Nocturnal Nerds

I think it's safe to say that most posters in the nocturnal forum are slightly nerd-ish Having met most of you Saturday night, my curiousity has heightened. Yer an interesting crowd !!


I wana know more, (including the people that weren't at the beers). Tell me something nerdy about yourself... hehehe like nerdy confessions...


I think my love for Medieval Literature was enough to share... but I probably have a few more. Go on, tell us something nerdy!! Confess!!

Used to roleplay, play text based strategy games, play battletech, had ~1,000 sci-fi+fantasy books, learn java programming and keep up to date with all facets of technology(from the latest advances in TN and S-IPS panels to changes to pixel shaders in a graphics card).

Now I'm boring and "normal" :/

While I can't remember any of it, I used to be able to do far too much with DOS than your average 12 year old should have been able to do in those times...

When my parents left me alone in the house when is was 13/14, I didn't throw parties or drink or other wild things, I took the pc's apart and tinkered with them...

That's how you learn. By breaking stuff then fixing it before people notice.

edit: this practice is also acceptable in the real world, so it seems.
