50 skills every geek needs!

Recommended Posts

The TEST for every geek to take and see how you fair?

 

I am ashamed to say that I fell into the 11-20 range, but I will not divulge what I did and didn't get right.

 

Now go on, take the test, have laugh at yourself, and the questions.... (some are a bit noobish, and if you cant get Q1 and 2... or 45 then leave forever!)

 

Just say what range you got in... and what you found funny about it. Personally I love the label for getting 50/50.

41-49: You wear Linux shirts, argue about the merits of AJAX on forums and build custom handheld retro gaming consoles for fun.

 

43 to be exact. and that description isnt far off, except for the AJAX part.

I just scraped into:

21-30: You play a lot of video games and read a lot of blogs, but that's about as far as your geek cred goes.

 

Yay. And neither of those is true!

31-40: You went to computer camp when you were a kid and sort of wish you were Japanese.

 

Is it sad i was hoping for a better score?

So uh yeah.

According to the link, you should have got 50 :)

31-40 ... just.

 

Would have been well in there if there were questions about dealing with wounds from sharp metal edges, electrocution or burns.

I can't even find the friggin' 'Hit the jump to find out' button/link/url to launch the stupid test...

 

I want to prove my geekness

So uh yeah.

I have a brother with AS, but he is no expert with computers or anything for that matter. And also rather annoying because of it.

 

After having read information on it, I too can notice some ways that I am, that may describe me as being a person with AS, being that some have varying behaviors. Unfortunately though, I cannot code my own Linux variants... or become accustom to things like that, that a person with AS may have.

 

I think I will take the test again.

It's that big word called TEST in caps up the top, which is underlined and in a slight green color.

 

:P

 

I re-took the test, and although somethings I have not done, Im sure that I could easily... so now Im in the 21-30 range... yey for me.

You are such a geek that pen and paper didn't even factor into your logic.

 

I think it's supposed to be a read and keep marks yourself as opposed to a proper geek test.

 

Geek test indeed - who uses pen and paper these days.

40 :D

 

I would have scored higher if I'd opened my arse to the mighty apple demons for a raping and bought either an ipod or iphone.

Hmmm . . .well .. . not quite.

 

I've never been to computer camp.

 

I've lived with Japanese people and do not want to be one of them.

Like above, I think i would've scored higher had I had huge expendible income to buy a lot of the crap mentioned.

 

And even if I was loaded, I'd still probably buy something else instead of an iPod/iPhone.

 

My score was pretty low, because for a geek test, I didn't think it was hugely geeky.

 

And what's with #24? 'sif date someone who doesn't want to watch porn with you.

 

And then there are the ones that are a bit too specific, which depending on how literate and pedantic the quiz taker is, could yield a yes for one person, and a no for others. For example, I've calibrated a 5.1 surround system, but no ta 7.1. Some people would go "close enough" and others would say "no". Or someone who's ripped to XviD, but not DivX, as another potential example.

 

(And yes, I got a score i nthe range of 11-20.)
