Show us your geek cred - a thread

You’re spending this month learning about our Head Geeks in our February Monthly Mission, but we’d like to learn what makes you geek out. Tell us a story about a project, aspirational dream, or just something you fan girl/boy over that shows us what type of geek you are.

TL;DR: tell us you’re a geek without telling us you’re a geek #TheTellMeChallenge.

To earn a chance to win the Arc Star Floating Speaker, answer the prompt above*. To be a good THWACKster, comment on and/or give kudos to your fellow geeks’ contributions.

*Maximum one entry per person. Terms & Conditions apply.

  • I watched "Star Trek: The Animated Series" when it was first broadcast on Saturday mornings.

    I built the original AMT model kits of the USS Enterprise, Klingon and Romulan ships, the three part phaser/communicator/tricorder set, and Spock shooting a snake.  I also built the USS Seaview, and the Flying Sub (not to the same scale), "The Invaders" spaceship, and the AMT "UFO" in glow-in-the-dark plastic.

    I watched "Doctor Who" on channel WOR when they showed the original format half-hour episodes.

    I watched "Blake's 7".

    I watched "Babylon 5", communicated with the creator, J. Michael Straczynski via email, and one of my ideas made it into an episode.

    I still have some 3.5" and even one 5.25" floppy disk, just because.

    I used the first generation of Macs, and even got to try a Lisa.

    I supported an office using OS/2.

    I participated in flame wars on multiple internet groups before most of you were born!
