    Classifcations and ..... ?

    What different classifactions of IT people do you get ie nerds, geeks , etc etc ?

    Also does that make us all geeks ( considering we are apart of edu geek ) ?

    My mind wondered off for a bit there lol

    Re: Classifcations and ..... ?

    I can touch type in my own fashion, I have a website and I own 4 computers therefore I must be a geek (according to everyone I know!!)

    And oh yeah...I fix other people's computers :-|

    Main classification according to the ITCrowd... "Standard Nerds" but i prefer geek.

    @gecko: You can watch the IT Crowd at www.channel4.com - episodes will be on there 1 week before airing on 4 (or so they say - since it's a bouble-bill on Friday and there's only 1 episode online...)

    Re: Classifcations and ..... ?

    I'm a self-confessed geek, and proud of it

    I usually carry phone/PDA around with me, I enjoy being on the computer and internet, could say I'm addicted to it Do loads of work on projects at home, sometimes for work stuff. Home network of 6 computers, 2 of which are servers. But this is all mainly due to the lack of constraints (such as a family of my own)
