Random encounters of the geek kind

  • 18th Feb, 2006 at 6:23 PM

Do you know what's brilliant? When you bump into random people on the street who wear geek paraphernalia. Well, Damian and I were walking out of the Métro a couple of days ago and noticed some distinctive looking dolls hanging from an olive backpack.

"Intel bunny men", we said to ourselves. The owner turned around and I smiled at her and told her she was awesome, as I am wont to do. She noted that she had a Tux button as well.

We got on the bus and she hung out with her boy. Damian and I kept talking about random things when kyotto noticed me. We basically only meet while riding the 80, which is awesome but leaves our friendship up to happenstance.

So do I. It's the details in life that make it charming, yes?

I was riding with thewronghands back from a LinuxChix meeting once, and while we were stopped in a traffic jam we spotted a car with the license plate "APT-GET". I wish I'd had a camera.

Wow! That's even better than this SAAB I found parked outside a restaurant.

I have one of the smaller Intel Bunny Suit men, in orange.

A buddy of mine caught it at a LAN party (one of the LAN ETS parties). He didn't want it, and was more than happy to let me keep it.

Mine is from the Pentium 4 era. I don't recall what processor the card attached to him says, but I think there is a fair chance it would talk about the Pentium 4. This LAN party was 2 or 3 years ago, but the Pentium 4 was still the dominant Intel CPU at the time.
