In light of the fact that I haven't posted any polls lately, I figured I'd post one.

Age has been beated to death, as has how did you get your nick, and so one...

But I don't think we have touched on SO's lately.



Who are you with? Is (s)he a geek, or not? How did you meet? Was (s)he the kind of person you saw yourself with, or was it unexpected?

Forgot one.

Should a mod happen by whilst in a good mood, do you think you could add "Was married" or something to that effect?

A quick look at the numbers makes it clear that two people felt the need to check every box and submit it.

Why? What possible purpose could it have?

My SO is my wife and non- tech . Shows the good and bad of checkboxes. Haven't voted yet. Just got a dog.

More convienient than listing every possible combination.

Still you can do validity checking by summing the totals of the exclusive options (married, seeing someone, and the two not seeing anyones) and subtracting that from the total, dividing the resultant number by the number of exclusive options used, and the result is the number of idiots who felt like messing with the poll.

Perhaps a stupid question, but what is a SO?

Significant Other is a spouse/bf/gf.

Unattached for now, but definitely looking... A tech background would be nice, but discussing code when I got home from programming all day's the last thing I'd want... It'd be nice to be with someone who understands or at least cares about some of it, though.

I would like a g/f soon, I guess I would want her to know about computers, or sports.
