GETMEOUTTAHERE!

Oh to be stuck with newbie geeks.

I was with a bunch of them in a project "war-room" and learned some shocking facts like:

"Halo", a game that's been around since at least 1997, was described as an "old classic game".

Not one of them had ever used a command prompt.

When an informal vote was taken to decide the music selection for the war-room, "dance music" won. DANCE MUSIC! When did geeks ever want to dance?

It is perfectly ok to post your "old geezer" comments now.

from the sound of it, looks like they were just "newbies" guising as "geeks".

When did geeks ever want to dance? Richard Stallman did, to the consternation of the suits...

I'm not going to say that. Recently, I've been hanging out a lot with, um, older people. My latest acquisition is a 33 year old guy who is totally a scottish, male version of me.

So yeah, we don't care about age anymore. It is all about the love, man.

Scout: No, it's all about the kilt, man.

Rahul: RMS dancing must have been an AWFUL sight.
