I had a dream the other night. That my hair grew back and I had long hair like in the 70s. With bell bottoms and a plaid shirt. I miss my hair

Well I got some under my armpit left....maybe we could do a transplant if you don't mind being ginger?

Don't feel stupid, that is actually a good question. It really depends on who you ask and the context of it's use. Kinda similar to the word "Geek" and how it's used.

Nerd is the opposite of Jock
Geek is a name for those who fiddled with stuff found out how it worked and improved on it or made it do things that normal people would not have thought about doing ie: Us

That's what a hacker is, thus the term; to be a hack..

This does illustrate the point though, means different things to different people.

Fair enough. Sounds good to me.
Is it like obsessed , maniac ?
That doesn't really sound right. I always thought that "Nerd" was someone who was into something very technical and had a ton of knowledge and intelligence and that "geek" was someone similar to a nerd but without the knowledge and/or intelligence. Like comparing Bill Nye to Napoleon Dynamite.

Can I call you Grampa?

I'll be 31 soon. First machine for me was a TRS-80 that my dad purchased many years before as the first family PC (and last till a Windows 3.1 came out).

A little surprised I’m only in the 11% demographic. :( Gen-X’ers, where art thou?

First “real PC” was a Packard Bell 486 SX2, all 50MHz of it. I had the obligatory Commedor 64 before that as well. Still can’t hear “Start Me Up” without thinking about Windows 95.

64 today .... almost didn't make it. Saturday was on my roof cutting up a tree that had fallen in recent storm. It was a 14 feet or so from stump to eave, 22' laying flat on roof and about 30' still sticking up in air .... of course none of my strappling boys showed up (22, 26 and 28) to help, so was just me and another 60+'er. So we started from the top, taking chances holding on to the others belt while other used the chainsaw. Then we did the stump to eave part. Finally we tackled the last part laying on perpendicular to the roof slope, starting with all the branches.

So we were left with just the 14" diameter Locust wood (aka ironwood) trunk left on the roof about 22 feet long. Wasn't going anywhere as it wasn't going to roll down slope since it could only roll left and right along the roof. I went down to get a pry bar so we could get it up few inches above roof w/o cutting into shingles. Bar was leaning on the wall and when I grabbed it, I heard thunder. My buddy had pushed a 4" wide slat of 1/2" plywood into a small opening under the log to use as leverage point and it started rolling ... I ran / dove outta the way and that 1,400 pound log just missed me. So what does this have to do with nerds ? Well my wife had texted / guilt-shamed the kids after it happened. Within next 15 minutes all three kids sent me the same text.... one had flown to Maine, other was upstate NY and third was playing a D & D like card / board game about 15 miles away, so i don't think they coordinated, but all 3 texts had just 2 words.... the same 2 words. Now that is a typical "nerd response". They said:

"Valar Marghulis" ... and since this is a pretty nerdy crowd, I expect 3/4 won't have to use google to translate.

For reference, all three boys built their 1st PC before they were 10 and most of their friends, neighbors. HS and collage buds, work buddies etc had their PCs built on my workbench or what my wife likes to call "the dining room table" she really hates the giant, grounded Modmat "table cloth"

Moving on, the meaning of the term has changed over the years with many dictionaries listing something like: "an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person , especially one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits ...examples computer nerd / math nerd". In recent years it's become more of a badge of honor, someone who is technically adept with computers . In 1995 Scott Adams, author of Dilbert Comic Strip write the best article on the subject that I have ever read, calling neds the "Sex Symbols of the 90s". Enjoy the chuckles

My favorite lines regarding nerd's sex appeal ...

"I think it's a Darwinian thing. We're attracted to the people who have the best ability to survive and thrive. In the old days it was important to be able to run down an antelope and kill it with a single blow to the forehead. But that skill is becoming less important every year. Now all that matters is if you can install your own Ethernet card without having to call tech support and confess your inadequacies to a stranger whose best career option is to work in tech support." ... "It's also well established that computer users are better lovers. I know because I heard an actual anecdote from someone who knew a woman who married a computer user and they reportedly had sex many times. I realize this isn't statistically valid, but you have to admit it's the most persuasive thing I've written so far. "

I used to have fun changing what the LEDS used to say by playing with the jumpers on the rear of the display once I had it saying 666 and the PC was named the Beast

Hi, as I'm feeling nostalgic, and as for the 70's well a few years ago I retired through ill health and became a hippy again, though the hair is rather more sparse than it was back then. However in this early morning fit of computing nostalgia I decided to post a picture of the first computer I ever got paid to program. Sadly i couldn't find one so instead is I will have to make do with a link to a page describing a system identical (though in the USA) which was the second I got to program (in CORAL66 and assembly language) which due to the official secrets act one couldn't photograph or get a camera on sight for that matter. Welcome to the wonderful world of quadruple 9020D's a system so big that when it was installed in West Drayton, they had to put the machine in first and the roof on afterwards. Sadly the photos don't really give the scale but enjoy :-
