    I guess I would be an over active Linux user, not a nerd, but a computer geek.

    Not really, actually not at all. I DO wear glasses occasionally because of my poor eyesight in my left eye. I don't dress up as a nerd at all, quite the contrary actually. Some people are really surprised when I tell them that I am a computer geek, because I look so average like everyone else.

    I have 20/15 vision-- I can see at 20 feet what most people can see at 15 feet. So no glasses.

    I don't consider myself a nerd, but I do consider myself a geek. And if you've ever met me, you will remember how awe-struck you were at my attractiveness. Really.

    Oh, then I suppose I've posted in the wrong thread. Do you want me to nuke my post?

    Well, the next best thing is for you to send me all your money. Of all the dudes I know, I am the most worthy cause.
