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.

a little observation on the article
by Admiral Big Hat on Tue 7th Dec 2004 19:00 UTC

The author uses the example of the person trying to use a usb hard disk under linux, but neglects to mention that on the whole linux users are some of the least helpful people on earth, until recent times at least, mainly due to lack of knowledge. thats my theroy at least.

what i mean is that when the one person replied "edit your fstab, and mount the drive" he/she said that because they didnt really know the answer to the question and so they, being the uber leet haxors they are, spouted off something they heard one of their more knowledgable friends say.

im not trying to piss anyone off, its just been my observation that, until recently, linux forums were the last place to go for concise and genuine answers.

google first; questions later.
