Obvious: At some point in the past, you've exhibited behavior that the rest of the world could classify as "stalking."
 
2002-09-12 10:12:36 AM  
Oh, I see how it is. I spend one night a week staring through your bathroom window and all of a sudden I'm a "stalker". I consider it more of a hobby.

Doo-dah is sub-standard but acceptable.

Number 12: When your co-worker (who is currently in the process of restoring a 66 Pontiac Lemans) mentions that he's going to strip his firewall this weekend, the first thing you think of is data filters, 3DES encryption, and VPN tunnels.

You spend Friday nights cataloging your VHS X-Files episodes, even though you already own the complete DVD sets.

You have an online petition trying to get Tristar Pictures to make a Real Genius sequel.

Kind of a sucky list. I am sure Farkers can do much better.


"1. If, by some happy accident, you someday have kids, you want to name them after your favorite fonts."

No, but my kids are name after Star Trek characters.
Does that qualify me as a geek?

Whoops. Second Try. That's what I get for being distracted by actual work.

I'll go ahead and do this before anyone else does it.

12. Your Fark profile looks like this
 
2002-09-12 04:49:44 PM  
If you biatch on Fark because someone came up with more idea's than you, you are a assha- er geek.

So what? :) My first day as a TotalFark; I got a little carried away with the power...(eyes open wide)...the control...the ascension to total dominance of non-TotalFarkers...(clench fist).

So uh, fooey. I rule.

You meticulously keep your thumbnail page of old photoshop entries updated, using shell scripts and C programs to automatically generate HTML.

You make Photoshops like this and think it's absolutely hilarious.
 
2002-09-12 07:09:59 PM  
You spend 40 hours a week on a computer, and go home and turn yours on.

(I do not do this.)

I seriously hope that isn't as obvious as you think.
That's pretty scary.

Hey, I think Verdana is a great name for a pet (or was it a kid, who cares).

You have more sex while in your desk chair than in your bed.
 
2002-09-13 05:03:43 AM  
You know the *real* odds that 9-1-1 would come up in the NY lotto on 9/11, and you spend all day desperately trying to explain it in terms that the masses can understand.
 
2002-09-13 05:04:29 AM  
You think The Calling are a good band.


sorry SweaterGirl, Damn I need a new thing to make me laf.

Not that *I* did. Really.

You think anime chicks are hot.
 
2002-09-13 05:08:25 AM  
Seriously though, I finally became a geek this year when I tell people things I've seen on Fark. They always say what Fark? What's that? I say a website, then they say okay, and snicker. The bastards.
 
2002-09-13 05:09:38 AM  
But they are good!
Damn you Pornosaur
Damn you to Hell.

I must be slipping in my old age

Someone has pounced you in #fark
 
2002-09-13 05:12:50 AM  
your room is set up with a giant fan pointing directly into your computer case because part of the processors core is slightly chipped and therefore your computer crashes when temp > 70 degrees and you are too lazy to just replace it, after replacing EVERYTHING ELSE in an attempt to fix the problem.

you blast heavy metal while reading fark posts.

"cap'n" is written on the top of your computer case and a little captain statue sits upon it.
 
2002-09-13 05:15:23 AM  
strangers ask you to fix their computer after bumming a cigarette
 
2002-09-13 05:15:26 AM  
You've got chicken feathers wedged into your teeth.
 
2002-09-13 05:17:01 AM  
I'm not in #Fark right now. I haven't been for a few days, actually:(

I guess that could be the definition of geekdom, you make friends in #fark.

But I personally wouldn't have it any other way:)

Someone mentions a party, and you automatically assume they are talking about a LAN-party.
 
2002-09-13 05:23:33 AM  
If you find the car license plates "E404 HTM" and "E500 ASP" highly amusing.
 
2002-09-13 05:23:46 AM  
The crazy people in #fark ask where Sweater girl is and you say the Fark boards, and they ask you what that is.
