Sometimes it’s not enough that you own a lot of computers that you use on a daily basis. You have to support it with a multitude of other gadgets and gizmos to make sure what you own doesn’t die on you when you most need them. Us geeks have our own problems to face when dealing with the technology we so crave as a solution to our initial problems. Non-geeks say that these problems are unnecessary and wasteful. In a way, it’s hard to argue otherwise, but as I’ve said many times before, it’s never what we own that makes us geeks. It’s what we do and how we do it that defines us as geeks.
Regardless of what we own and crave for, our arsenal and firepower doesn’t exist in the material world. It was always our ingenuity and passion that makes us who we are. Of course, that doesn’t mean that we can’t use that same ingenuity and creativity to earn ourselves bleeding edge technology every now and again. After all, even us geeks need to have our own fun. Why not have it that we have fun every single day, for the rest of our lives?
