    Your family ask you to have a look at their xp machine and when they return, they have linux.
    Guilty on both counts (actually, a liveCD to scare them ****less). I see you are using Feisty. Upgrade now ad you will have many updates. (actually, they seem to have tapered off in recent days, but you still get several a day.) And it is stable now (for me, anyways) EDIT: And get 64-bit for crying out loud! Unless you want WINE. Not in the 64-bit Gutsy repos yet. /edit

    You know you are a geek when Sherlock Holmes mysteries bore you because they are too trivial.

    You know you are a geek when you have created an AI that can solve said mysteries running on legacy hardware.

    Not exactly geeky, but related to the firefox tabs above.

    I always want to use ctrl+f to find stuff in books.
    Your a geek when you say this,

    Tell your Calculus Teacher to remember to use the Pens for aligning the board with the projector and software. It provides a much more accurate point when writing.

    Also, many don't know this, there is an alignment and Keyboard buttons on the SmartBoard Tray.

    Lastly, Only one instrument at a time (using the red marker and the eraser at the same time doesn't work)

    Just some tips from an HS Tech.

    Either you don't qualify, or you failed to update your profile.
