Geek stuff, sci-fi... Geek is defined by 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.

...bear in mind that we're not along. Some might consider a 'master plumber' a 'geek'. He'll use his greater knowledge to extort money from unsuspecting victims.

It's not quite the same, but it's not a million miles away.
