My Favorite Nerd Memory

… has got to be sneaking into a computer lab at the University of Manitoba in highschool (around ’95 or ’96) with a couple of friends to play Warcraft II:Tides of Darkness over their IPX network.

The worst part was, because the machines were ghosted (or some archiac version of ghost) on boot up, we had to do a fresh install of the game everytime. Though this did do a great job of covering our tracks when we left.



I just made the best nerd joke ever.

My wife said “…go fer it.”

To which I replied “I think I’ll use Veronica.”
