Q: What is more pathetic than being a geek?
A: A geek-wanna-be.
They are the ones that want to be able to do all the geeky stuff that geeks are always doing, but just do not have what it takes. I guess I have always been one of them.
Imagine using a computer scanner to scan old LP's and then writing software, a kind of a 'digital needle', to actually read it and produce sound. Just coming up with the idea fascinates me. Making it actually work, however, is just magic in my book. Pure magic.
