Now, this is a real quiz...

...and so into the fire that is the Geekometer.

And of course, I scored just what you'd expect... (Click to see the official certificate)

This is to certify that jaq has been tested in the fire of the Geek-o-meter and has shown his class in achieving the brilliant Geek Rating of 48%. Accordingly he has been awarded the following accolade...

"Solid, if unimaginative scoring. You probably know enough about computers to get by, though I bet you have to bluff a bit when it comes to talking to your kids/IT department. Pay a bit more attention when others are trying to help you and you might not be such a drain on everyone's time."

My rating...

You are 72% geek

You're on a particularly useless cusp known as "being a bit of a nerd". Nobody really trusts what you say about computers, but at the same time, they keep asking you really annoying questions that they could answer for themselves if they just spent five minutes thinking about it. You also have to spend a lot of time not having a life in order to keep your slightly inadequate skills up to date. You have a choice: work harder and learn more, or give up and start to enjoy life.

Words fail me to describe how hideously, painfully accurate this is.

Half Geek Half Biscuit
I am 50% geek. I loved the way the Geek-O-Meter score slowly filled giving a delightful sense of anticipation then hideous failure when it stopped half way.

Glad I can remember my binary multiplication.

We like that.

What we like even more is your posting, followed by Mary's. Splendid.

Not so impressed by my own miserable score of 66%... Pah!

I found it but Simon worked out how to drive it properly first ;-)

Stuck at 59%
took it three times (different questions each time):
first I was 52%
second 59%
last 59%

Each time I got this as their response:

Is there any better place to be than just above half way? Yes, there is, Mr. Tediously Average! There's nothing so dull as middle-of-the-road mediocrity, and that's you, all right. You've either spent an unhealthy amount of time forcing your inadequate intellect to understand the little you know, or you've settled for knowing the minimum you could get away with, you lazy git.

Stupid javascript doesn't work in Phoenix. Probably just as well.
