my most recent favorite moment was using Fatwallet to help find a deal on a small camcorder so I could record the day of my daughters birth.

For an MMO, using AHK to tile lots of browser windows on the screen, scroll to see a "buy" button, and clicking the button in each window as fast as possible. The server honored more requests than I had credit for, resulting in me getting more items that I was supposed to. Satisfied with my trick, I shortly thereafter lost interest in the game and stopped playing.

Favorite geeky moment was when I was interviewed for The Times of London for my online Christmas radio station.

For some reason everyone thinks the nerdiest thing I do is use my Titanium Spork from ThinkGeek. It was a gift from my mom

Geeky moment, let's see. Earlier today I met a super cute girl at the gym (Dolphin in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn). while running on the treadmill we talked about Skyrim and Battlefield 3.
When I told her that I thought that women just don't play games like this, she replied " i think theres a little wood elf in all of us."
Suddenly, I felt less bad about burning untold hours in front of my game consoles and PC.

I would assume that being addicted to a computer and the internets would be geeky enough and then some.

I'm a huge Apple fan who carries a TracFone. Sad, but true. I really need the gift card for something much cooler!

Favorite moment: Getting called out of class, as a student in high school, to help the secretaries with the new computers they just got. I was the resident nerd before most knew what computers were...

My geekiest moment happens just about every day as I am the one who is called to fix the computers at work, even though I don't work in IT...

My geekiest moment was when I "surfed the internet" back in the day with my Philips Pocket PC and a proprietary NIC that was wired to my hub. Those were the days...

Random things come to mind. Meticulously hand typing code into my TI-85 calculator so I could play Slot Machine at school. Reading the DOS 5 manual cover to cover. In college hacking the terminal software to 'wardial' till the (always busy) modem picked up. Calling AT&T for my boss to order DSL for her house because she had no clue what any of that was and all she wanted was the internet. A couple years later going to the same person's house to fix the computer that mysteriously quit working right after she clicked something in an email.

I use to convince my dad to go to FedCo so I can play their display model of Intellivision and tank wars. I later got the Apple IIe would sneak to the den to play games like Zork until 3am in the morning, when I was 8 years old during a school night! It was worth the sleep deprivation! I also enjoy the Twilight Zone (the original series), Night Gallery, Star Trek (the original series).
Lately, taking apart hard drives so I can use the strong magnets to hold up my curtains in my bedroom.

The first program I wrote after "Hello World" was a program that used a formula to determine what your vertical leap would need to be, based on your height, calculating your standing reach, in order for you to dunk a basketball. That is still among my favorite blocks of (Apple Basic) code.

My family sent me a DVD set of the first season of "The Big Bang Theory" with a note that said "This reminds us of you and your friends."
I don't know about geekiest moment, I think I'm just perpetually geeky (web developer/business analyst combo).

My geekiest moment is when the vice-principal of an elementary school called my high school looking for me. She needed help with powerpoint.

the funniest moment I can think of is when my uncle's "tech savvy" soon to be son in law recommended draining the reservoir on the water-cooled PC that I had built for him, as any water that got on the mobo could damage it... He wasn't kidding either.

The geekiest moment I can remember (and there are a lot) is the first time I installed memory in my TRS 80 computer. I beleive I was going from 4MB to 8MB of memory for that computer. (Yes, that's MB, no GB - the TRS 80 was one of the first consumer computers and was sold by Radio Shack). I kept reading all the warning about static electricity issues and finally decided I should not be wearing any clothes since they could contribute to static electricity buildup. So, my geek moment is "naked memory upgrade". Glad no one else was around.....BTW - the memory upgrade was successful.

I was sort of accused of fraud by Paypal at the age of 15..(Minimum age was 18).. I was using the PayPal account to make money by playing online video games and making $15-$25 an hour doing so. Paid for my first car with it, a Ford Explorer. Sad thing was my parents had no idea it was going on. I was always confused about where they THOUGHT I made the money to buy my car with.
What an interesting call that was when the Paypal lawyers called.
