Geek credit...

When you're a computer geek, you really should be proud and proclaim it to the world.

Almost everyone carries a calculator (check out your cell phone).

Having an RPN calculator shows low level geekdom.

Having a calculator watch shows moderate level geekdom.

Having a calculator you built yourself shows high level geekdom.

Having a RPN calculator watch that you built yourself will make all other geeks bow down before you (with the possible exception of those few who built a nixie tube watch).

I have trouble reading a regular watch.

Perhaps I should learn Polish.


"What time is it?"
"Fourteen."
"What?"
"Either my watch is broken or it is 2:14:14."
"It must be broken, it is dark out."
"Made in Korea."

I am suspicious of any watch that shows the date.

If you don't even know what day this is, you probably don't really need to know the time, either.
