    yeah its you !

    Is TSQL is some sort of retro-virus SQL like in the Resident Evil games. It turns a normal query into some weird mutant ODBC spanning super-query ?

    How do you suggest the selection should be made?
    - Using the Geek test or something?
    - Listing reasons that make one eligible?

    Re: Geekest Geek.

    Even though all of my work, and much of my leisure time involves playing – oops! – I mean working with computers and other random computery technology I can't be a geek.

    I don't like all that Lord of the Ring fantasy nonsense, don't read or watch any Sci-Fi unless it's funny (e.g. Hitchhiker's or Futurama), and I have some fashion sense.

    I don't even know why I'm posting on this thread...

    Re: Geekiest Geek.

    Presumably, the geekiest geek will know what the motto of the monastery is. They will also know what the monastery *is*.

    If there is more than one answering that question, then they'll need a feed to *the other place*.

    Geek credentials?

    Ok was Co-Sysop on a BBS Pre-WWW (well before the WWW was what it is today). Wrote my own door games.

    Had a website called S*x-4-geeks a tongue in cheek mock-charity but was mainly a repository for geeky jokes, my computer programs etc.

    Am a computer programmer / web designer for a living. I write applications for PC and PDA and am never far away from my IPAQ (my spare brain really)

    I read math books for fun. I once calculated Pi to over 5000 decimal places over an annoyingly long time on my home PC because I felt like it.

    Most of my books are either Sci-fi or fantasy or Computer/math books.

    I (at last count) had 6 domains and associated websites on the go.

    I have over 600 DVD's and a very nerdy habit of memorising most of the lines our of them. ( sorry)

    I have 3 Slide rules, a 1940's AVO meter, an excessive number of very loud ugly shirts and far too many t-shirts imported from Think Geek in the USA.

    I know my geek code. and I also know that the 8 numbers that make up my date of birth in ddmmyyyy format crops up at position 96,698,076 in Pi.

    And I know allt he words (and sing along to) Three dead trolls in a baggie- "Every OS Sucks" and ''Weird Al'' Yankovic- "It's all about the Pentiums"

    me a geek?

    naw what gives you that idea?


    note I CAN'T be a geek.. I have a girlfriend and a life
