How can you call your self a computer nerd !!!!!

on Sunday, February, 16, 2003 8:33 AM
........AND NEVER SEEN TRON!

I talked to several of "computer nerds" the other day and when I mentioned how excited I was about the new Tron2.0 game coming out and they replied with " TRON.....WHHAAASS DAT!?". Needless to say I about fell over with shock cause I thought that word NERD and TRON went hand and hand . I think Disney should re-release the movie to theaters (considering I was 2 when it was released) if the game makes a good buck, then this way its a bit more hype for when the new movie comes out *always thinking positive*.


PS dig the new improvements to the site, now all I have to do is get a new avatar and find somewhere to "host" it

If life was all fun and games, we would be issued a light cycle at birth

They're not REAL nerds. They're nerd wanna-be's.

Pretty bad when someone can't even get "being a nerd" right.

Sounds right to me. ANd they haven't even seen the movie either. Come on. THe ones that I have spoken to myself personally. They have all seen the movie one time or another. And they remember seeing at least once in their lifetime.

In this day and age, being a nerd has nothing to do with pocket protectors and duct-tape glasses....it's all about the movies and TV shows ya watch. Anyone here that has a TV that is not tuned to either Tech TV, the SciFi Channel, or Cartoon Network a majority of the time is in serious danger of getting their geekdom lifetime membership revoked



Compucore, of course, is exempt from this, seeing as he probably does not get any of these channels in Canada (I'm just messing with ya dude )

There's a friend of mine at work that calls me "Tron" or "Mr. Nerd" when I come in. I ritualisticly reply "jealous" or "dull, normal man."

Well I don't got tech TV, sci fi channel and the cartoon network on the basic cable channels that I am getting through from Videotron. I still consider myself a geek in some ways. Since I do subscribe to Lockergnome.com for new things that are out on the market and PCStat.com as well for things that are not always available to the public market like a 3-d monitor that is worth about $45,000 american.

HA HA HA! I "DID" call him that one time. He just stared at me 'til I gave the proper "dull, normal man" reply and he finally came back to life.
