There's a difference between a nerd and a geek.

A nerd has no social skills, regardless of technical ability.

A geek has great technical skill, regardless of social ability.

Nerds usually hang together, because noone else will hang with them.

Geeks usually hang together, because noone else understands what they're saying.

Why the sudden interest? Because I am now an ubergeek. The alpha geek among the geeks at my office, in fact.

How can you tell? My glasses broke.

A nerd would have used tape to put them back together.

Geek glasses!

I soldered them.

I'm getting new ones tomorrow, and I just wanted to show off before I lose them.
