Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    You are looking at your PC monitor. The progress bar is half coloured in and says "estimated time until complete is 3 minutes". What do you do?
    • A. 

      Have a chat and maybe play solitare. It may take a while - but so what - its all good fun.

    • B. 

      Wait patiently for 3 minutes.

    • C. 

      The same as I did yesterday, the day before and probably tomorrow. Use that time to think about how my life is fading away like magnetic particles on an old hard drive.

    • D. 

      Boil an egg - that takes exactly 3 minutes so I can use this accurate progress bar as a guide.

  • 2. 
    You read on Digg that some science dudes have found a way to prove that 'phasers' (as seen on Star Trek) could now be possible to make. What do you think about that then?
    • A. 

      I think that gives me an excuse to search around Digg for the rest of the day (plus maybe even Technorati) and leave comments on the many blog posts already written about it.

    • B. 

      Ignore it. They have been saying that for years. Sounds a bit dangerous anyway.

    • C. 

      Cool. Check it out quick. Then play a facebook game where you can phaser your friends.

    • D. 

      Is a phaser something you can curl your hair with?

  • 3. 
    Someone attractive starts to work at a desk across the way from you, but just out of sight. What do you do?
    • A. 

      Realise that they are probably getting bothered by all my fellow nerds so go over and talk about fashion. Attractive people like that kind of thing - or so I read on a forum.

    • B. 

      Wait. As I am an attractive person they will come and find me.

    • C. 

      Send her links to blog posts on top 5 reasons why nerds and geeks are cool. That should work. Plus, obviously, make comments on their likeness to some of the fit ones from Dead or Alive. They like it when you do that.

    • D. 

      Tell them about the health and safety policy first! That's just being sensible.

  • 4. 
    The sales guy who supplies the memory for all the PCs has added you on facebook. But you don't really know them that well. What should you do?
    • A. 

      I don't have facebook. I was concerned about the privacy rules in their terms and conditions when I read them.

    • B. 

      Add them. It is about being social after all.

    • C. 

      I think this needs a lot of consideration. I leave some messages on forums to see what the new netiquette is around this.

    • D. 

      Just add them. Maybe I can find out first about the new solid state drives they have - or even the cool looking carbon nanotubes. Result!

  • 5. 
    It is a Sunday. What are you doing?
    • A. 

      Having a bit of fun checking out cool stuff like Mr Vista and cheeky post-modern things like that.

    • B. 

      The back ups of my home machine.

    • C. 

      Chilling with mates :)

    • D. 

      Mr Vista. Again! When will it end???
