i think it's more about my age than my level of geek...


My computer geek score is greater than 80% of all people in the world! How do you compare? Click here to find out!


shawn posted a link to this self-test about your level of geek. he only scored a 17 but i know he's more of a geek than i am. he has a podcast of his own. it has to be the questions that require being older than 25 to get that pushed me so far ahead on the score.

i really did play pong on a table-game - not the home atari, but the little table you sit across from your opponent at. and i remember commodore 64 coming out and being tremendously advanced over the trash-80 model 1 i was using.

david russell, david song, wes ratcliff, josh foster - i'm callin' you out. i wanna know what you score on the test. if you can't top 80 then the test cleary has an age bias.

I got an 89! Some of those questions were tough! I guess I scored on some because I used to do computer engineering at LSU where I got a chance to do some C/C++, Unix, and Assembly stuff. Oh well, 89 isn't bad, but I'm not as 1337 as I would like to be ... I was drawing blanks on some of those questions.

What the crap. That thing is long.

Real geeks have real geek stuff to do like keep servers and junk running. No time for these little wanna be geek tests.

P.S. If you were a *true* geek you would know how to go around the system without taking that crazy test.

My score pwns you all.

Sorry Dan, I just got the official call out today. I've been a geek-in-hibernation a few days. :)

I got a 71 on this a couple of weeks ago. I've lived 24 years if that changes the scope of the score for me any.

Anybody who scores an 80 or up has to be a total geek. The kind of geek that really doesn't get out much. :D

David said...

Oh no. I've lived 25 years and got a 89 ... but I think David is right ... I don't get out much :-)
