    ^ Mine was stock at 3.1 Ghz, now is stable at 4.3Ghz. I would like to push it farther, but that takes more time than I have now.

    ...you've seriously considered making your project race car run on Linux.

    I'll start...

    You know you're a geek when you can hold an entire conversation with friends in linux CLI talk......(i.e. 'cat /proc/lookattheassonthat!') or ('cd /pub/beer')
    Not really correct; it should be:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get beer
    ...followed, about 12 hours later, with:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge
    You are truly a geek when you walk through the big box store with your SO and see a wireless USB device on sale and nudge him/her and whisper, "No wonder they're getting rid of those, they only work with ndiswrapper."

    Your godson is in his room trying out the ISOs you brought round as virtual machines, his father and I are in another room burning and trying various *buntu LiveDVDs to decide which to install ... at 11:30PM on new year's eve ... and loving it!

    When your computer is down for two weeks, like mine was, you have no clue what to do until it is fixed.

    ...when you are building a laptop out of your Raspberry Pi that will be powered on power drill batteries. Why? Because I can.

    You know you're a geek when you buy a Mac Mini to reformat hard drive and install Linux.
