What if talking geek *is* a turn on to some people? Andy and I quite
recently had pillow talk about the Eee 900. If anyone thinks that's sad,
you can byte us, 'cause it totally rocks our geektastic micrcosm.
Relationships are just another part of the rich fabric of life, the
threads of which can weave themeslves in at the most unexpected of
places, if you allow them.
Surely socializing at a LUG or other geek meet would serously increase
your chances of finding someone you'd actually have something to talk with
about on a lazy Sunday moring, as compared to the randomized offerings of
a standard Saturday night booze cruise? (Why do I suddenly have the
nagging suspicion that someone, somewhere, has probably formulated an
equation for this?)
Besides, I'm sure I remember a post to this very list from a fellow who
met a lady at an NLUG event and disappeared off into the sunset with her
not long after, rarely to be seen again.
