Yes, I Call Myself A Geek

on 17 January, 2014

I know I am a geek. That’s not a bad thing anymore. I know it used to be, to be referred to as a ‘geek’, ‘nerd’ or ‘dork’ used to be considered a really bad thing. Not sure about ‘dork’… I don’t think I’d want to be called a ‘dork’ still.

The Kid is a geek too. He has grown up on computers, on my lap in front of my computer and got his very own for his fourth Christmas. And it has been a long procession of faster, sleeker and more sexy computers ever since. Just finished building his first one from scratch. And that is if you don’t count the raspberry pi system. I don’t have any hesitation to take apart a computer, but never had the desire to build one.

And we both love cartoons. The new, hip and trendy cartoons. Our favorite? Futurama. And for good reason. That show is amazingly, consistently funny. And it has references for geezers like me and for the Kid. Most of the time for both of us. One thing we love is that there is many references to Apple and those are always good.

Flatter than a MacBook Air? That’s pretty flat.

I have often thought of starting a website for Mac sightings…. you know, movies, television shows, ads. I heard recently that there was a site that was dedicated to the incorrect use of computers and computer code in movies. One example was the screen from Terminator where you’re looking through the terminator’s eye and there is code scrolling down… apparently that is the assembly code of the Apple II. Or so I heard.

I think I am off to find that website!
