Geekin’ Out

Last night I was at the inaugural meeting of the Bangor Area .NET Developers (BAND). Thank you Eric.

You’re saying, “Roger, you don’t even play an instrument.” You are correct. Neither do I play an literal musical instrument, to fit with the theme, nor do I play a figurative programming instrument. I guess when I started the Monkey Exhibit way back when, I had to…manipulate my own HTML code, but that’s not quite the same. As you can imagine, it was way over my head.

I saw something that could be really cool for website building, but I can’t even tell you the name of it. For some reason my brain wants to say Expressions 2008, but a search for that term didn’t come up with anything familiar. Maybe if I had seen the physical box of the product then I would remember.

After that cool product, my brain rejected any more new information and I am left with a half hour blank spot in my memory. What did I do? What did I hear? Did the government erase some top secret information from my memory that was relayed to us? I think I might have been drooling.

Anyway, plans for the near future are to 1) search for the free Visual Basic (VB) tutorial, 2) bookmark the VB tutorial, 3) watch the 6 hour VB tour so that I can pretend, in a pinch, that I understand something about VB. Maybe, just maybe I can move up in the world from a respectable, if lower paying, position to a geek desk job where I’m not responsible for the employment well-being of multiple other people and I can say what I want when I want.

Long live run-on sentences.

    Nerd, geek doesn’t fit. Someone had to comment!

  2. Roger is a bit of a nerd. Part geek to. I’m trying to bring him over to the geek side. It’s a slow process…

  3. Roger says:

    I am very nerdy. And geeky, too, compared to non-geeks.

    I just hide well behind this athletic physique. 🙂

    Your mirror only covers your head and shoulders doesn’t it?

  5. Jeff says:

    Hey Roger, thanks for the Blog, it showed up in a Google search for the BAND. Microsoft Expression Web is the product you couldn’t remember. See you next month.

  6. Roger says:

    Jeff is the guy who gave the demonstration. This means he has now put me on his list of people to watch out for at BAND meetings.

    At his next presentation I can expect him to repeat the name of the product at least 50 times, just because of me.
