Nerd love

This post is brought to you by a crushing sense of guilt. I haven’t blogged here for ages. AGES. I just haven’t made the time (note the honesty there: I could have had the time).

I’ll slip in the news that I have dropped out of my physics course. It was just too much to cope with at the moment. I don’t feel guilty; I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I’ll pick it up again when I’m in a position to do the course, and myself, justice.

Anyway: it’s Easter, and it’s April Fools’ Day, so here’s a little something from one nerd to lovers everywhere. If you’re going to propose, do it in style. Or memorably. Or nerdily.

How nerds propose: an academic paper.

Will you consent to an indefinite two-body interaction?


Addendum to previous

Having got all excited about the fact that an ego-boostingly high number of you darling readers arrived at my blog yesterday, I had a wee look at the search terms. Just for shits and giggles.

Could the person who searched for “fx-9750g hack” please stand up.

Why, for the love of all that is holy, would you want to hack a calculator?

Please note: I am not taking the piss. I actually want to know.

*Ten minutes later, on return from a Google session*

I have had revealed to me a strange new world; a world where grown men spend their time on such fetish sites as casiocalc.org and omnimaga.org. Here, they talk about calculator emulators, the calculator equivalent of Easter eggs, and overclocking the calculator.

No, really – overclocking the calculator.

I’m a girl geek, and proud of it. But I feel, somehow, dirty. And not in a good way.
