10 Hints you were at a GEEK New Year's Eve party....

9. Countdown clock had 12 significant digits after the decimal.
8. The ice bucket was in the shape of Bender's head.
7. Started 24 hours early to allow time for hacking giant TVs in Times Square.

4. Instead of party hats, everyone had a blinking RFID tag.
3. Mac people and PC people had separate rooms at party.

Clock accurate to 12 sif-fig's after the decimal? If the time is in binary or some other non-base-ten system, then it really is a geek party.

Running your computer's time pieces directly off the atomic clock works >:-D
I wish I had an atomic clock. Then nobody could argue about my clock being wrong ever again!

Hehe.... What about watching Stargate all night?
Goodhart (author)  KentsOkay8 years ago
Ah yes, just as there are rooms for MACs and PC users, there will be also for Stargate/Atlantis and Battle Star watchers.... ;-)
Excellent, not that the BSG peeple and SG fans dont get along but the mac folks should go show the pc users what a computer should be like....
If a Mac is what a computer should be like, then I for one am a Luddite.

You can't be a Luddite. You're using a computer right now, and all of your I'bles-related discissions are technology-related. All your statement shows is that you've taken one of the possible absurdly extreme positions in a religious discussion.

i have noticed a trend at office partys worth mentionning: the engineers will arrive exactly when it starts, or never. the engineers will scowl with disbeleif if the bartender is not set up in time for the venu the accounts will arrive fashionably late the engineers will wonder why anyone would be late
We have a saying around my workplace: "There comes a time in every project, when you must shoot the engineer, and actually get something accomplished!"
