Geek Pride

Last night I installed a new hard drive in my old Mac. The old one was on the point of failure and had needed to be reformatted twice in the last six months. I think I should be awarded some sort of geek pride badge… all that digging around in the dusty interior of the Mac and clipping jumpers on various pin positions to indicate the binary notation for particular SCSI IDs made me feel like the techo Slashdot reader I clearly aspire to be. Except, being a washed-up ex-Linux hobbyist, I don’t quite make it.
