Geek test says Peter Kay is a “Computer God”

I just took this online geek test. It was a riot and I scored 97%! For “old timers” like me some of the questions brought back some fond memories, like programming on my Commodore 64 and connecting at 1200 (wait, 300!) baud.

    300 baud? omg you weren’t ever on Saimin were you?

    I was on Saimin! At 3oo then 1200 then 2400 baud.

    Computer God – go Peter! I got an 86, which was way higher than my students (25 – 65). I used the Lisa, before the Mac, and had a monitor with a 300 bps acoustic coupler in my kitchen. Wow, isn’t broadband wonderful?!
