How many hours per day do you spend on geekly activities?

Computer "life"
Computer games
Games console
AD&D
Watching Science Fiction
Polishing your calculator
Soldering stuff
Fidgeting nervously at a party

4? 8? 16? 25?

Well. let's see - I work 7+ hours a day in an IT dept., often doing geeky things - I think that about covers it. When I'm not doing geeky things at work, I'm probably making up for that time later in the day...
Then again, there are days like today, when I take a break from geeky pursuits, but of course, I'm posting here, aren't I?

P.S. Oh yeah, and it took me 5 mins to reply to this...unsolicited - oh, what a geek that makes me :-/ (unsure how good that is, and I figure Red won't let me live this one down).

8 hours in IT
2 hours in Cognitive Lab
4 hours online/doing homework

Hmm, looks like about 14 for me.

How many hours per day do you spend on geekly activities? -- Well, I sleep about 7 hours/day, and do things like brush my teeth and make food. Since it's difficult to do those things and use a keyboard at the same time, that leaves about 15-16 hours for geek "life".

Computer "life" -- see above
Computer games -- Rarely play games, actually.
Games console - None, though I used to play a mean Mario Bros. III back in the day.
AD&D -- 0
Watching Science Fiction -- 2-3
Polishing your calculator -- Please!
Soldering stuff -- I don't do hardware.
Fidgeting nervously at a party -- Don't go to parties (unless you count IRC).

Ah, come now Snaggy, we all know you can out class us in the amount of time you spend in geekly persuits, it's obvious in the existance of GC [Razz]

Though I get the feeling Nitro can outclass you, hehe [Big Grin]

Hmmm.

I think that can be summed up with my geek code:

-----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK-----
Version: 3.1 GCS
d++ s: a-- C++++ UBLAIS++++$ P+++ L+++ E--- W++ N++ o K-- w-- O++ M+++ V+ PS+ PE Y++ PGP t+ 5- X- R* tv-- b+++ DI-- D+++ G+ e+>+++ h* r+++ y?
------END GEEK CODE BLOCK------

So, basically, 21 hours a day. Gotta sleep sometime!!

An operating system should be like a light switch... simple, effective, easy to use, and designed for everyone.

Yes, I do, and I was tempted to mention it, but didn't. On this note, geeky as I am, would, *ahem*, anyone care to make a GeekCulture (TM) Code CGI generator? Maybe I'll just print out the rules, and write up my GC Code over lunch sometime.

As I see it, it would just be a form with a pop-up menu for each options, and the outputs from each menu would be strung together. Well, a little more complicated than this, I see (for $ etc), but anyhow.

While I can do this,
i) I thought you were the one who needed stuff to do at work during the day [Wink] and
ii) is this actually the final structure for the code? There were a lot of other ideas and things being planned – I don't know where this stuff stands now, and how it would affect the CGI.

Hm... I'll have a go anyhow.

[Edit: okay - maybe not - looks like the GCC is in for a big overhaul...]

Welcome to the honored ranks of the superfans, littlefish. It's great to have you here.

As far as how much time I spend on geeky activities, let's just say that upon moving in to my new place Josh and I separated our books in to fiction and non-fiction, then alphabatized by author before going to play Riven and Exile for a few hours. [Big Grin]

It's not too bad to be unemployed! [crazy]
