Geek stuff, sci-fi... Geek is defined by Dictionary.com as 'A person who is single-minded or accomplished in a scientific or technical pursuit'. Many of us either acknowledge ourselves as computer geeks or are labeled by Friends, Family, and/or Colleagues as the such. This is not a condescending statement and should not be taken in a negative connotative way. It is in fact an admiration of our technical skills and abilities.

has osnews gone completely off topic recently ?.

Btw, I did sit through this (http://linux-bangalore.org/2004/schedules/talkdetails.php?talkcode=...).

Quite interesting to see how the Geek definition translates from an American scenario (as a derisive term) to an Indian scenario (alpha-geek status symbol).

Just some boredom filled posts ;)
