    He`s obviously a Blizzard tech watching the support forums while he unplugs the game server link.

    He loves his job because they let him do mediocre work. I managed a server lab support team for a few years. I never would have allowed such sloppy cable management. Oh crap, was this a trap to see who on IAB is a geek?

    If it is, you failed. You are most definitely not a geek. A geek`s cabling is always sloppy as hell. Only management suits want neat cables.

    That`s messy cabling, and no that is not Mike Myers, nor his stunt double nor anyone that resembles Mike Myers.

    You caught me. I`m not really a geek. I was too lazy for college. Computers were an easy path. I definitely wasn`t a management suit though. I was fun party boss - just expected things done correctly so we wouldn`t have to waste time doing things over (sloppy cabling with no color code leads to so much needless work and wasted time down the road).

    I was just messing with ya. I get yelled at for being messy by my boss all the time. (I`m not a computer geek. More of a communications geek.) I always tell him that as long as things are jumbled and undocumented, he can`t afford to get rid of me.

    The worst is when I come up on my own work a year or so later and can`t figure out what I was thinking when I did it the first time. Recently I came upon an unlabeled switch that I had screwed into the side of a distribution block. I distinctly remembered putting in the switch, but for the life of me I couldn`t figure out what would happen if I threw it.

    Is nerd even an insult any more? I`m proud when someone calls me a nerd.
