    Well, you can take solace in the fact that when they get to the final exam for the course and aren't able to look at your code, they'll fail miserably.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I can't really stop them. I occasionally resign myself to the corner PC and turn the screen as far as possible, but it doesn't work very well - I feel slightly guilty. Slightly. Sometimes.

    You know what you shouldn't do, is tell the teacher why you're curled up in the corner hiding from your classmates.

    You are a geek. You can wear that tag with pride, or you can hide it and be ashamed, like any other stereotype categorisation. Would it be so bad being a geek ?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I tell you what is worse : being a girl geek. All my female friends hate computers, sometimes I find boring to hang out with girls. So most of my friends are (male ) programmers but somethimes they under estimate my knowledge or get angry if i know more than them. btw I didn't post in a long time because I am working on php helping a friend on his web.
    Have I crossed the line?

    Yep - a friend of mine introduced me to another fellow who is into programming, and he hesitantly said something like 'so and so is a fellow geek..' - I scoffed at him and said that geek is a badge of identification.

    When I tell some one that I am a programmer I let them know that I'm a computer geek before they can say it. It hurts less that way
