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.

I totally agree with the points made toward users who know little or nothing about computers.

To: When someone replies "RTFM".
Though I don't agree with that kind of reply --I'm usually the one giving the short answers (...edit fstab).-- it's almost always directed at the person who has decided to take the time to learn something new but now wants others to hold their hand through the whole process. It's not so much that he doesn't know, its that he doesn't take the time to figure it out on his own. Which would be the reason to take up the project in the first place.
