I'm starting to see that now. I thought this forum was a little more frequented than this, and the high geek population would result in someone being able to answer my question, if not for the purpose of showing off their programming prowess.

It's nice though - I've never been on a forum in which most of the boards have less than a page of archives. It's pretty tidy. On that note, I won't be offended if this gets deleted by an admin, because it's more or less obsolete at this point.

The boards that have less than a page of archives were actually recently created, not a sign of inactivity. The sign of inactivity is that the boards that do have archives max out at seven pages, despite being active for a few years. Damn our CNC tendencies!

The last major Admin action was the SM:BC, and that didn't affect the content of the Forum itself, so this thread's probably not going to be deleted. Unless mage goes the route of Sheriff Dani, that is. We thrive on obsolescence, you see.

I'm going to leave the unspoken assumption that 'geek' necessarily means 'skilled with programming' alone, as I do not want to be the one to open up that can of worms.

I didn't mean to imply that all geeks are programmers. However, the probability of finding a programming-savvy person increases 10-fold when you're searching a forum that's composed of people who consider themselves geeky.

It's one of those "a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not always a square" sort of situations.

And if you claim that not all programmers are geeks on some level, try to think of an example of a non-geeky programmer.

Also, CNC?

While I question your statistics, I will admit that many programmers label themselves as 'geeks'. To do otherwise is to deny reality. That being said, your argument that all programmers are geeks at some level has a behind it the assumption that 'geek' can not be found in the population at large.

In point of fact, everybody in the world has something that they 'geek' over; Jocks are geeks in regard to athletics, Weather geeks obsess over low-pressure systems (among other atmospheric phenomena), and Marine biologists geek over new and interesting kinds of sea creatures. All of these people may count themselves 'geeky' and many do; now that 'geek' has moved beyond the original meaning (one who bites the heads off of small creatures as part of a carnival act) people have become less shy of using it.

A better choice of language would have been to ask for a 'Guru', or possibly even 'Hacker' amongst old-school programmers. Also, my particular 'geek' is the Forums, which explains this overly-thought-out post. That, and the Lexicon, which explains my usage of outside of it.

I was referring to geek as more of a cultural phenomenon, rather than an intellectual state. Yes, you can be "geeky" over just about anything, but there is definitely a social group that rejects mainstream culture and relishes in subcultures that revolve around things like fantasy, technology, gaming.

Yes, it is becoming more acceptable to consider yourself a geek, but we are still far from being embraced by the mainstream, popular culture.

speak for yourself. i'm embraced by mainstream popular culture all the time... and then things get sticky. then awkward. then one or more of us stops making eye contact and runs/shuffles back to our scooter and drives back to my mom's house while the wind wipes the tears from my eyes.

I could view the forums when I was a non-member, I wouldn't have joined if I didn't see how wacky some of the archived threads are.

It looks like it's been changed back now. I can log out and still see any of the threads.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.
