Okay we are all geeks here what is the 'geekiest' thing you have? 

I saw the numberplate PCMCA today and thought that was rather geeky but then noticed it was next to Mauricio's car, which explains it. 

Whats the 'geekiest' thing I have...
As an old geek item; I would say my old (really old) glasses - considering they look straight out of revenge of the nerds and with a correction of -15'ish it makes them look just that much geekier.

Not sure about a modern geek item; most of what I have is pretty common these days... Maybe my facebook fan pages which total about 150,000 fans could be up there.

So what about you guys/gals?

I'm not sure about the geekiest thing I actually own, but I have always really wanted to get my hands on one of those caps with the propeller on top.

there are so many levels of geek these days. the geekiest modern thing i can think of right now would have to be that virtual world - second life?

as for retro geek, i still have an 8" floppy disk with RPG code i wrote stored on it... (I have no way to actually ready it though)

The geekiest thing I wish I still had was my first mobile phone - the Motorola brick, (before I upgraded it to a slimline brick).

The stupidest geeky thing I ever bought was an old Sequent 6 CPU server. It was huge! I bought it because it was cheap and exactly the same as a fiendishly expensive  NCR server I selected & bought on behalf of one of my clients many years ago. I had this vague idea that I could sell hosted services off it or something. (This was about 10 years ago now.)

 
I guess the "commonly recognised as geeky"est t thing I have right now is my HTC Magic android phone (bought 2nd hand off trademe). 

Other  than the more obtuse geeky things I have which include:

a multimeter (just used to check the charge on batteries)
a cable tester
an earth strap
lots of old IP phones, and a few current ones
an old PC server
old Palm Treo mobile phones
etc etc


 




kind regards Andrew TD

Doesn't that mean it 's all that what you wanted from this thread. Obscure and Geeky certainly fit the bill in my books.

I can't think of any truly geeky things i own

The HDHomeRun we have here is a geeky thing - try explaining even to a Home Theatre expert that you can have your "DVB-T in the LAN for any PC in your network" and they go "what?"

I have a copy of OS/2 Warp on floppy in the original packaging.
I always intended to mount it in a wall cabinet with a notice "In case of emergency, break glass".
But I never got round to it.
However this is more sad than geeky :-(
