Default Are you a computer geek?

There are a disproportionately high number of computer literate and computer professional contributors on the Camel I feel. However, there's 'doing it as a dayjob' (like myself) and 'doing it as a religion' (also like myself, sadly). So, now's the time to look into the mirror and ask yourself - are you a geek?

Here's my score, which is rather disappointing in highlighting the emptiness in my artistic existence..., but is not completely geeky, so I can rest easy.

You can click the image to take the test yourself.

You dusted me... but I'm rusty after five years of being just a user.

Hah! You two are totally geeky. I scored a 50, and didn't save my image. And I used to be in IT too. I'd do better on a Latin test...

Mr. Pickles will score a 100.

I've been doing this stuff since high school (1974). The hard part for me was finding a dang ASCII chart to decode the message "49204561742046726F6773".

BTW, here is one of my latest creations I've posted this in another forum and not one response yet. I think people are afraid. I swear, no toes were hurt in the taking of this photo. <LOL>:

I kind of like eating frogs. Well the legs actually. Taste like chicken.

The foot shot is interesting. The toes is kind of scrunchy, but I'm a geek apprently, so I could be wrong about what is good photography.

Could be Hobit feet?

The group here is having a theme day: Toes or facades. I selected toes.
