I prefer the more modern definitions of geek;
wikipedia B)

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

I hope we're not talking about the original definition of Geek! :blink:

"a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting acts, as biting off the head of a live chicken." - Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2010.

Oh, a geek makes a high tech solution that is useful and works. 🙂
A nerd makes a stupid high tech solution for a non-existing problem that makes everything it touches worse. :blush:

So celebrate your geekdom and have fun playing with your high tech toys. B)

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Geeky but cool, but if a tree never falls in a forest will you hear it? 😉

I just wrote a little script that checks the software update page for the GC every hour to see if it has changed. Does that make me a geek or a nerd ?
