Or if you don't own a car, because you're saving up for more computers. :smile:

You can explain the differences between DDR, and SDRAM, name off the layers of the OSI layer model, know the difference between 182.1 and 182.3 topology, "LL" means something to you, and you owned a computer BEFORE there was Aol, but yet you still can't name the basic components of an automobile engine, let alone the 4 engine cycles.

What makes you think the same nerd doesn't know both LL grammars and overhead cams? Some nerds are pretty versatile...

Oh, and DDR is a *type* of SDRAM.

My bad. was referring to double density ram vs single density. And You're right it was a bad example. I had too many jumkers not to know the basics (compression,gas/oil, spark, decompression)

...You can assemble a computer in fifteen minutes from spare parts in you bedroom, but you can't put together a good shirt and pants combination no matter how much time you have.

YOU ARE A NERD IF...

You try to enter your password on the microwave.

You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

You e-mail your mate who works at the desk next to you.

Your reason for not staying in touch with friends is that they do not have e-mail addresses.

When you go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.

When you make phone calls from home, you accidentally insert a "1" to get an outside line.

Your CV is on a disk in your pocket.

Your biggest loss from a system crash was when you lost all of your best jokes.

Your supervisor doesn't have the ability to do your job.

Your relatives and family describe your job as "works with computers".

You read this list, and kept nodding and smiling.

You schedule your important meetings for Saturday nights.
 
You say LOL in real life

You name your computer...including the cpu, the motherboard, the RAM, the keyboard

The last sunset you've seen is from a wallpaper

You have more Online friends than real life friends

You haven't listened to a CD in years

You use internet abbreviations like "brb" in real life.

You find it difficult to write snail mail without emoticons.

Your computer time is constantly interrupted by such nuisances as eating and sleeping.

You contribute to "You know you are a nerd if..." threads on an online forum.

...If you begin to explain something about a computer and the person you are telling clouds over and says, "All I'm hearing is blah, blah, blah, blah." you are probably a nerd.

(I get this all the time.)

I HATE that. I can't stand when people say "oh, he works with computers".
