    Dunno if that really qualifies as geek...
    Anyway, advanced math (calculus, anyone?) is essential to advanced algorithm development (such as DSP) and certainly is an edge in programming in general.
    However other than that, using computers efficiently requires less math than abstraction and conceptualisation skill, and good muscle memory.

    You know those word things that have been going around Facebook? It looks like a word search and you are instructed to post the first word you see when you look at it.

    You know you're a geek when the first word you see is ROM... and everyone else is posting things like "appear", "day", "sun", etc. ...
    int main() {
    insert_clever_signature();
    return 0;
    }

    When you have a perfectly working Ubuntu install but you decide to wipe the hard drive and install Arch anyway. When you are showing off ssh on android to ssh on android to someone who obviously doesn't care but you think it's super cool.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Maybe we should have a party at when we reach 1000 pages, or the person that makes the first post on page 1000 gets a prize. that would be true geek contest would it not?
