This led to a discussion of other signs I might be a geek, as if the two engineering degrees were not enough.
Another sign is the picture with this entry. I was watching tv and stumbled across HDnet running a test pattern. This test pattern is important because you can use it to check the calibration of a high definition tv. I decided to record the six minute test pattern, so that I would always have it.
Finally, I used the internet to find a new telephone number for the fine folks at XM when I was having trouble with their customer service. I was on the phone 47 minutes the first time and that call did no good. I took ten minutes, searched the internet, and found a new number for XM. I used the new telephone number to call and make the changes I needed in about five minutes. For you liberal arts majors, I saved 32 minutes!
Mrs. Alphageek has not yet wiped that strange look off of her face. I wonder what look she will have after reading this article?
