates but I loved to watch my husband play WOW or DDO when he was still playing.
I love to read, I'm a serious word eater.

My husband keeps his Mensa card in his wallet, so when someone proclaims that he's a genius he can flip it open and declare "That's what the card says!"

Lady Merencara has spoken.
Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.

Re: Getting Your Nerd On
-I read. A lot. Rapidly. (aka Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in 6 hours.)
-I've heard of virtually any internet meme in existence. And if I haven't, I'll sure as heck remember it when I see it. (Dramatic chipmunk? WRYYYY? Numa numa, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, etc, ad infinitum) This is more appropriately known as being a "/b/tard" or "youtube whore" but whatever.
-I visit, contribute to, and laugh at, bash.org
-There will be cake at the end.
-I play chess
-I carry more than 2 pens/pencils/sharpies/etc on me at any time.
-I check out 8 or more books from the library at one time and return them on time, all read.
-I don't actually play Warhammer 40k, but still helped paint figurines with my friends/boyfriend.
-I check up on forums, daily.
-I actually was PART of the Gaia Online "zurg" plot. As in I know everyone in the comic, I talked to NPCs, etc.
-I read and have written fanfiction. Horrible, horrible fanfiction. DX

I don't have anything else right now. XD
