Not just GEEKS... OLD GEEKS!
Hey, your right there with us pal!
Yeah, yeah... I know...
Commodore 64 was my first. Wrote a "game" in BASIC... none of this fancy stuff that you folks had. Seven kids on a mailman's pay... we didn't have much money... neighbor didn't know how to use the thing, so I got to keep it for a while. I really loved learning it. I still LOVE learning... computers and other things... lots of history and physics... weird stuff.
But, see... I don't want to lay claim to the geek side. . I run a business (yeah, tech-focused, I know ), surf, rock-climb, drive fun motorcycles and cars... I am much more than a GEEK!
Okay... "old'... yeah, I have a simple philosophy on that: I LOVE getting old; I know what the alternative is.
