Back in the mid 80's Macintosh was almost more of a religion than a brand. Apple actuall hired "evangalists" to go to usergroup meetings. Yes, I did attend the San Diego Computer Society's Macintosh Usergroup meeting on the UCSD campus back then...good times...good place to meet men. Also I learned a lot about computing. Did I ever make jewelry from my MacPlus, no, I did however spray paint it to look like it was carved from granite. So, does this make me a geek?

Both!


If anyone wants - I have a dead Macintosh Performa in my basement! I never thought of turning it into jewelry - I did contemplate a fishtank though.

if movies have taught me anything D&D is not nerdy, anyone who likes the movie AIRHEADS knows what D&D can bring a person closer to another, I too have a D&D book, I have no clue how to use it but when I was younger I wish I knew.

Gah....are you people just trying to measure how much of a geek I am?
What if the Jewelry is worn by someone else?
And out of curiosity, by first edition do we mean AD&D or the old box set for basic D&D where you have to color the numbers on the dice?

EDIT:
PS --- Where exactly is the camera you left in my house?
