Sex toys.... ok not really... gadgets... move along, no sex here

Hello, my name is 'postingnick' and I am a geek....

This is a geeky post, beware, don't read on if you hate guys and their gadgets. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I have gadgets.. gobs and gobs of gadgets...

Why do I keep getting them? And how the hell do I keep track of all the cords and adapters that go with each?

Some of the gadgety things I have picked up over the last few years.....

An original Ipod - bought from a guy that was upgrading a couple years ago. Its nice but there is no native interface with PC's - so I have to buy additional software to get it to talk to my XP machines.

A Sony Discman - uses mini-discs - and was bought so I could try bootlegging my fav band - of course as soon as I got it they started releasing their live shows themselves so it became a moot point - lol (and btw - the band was ok with bootlegging as long as you were not trying to profit - and I wasn't). Bought it on ebay used.

A personal video player - a very cool little video/mp3 player that I picked up on clearance somewhere on the net - I have a 500meg card in it and it will play and record videos (has an A/V input), mp3's, and you can just display images if you like - or a combintion of all three.

A mini hard drive to usb external case/adapter so I can pull out my old laptop hard drives and plug them into newer computers. Was something like $10 from an online store.

A full size IDE hard drive to usb adapter (no case) - so I can connect full size hard drives to pc's in the same way. Another cheap buy online.

Lastly webcams.... I have 5 or more, not that I use them now... For example I have a color connectix web cam that I bought for $200 - thats right $200 bucks - and I don't think it works with XP - I bought is when '95 was the latest and greatest OS. All the others are 'usb' cameras that I bought with rebates over the years. Why do I keep picking these webcams up? Why why why!?!?!

The biggest problem will all of these gadgets is that I am lousy at keeping track of all the parts - and they all have 'lil extra parts or adapters.....

And that is my vent for the day, because I spent a good hour last night trying to track down all of these items and their various parts...

God Iam a geek!!!! I mean I am so much of a geek that I am writing about my geekyness on a sex site.

Honestly though, I have my geekyness under control... really....

Wanna see my 8-track tape collection (about 250 tapes) complete with not only three 8-track players but one that player/recorder, recording on blank 8-tracks? Yeah I had to learn to fix them myself ... they tend to laugh at you when you drag this kinda stuff into the repair shop.

LOL, Dirty! I was going to ask him if he wanted to see my 8tracks.
I still have a Tandy computer in my closet. I found the Atari in the attic, I put it in the basement to go with the Albums. The other day my daughter said "Cookie" like cookie monster (keep in mind she's 19). She reminded me of her "cookie monster puppet" in her closet. I know not a gadget but it made me think of you and your post.

Oh don't make me even go there on the old gadgets I have... I have 2 atari's - and I told a friend not to throw out the TRS-80 she thinks she has in her garage...... I will say I never had an 8-track - not that they weren't around, I just never had one. That would be very cool to have a recorder for one Dirty.

Green - Have you tried that atari lately? I played an atari collection that was made for the dreamcast a few months ago (heck dreamcast is old too) - my attention for each game lasted 30 seconds (except warlords - that was still fun).

And as I type this I am still looking for the AC adapters for all these gadgets.... I stand corrected, I have six working webcams (Connecticx Color - printer port connection, 3com HomeConnect, Veo Stingray, Cool-iCam, Ezonics, and a Dlink).. and my original b/w connectix cam that stopped working but I can't seem to part with <sniff>.....

Geeks are cool, and make good lovers too! I have my own personal geek and I know it to be true! And I have 4 computers, 2 PDAs and miscellaneous gadgets myself. Girls make good geeks too!
Long live we all!

Remember the movie "Revenge of the Nerds"? Nerds make the best lovers becuase Jocks always think about sports, and Nerds always think about sex.

Candy, I just had a flashback to Freshman Logic (eyes roll back in my head)...

Mark, WTF - how can you say we ex-jocks don't think about sex???????

I'm just not a pack rat. When cassette tapes replaced 8 tracks, I upgraded and had a garage sale. Same thing when CDs came along. I like geeks and nerds (hate the labels though). Who would I call when my technology breaks down?
