Black T-shirt with a random funny saying on the front and the <DANIWEB> logo on the back (white ink). We're looking for some quotes. Think funny, geek, tech, hacker, gaming, programming... something along those lines. Here is what we have so far: das geek. talk techie to me I eat spyware for breakfast got trojans? hackr Strange game--the only winning move is not to play.

[ATTACH=RIGHT]22424[/ATTACH]When it comes to robotic pets I still have my heart set on one day owning a Sony AIBO as I always wanted one when they arrived on the geek scene, but could never justify the cost. The Desk Pet TankBot is no AIBO; for a start it's a tank and not a dog, it's a lot smaller and far less intelligent no matter what the packaging blurb tells you. Oh, and it's nowhere near as cute either. But then again, a second hand AIBO (should you be able to find one for sale in good working condition) is going …

Basically the time old question of who would win. Just decided to put a very geeky twist to it. Just looking to see if people think C++ is better/worse then C :icon_lol:

[ATTACH=right]21490[/ATTACH]Imagine lining up 57.5 billion Apple iPads to build a wall measuring about 4000 miles long and 60 feet high. To put that into perspective, think of the Great Wall of China cloned and stacked on one top of the other, that's how big we are talking here folks. Now imagine all of those iPads stuffed choc-a-bloc with data. 1.8 zettabytes (or 1 billion terabytes if you prefer) of it to be precise. That, somewhat incredulously, is the amount of data that will be created globally just this year according to the new IDC Digital Universe study '[URL="http://www.emc.com/collateral/analyst-reports/idc-extracting-value-from-chaos-ar.pdf"]Extracting Value from …

Okay, I suspect this may be a marginal sort of post here, but maybe folks won't mind too much. I won't be offended if it's deleted, though - if it breaks some rule or other, it should go away, because we don't want to break rules. Anway. People who are reading this site might think that the guy who started the [URL="http://www.sdchessacademy.com/"]San Diego Chess Academy[/URL] is a pretty good egg - here's a guy who's getting kids playing chess, which as we all know is a gateway drug to geekdom. Well, this guy, Dave Melrose, is apparently in pretty bad …

I have [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story220053.html"]written before[/URL] about child geeks, such as M. Lavinashree from Pakistan who passed her Microsoft Certified Professional exam at the age nine. At the time of writing she was busy studying for the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer exams. However, I think I may have stumbled on an even bigger, or should that be smaller, child ubergeek. Marko Calasan, from Macedonia, is also just nine years old and also pretty keen on Microsoft certifications. So keen, in fact, that he already has four of the things! According to an interview published at [URL="http://www.networkworld.com/slideshows/2010/020510-marko.html"]Network World[/URL] young Marko is studying for …

Just how much of a geek are you? Do you know who Sergey Brin is? Can you solve a Rubik's Cube, in under five minutes? Do you know the value of Pi beyond 3.14? Would you spend a small fortune to get [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4607.html"]satnav on your mobile[/URL]? Or maybe strap a large sucker to your thigh to hold your iPhone in place when sitting down in public? I did not make that last one up, honest. There really is a company which is marketing an iPhone accessory which is, essentially, just a large sucker cup attached to some velcro which straps …

There are not too many times when one gets to connect the former Hollywood action hero and current Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, with the shrine to geekdom that is the UK Museum of Computing. So when one comes up you really do have to grab it and run. The connection being a famous Schwarzenegger quote. No, not "Gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman" or even "It's simple, if it jiggles, it's fat." I was thinking more of that classic Terminator line "I'll be back." It was a little under a year ago …

A recent survey reckoned that, here in the UK at least, while 45 percent of the working population is female only 21 percent of the IT industry workforce can say the same. And this number seems to be falling, rather than increasing, year on year. I suspect, however, that the number of women taking part in the Miss Universe beauty competition who also work in IT would be an even smaller figure. Indeed, I would have guessed at a big fat, or rather small and skinny, zero. But that was until I heard about geek girl Sophie Johnson.

Did anyone else get just a wee zing of excitement at 11.30pm (GMT) last night? I will admit to raising my glass and downing a large Jim Beam Black in order to celebrate the fact that UNIX Time had hit 123 billion seconds. OK, so I am a geek, what can I say? Other than, perhaps, I was most certainly not alone. Indeed, [URL="http://www.1234567890day.com/"]UNIX Epoch Time parties[/URL] were springing up all over the planet, it would seem, in order to celebrate that milestone. What bloody milestone you might be wondering, and the answer is also a little geeky. You see …

Barack Obama is the very definition of an Internet politico-geek, not least as I just invented the term. However, there is no denying that the President-Elect of the US has understood the power of the Internet, the power of social networking, better than any other political candidate for high office. His application of that understanding helped drive his campaign, and ultimately Obama himself, all the way to the White House. From appearing in [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/21171/532/"]Xbox 360 games[/URL] to developing an [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/20985/53/"]iPhone Obama application[/URL], the campaign has been geeky all the way. It has [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2666.html"]used Twitter[/URL] and taunted [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/20618/53/"]Lamer McCain.[/URL] But now …

Microsoft's patch-the-patch policy and practice has just rubbed a hole in their own breeches that they need to patch! First, the snafu over WGA (which supposedly just wants to make sure you have a legitimate copy of Windows before you are allowed to update or get other cool stuff for the OS). Now there is this thing with one of the recent patches that some know-it-all says can "put the nation's critical infrastructure at risk". What? Critical Infrastructure? Risk? Nation, for crying out loud? I guess we're now saying Microsoft is going to bring the country to its knees. I …
