General geekery or rather the lack of it

I’ve been reading alot on teh web these last few days. I always thought of myself as a bit of a geek until I started reading Wired’s Geek Dad blog and Wil Wheaton of Star Trek fame’s blog.

Hell even my geek code looks crap.

In saying that though the things I used to do that made me a geek I’ll hopefully be able to get the boys enrolled in over the next 5-6 years. Lego building of the frustratingly precise kind, roleplaying of the dungeons and dragons flavour and computers in general. Reading these blogs have gave me so many good ideas that I really do need to write them down somewhere that I’ll be able to find them in the years to come as give it a week and I’ll have forgotten all about them otherwise!
