Rands In Repose: The Nerd Handbook

A nerd needs a project because a nerd builds stuff. All the time. Those lulls in the conversation over dinner? That’s the nerd working on his project in his head.

It’s unlikely that this project is a nerd’s day job because his opinion regarding his job is, “Been there, done that”. We’ll explore the consequences of this seemingly short attention span in a bit, but for now this project is the other big thing your nerd is building and I’ve no idea what is, but you should.

If you’re still reading, then I’m thinking that your nerd is worth keeping. Even though he’s apt to vanish for hours, has a strange sense of humor, doesn’t like you touching his stuff, and often doesn’t listen when you’re talking directly at him, he’s a keeper. Go figure.

Oh, Ax, thank you for the good laugh tonight! That is all soooo true! I admit to it all, even the messy cave part. Thank you!

Crikey that's funny.

The best part about it being funny is that it's true. Now excuse me. I have to get back to figuring out what other OS's work in Qemu. It's very exciting. I wonder if I can run a Linux VM in Linux.

i'm gonna have to give that full thing a read at some point...too busy "working on projects".....hehe the wife has finally stopped asking me what i'm thinking about when i'm floating off in space....there's only so many times that a "non nerd" can hear the words "active directory" before their eyes permanantly glaze over

:) For sure, there are times I try to explain things I'm working on to my wife - or other non-nerd - and I'm sure most of it goes completely over her head! I opt for the simple answer of "research" now.
