    Mirror, Mirror, on the wall...

    Who is the geekiest of them all.
    It's friday, and I'm really wondering...

    Who has skeletons in their closet? Who is the geekiest of them all? Who secretly wears Starfleet PJ's. I'd really like to get to know more people here, and I feel most comfortable amongst my Peers when I know at some of them are at the same level of geekdom (in areas other than IT), as me.

    So anyone? I've got a few geeky skeletons that I'll air...

    I'll start off with something small.
    **EDIT**

    Ok, too much too soon on that one...

    I er... hm.
    I have a deep love of Japanese Monster Movies.

    Now that IS geeky.

    You've now set the bar far too high for me.

    I used to have a collection of S-VHS tapes recorded off air via Sat Digibox - not bought - with every Star Trek series from TOS to Voyager - 4 episodes to each tape - in Series order - with printed labels on them - spreadsheet with my own personal rating for each epidsode - with 3 categories - Action - Story- Overall - graded 1 - 5.

    Also, when Voyage Home Came out (ST Film 4) went to Leicester Square (Was working in London at time so no big deal really) and watched all previous films as well in a 1 day session.

    But I'm better now (wife, kids, mortgage....)

    that's a bit easier.

    I have 2 Servers (miniitx and rackmount) and 3 computers in my house, and then 4 fully built older machines and enough parts for about 5 more plus lots of spares in the corner of the living room in a full height metal filing cabinet and a 500GB XBox just for Films and TVShows.

    ....and part of the South Wales LUG.

    In our two bedroom flat, we have my Powerbook G4 12", which travels everywhere. A Toshiba Satellite Pro which is my wifes main computer, The Desktop PC, which is also part of the Internet Broadcasting setup we have (hooked into a small mixing desk). There's also the Xbox which for the most part streams media off the desktop, the Wii which is just fun, and the PS2 which runs all its games off the internal HDD, which means it can be kept out of sight.

    Ok, to up the ante, last halloween I built a proton pack replica for my costume. And it now sits in my living room, as I can't bring myself to give/throw it away... And as a result of this I've just called the PowerMac I'm testing 'Gozer'.

    Erm ... it doesn't matter how geeky any of us think we are we will be out done by 2 members ... Geoff (I have posted over 4000 times on EduGeek) and Dos_Box (I *created* EduGeek).

    We all pale in comparison ... it is really just a case of who is third place (since neither of them ccan be split and called a clear winner).

    I've got one of those "No I will not fix your computer" t-shirts.

    The other day I saw a car registration plate "337 BFX" and was amazed!

    Re: Mirror, Mirror, on the wall...

    I have the complete series of "the tomorrow people", the proper ones, not the naffy 80's version on DVD

    I also have the complete series 1 and 2 of "Space 1999"

    Sadly, I only have the 2nd half of "Sapphire and Steel" DVD collection... now, if anyone has the first on dvd.....?

    I have the dvd collection of the prisoner plus i just love all the star wars films and have to watch them at least once a month. Deep space nine is also a must and the very first Star Trek progs. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and the number 42 comes to mind?
