We have a pretty nerdy TV set up going here. Due to the fact that we only have one spot to get the southern shot needed, the Direct TV antenna feeds parallel outputs several hundred feet to my office. From there, one signal is re-xmitted up to the house on five of the ten, 500 foot runs of twisted pairs of CAT5 connecting my office to the house. From there, the remote control is transmitted from the house down to my office to control the DTV receiver. I also have two phone lines, and now I want to network our computers. So, since I've used up all ten pairs, I need to put in another 500 run of CAT5. :grumpy: I really thought that ten pairs would do it, but I never saw the DTV thing coming. Of course we may not be here long enough to worry about it.

Yaaarh, me nerd pirate mateys, I be finding a new quiz for ye!

My pirate name is:
Captain Ethel Flint

Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

Well, since my name is James :biggrin:

Your pirate name is:
Captain Anne Roberts
Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr!

YARH! i be the real cap'n of this herre ship! arrrg mateys!

Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. You're musical, and you've got a certain style if not flair. You'll do just fine. Arr!

You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

We should form our own pirate fleet in conjunction with the PF sisterhood. Think of the leverage and power we could have!

Your pirate name is: Bloody Sam Bonney
Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!


Arrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not going to read this entire thread: no time.

I'm pretty sure I'm a geek or nerd because: a) Everyone thinks I'm smart, even if I try to send the opposite message. b) I'm very adept at computers. c) Grammar errors make me flinch (I'm joking.. mostly). d) I spend a lot of time creating mental constructs.

Also, looks matter a lot to people, just so ya know. Almost everyone who sees me thinks I'm a stoner, even though I actually avoid all drugs and getting drunk. Stoners are usually mellow people to hang out with, though (as long as they're not [explicit deleted] who try and use peer pressure against me).

A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you're a tough person. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

I just tried to shoo a fly away from my monitor with the cursor. I think I'm beyond nerd tests now.

A friend used to recite it to me, when we wasn't reciting sqrt(2) to 200+ decimal places.

I don't think of myself as a nerd, but I asked my 15 year old daughter anyway. It turns out that I am a nerd.

I did that once, thinking that maybe the light difference would make it fly away :uhh:
