I tried to segway into the applestore
(at the opening, yea I'm a GEEKusMaxiumus)

He said in his best Star Wars Gruff Bartender voice
"Get that thing out of my store"
My friend (fellow geek) said "Dude Steve just yelled at you, Now THATS Cool!"

Well as poor snaggy had felt my geek wrath, Someone did have the name, But after enough groveling and butt kissing (on my side, not managements) We found a compromise. I have been Macgeek (well officially anyway) Since 08/06/97 (when I registered the Domain name) (back then I also had the 800# (800-MAC-GEEK) for my fledgling Mac consulting biz as well)

Long ago, and and oh so far away!

OMG I'm quoting the Carpenters now. Im gonna stop.

While that picture was loading (it was s-l-o-w) I was expecting to see a smiling geek on a Segway.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
