<< Kevin,
 	I think it certainly does classify you as a "geek", but it also
 means that the term "geek" is a term of HONOR and DISTINCTION.   Only the
 best of us get to be computer "geeks".  I am proud to be a geek, and glad
 that the Army has seen fit to let me be a geek for the rest of my career.  
 The term "nerd" on the other hand... is still slightly denigrating.

For some reason I think its time to bring up that a "geek" is someone who 
bites the heads off of chickens and bats in side shows.  Just a little tidbit 
for thought.

Rowen, a nerd but not a geek....
