I covered my nerd credentials in an earlier, post, but upon having been informed that a "geek" is its own thing by commenter Kevin (who called me out here), I feel I need to bust out my geek creds too.
5: I know what PEBKAC stands for.
4: I know the difference between a virus, a worm, and a trojan. (link to other blog)
3: My hard drive crashed; I ended up purchasing multiple pieces of hardware, tools, and software, and ultimately removed my hard drive, hooked it up to some hardware connected to another computer, and recovered everything salvageable. I did this with no assistance, other than from Google.
2: I have over 30 different passwords, most consisting of letters, numbers, and characters in random order, for a variety of different computer accounts--not counting passwords I need for work.
1: I have a blog, and I update it daily.
So what's the difference between a geek and a nerd? I don't know. For some reason, my dumb brain associates geeks with computers and nerds with comic books. Everything else sorta sorts itself from there. So what are a you--a geek? A nerd? I know you're not a cool kid, because if you were, you wouldn't be reading this...
