So I'm in Nerd training

So I have spent the last couple of days thinking by going into what I would call Computer Nerd training... complete with the teenage hormones that most geeks have since they start their training when in middle and high school. (though it's usually not the type of hormones I had... I was as ill as a hornet. Cow and my parents got the brunt of it... Poor Cow has been hugged almost out of his normal shape)

Anyway, I spent the last two days adding a new computer to my already unimpressive arsenal of computers. I raided four Windows 95 computers for parts and made it so that one old HP computer has 160 MB of memory. Whether you consider it bad or good, I seem to be failing at one part of this training... I Can't figure out how to make my computer take a slave drive. I have to admit, even though I may act nerd-ish, I regard myself as a geek. What's the difference?

Nerd:
More Math based person, logical, socially awkward due to this way of thinking scientifically or mathematically, and D and D people

Nerd Cow

Loves to work with computers, writes code for the fun of it, Engineer type.
Geek:
More of a fantasy based person (SciFi conventions, the one who wear costumes), Socially awkward due to the fact that they like Geeky stuff

Princess Cow-ienty (Sailor Moon Cow!)


They love to use the stuff that Nerds make, but may not know how more in-depth they do to make it. Fantasy writer, Website and software designers.

That's why I think that a lot of Nerd come from Geeks. The best example I can think of is "How William Shatner Changed the world" (Oh yes I am going there). This show describe how a lot of inventions that were described on Star Trek became inspiration for inventors of today. Like these kids went from being kids from being Geeks watching this, turning into Nerd with their love of math... Yeah ok. It's bad, but I think that Nerds and Geeks can be the same, or only one, but they are always linked.

So back on point. while learning this information, I can't figure out to make a slave drive out of this. If you could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Plus I want to become a Nerd. Sort of... I'm still not sure about the pocket protecters.






P.S. The definitions are based on how I see Geek vs. Nerd.

I like to think of myself as an all around loser. I prefer to be general purpose.

If you need to talk about anything, you can call me. Don't worry about bothering me.

Bill Gates is a nerd.

Steve Jobs is a geek.

That's the difference.

I think you make it a slave by pulling the jumper off completely.

Someday when I grow up, I hope to be a dork. Or before, since it is unlikely I will ever grow up.
