Blake : found this extremely helpful:
Clint : nice
Clint : I’ll have to bookmark this in case I ever switch back to Textmate
Blake : haha
Blake : still in Vim?
Clint : yes
Clint : LOVE it
Blake : nerd
Blake : ;)
Clint : It’s pronounced “geek”, du-mass
Blake : no, geek’s like star wars and role playing games… nerds do extra efficient commandline nerd crap
Clint : Really? So playing D&D is geeky and not nerdy?
Blake : yeah, nerdy is smart and technical
Blake : geeky is socially awkward and obsessive about the aforementioned geeky things
Clint : I must be a rare hybrid than. All their strengths, none of their weaknesses.
Blake : geeks might even call you “day-walker”
Blake : ;)
Clint : HAH
Clint : nice
Blake : yeah, i’m REALLY proud of that one
Blake : might print this convo out and frame it
Clint : I’m blogging this
Blake : haha, awesome
