Lock up your porn stashes, the geeks are having a dinner.

By johnboy - 25 January 2006 14

I have sensed disturbances in the force ‘net. A string of blogs which have previously not troubled me here, here, and here) are organising a geeks dinner at Babars in Civic on 08-FEB-05.

They would appear to be the inferior geek tribe still wedded to windows but geeks they still be.

What’s Your opinion?

Yes to Geek Pride 2006!!! I’ve thought it really unfair for a while now that other cultures are promoted in our society, but the Geeks are usually written off as freaks by ‘mainstream’ Australia. And then, we already have an annual Booner Pride rally – Summernats…

RandomGit – I’d like to say that I am better at BF2 (XBOX), but the truth of the matter is that I regularly get own3d by twelve year olds.

Anyway – maybe the subject of the geek dinner should be whether we need a geek pride day in Canberra 😛

Ah, but did you subscribe to Warpstone? Thats the rub. How about writing to the WFRP mailing list, or did you once write for Strike-To-Stun?

I bet I got you beat down there. I bet you have no idea of what I’m talking about either.

No need to argue about the Geek Hierarchy!

Here it is, all scientifically proven:

You’ll notice that being in IT isn’t intrinsically geeky. However, knowing that there’s both a tabletop and RPG version of Warhammer may mean that I qualify 🙂

That’s table top games OzChick, not role playing games. Don’t push us serious gamer types down to the level of the great pubescent unwashed.

Geek meet? What about the CanCon 2006 meet at EPIC this weekend. IT Geeks aren’t comparable to those who spend hours upon hours playing role playing games like Warhammer… Now thats sad…

Mitch sucks at BF1942 as well. He’s been wanting payback ever since I had him over for a LAN last year. Mitch, you bitch!

I understand that Samuel Gordon Stewart will be their special guest speaker 🙂

Mitch is great, I work with the guy. He enhances my geek cred, programmatically speaking.

while we’re reminiscing, has kramer de-maori-fied, does he have any face left?

johnboy 10:13 am 25 Jan 06

IIRC Che he was the only man in Canberra who could equal our own NTP when the nitrous bulbs came out.

I know i am Geeky (Posting here earns a couple of points) but i don’t think i’m that geeky…
I piture a Table of over 30 somethings with receeding hair lines and long greasy pony tails, that all still live at home.

It should be a barrel of laughs talking about who is hotter, Leia or the chick from Star trek….

I can feel the cool slowly being sucked out of babars….

che 9:48 am 25 Jan 06

Geoff would have been in your brothers and Kramers year I think JB

Geeks they most certainly be, if they think that announcement was witty.
