Ask [GAS]: How did you come to realize that you were a geek?

We’ve all done it; a project that we hold dear in our memory and that made us realize that darn, being a geek is pretty darn sexy after all. For me, it probably was when a few friends and I installed and customized our own Telegard BBS, which was running on an old 286, in the late 80’s. This thing was running on a 9600 baud modem and was receiving around 20 to 30 calls per day. This may sound laughable when compared to what even the smallest website can get today, but we were really proud of what we had accomplished. This eventually led me to start a career in IT and, one day, start this little place that I’ve come to throw so much time into.

But what about you, dear readers? What was the turning point that made you realize that you were going to be a geek, and that this geekiness was going to define how you live the rest of your life? Was it an event, or maybe a crazy project that popped in your mind one day?

Whatever the case, we’d love to hear about it! As usual, the comments section is open for your thoughts!
