I'm sure everyone has met the following type of geek:

"Hey, guess what?!! I just ordered a brand new blah blah blah processor blah blah RAM blah 1.21 GIGAWATTS!!!"

I always have trouble mustering up the appropriate level of empathic excitement. Today (and until my new processor and motherboard arrive), I have become that kind of geek. Rather than telling everyone I know the exact specifications of what I bought, I will try to restrain my excitement to just repeatedly checking my Fedex tracking number.
