|According to me.||A geek is someone who is enjoys
being part of something (usually associated with technology), their knowledge extends beyond average and
above-average person's, and is often considered "off-the-wall;"
Someone who knows the in's and out's of something so well that the often

should be afraid of being labeled in. Geekdom is not a stigma it is a
blessing, even though it sometimes seems to be an unfortunate curse,
especially when dealing with a load of work from several BOFH's all about to drive you to the

needed because without us many things you have come to enjoy would not be.
