Wow, I don't know why, but 49% are more nerdy, and 51% are less nerdy. Hmmm. I didn't think I was that much of a nerd. I do spend alot of time at home, and am disabled so I very rarely go out. I read alot on the internet about keyboards etc since I play keys. Whatever. Being in the middle ain't bad right?

You know you are a nerd when you visit Wikipedia for an article on a Nuclear Power Plant, and you end up with 7 tabs in your browser ranging from Genetically Modified Foods to the Rules of Cricket

You're not in the 2010s until you get a Mac.
So I'm an Apple fanboy, what can I say?

On a side-note, when I was going through stuff in my school's old computer lab (I work for the tech department over the summers) I found "The Microsoft Office." I don't remember the copyright date, but I do remember that it required 1mb RAM. LOL!
