My officemate recently branded me as such.  We were testing an open source project management software (NetOffice) that our IT guy tweaked to suit our operations.  It took me less than 5 minutes to figure out an action that stumped my officemate for a day.  I don’t think it was entirely geekiness though.  It was more like curiosity and experimentation.  Since we were still testing the software, I wasn’t afraid to click on any button just to see what would happen.  That’s exactly what I did and I figured it out.  In fact, when he asked me to show him how to do it, I momentarily forgot since I had tried many other things since then.  Haha!

Moral of the story:  Don’t be afraid of technology, especially if you’re at the testing stage.  Your computer won’t explode if you click on the wrong button.  Now, if you mess with the wiring… 😉  If you happen to damage the system…oh well, that’s why there are technical people, heehee! 😀

However, I think my officemate no longer thinks I’m a geek.  You see, I had to ask him something as simple as how to create a shared folder.  I’m really lost around Windows, and I’m not that eager to find my footing.  After all, I’m only using it in the office and I just use basic applications.  Come to think of it, our server is Linux.  Wonder why our PCs are still Windows?  I’d love to learn a new OS.  Then I could confirm if I’m truly a bone-deep Macgirl because right now nothing has shaken that yet.
