So none of us are really geekier than the other, we just specialize in different areas.
I was going to post something along those same lines. My friends are all plenty knowledgable about computers, and all of them have either administrator or web development jobs. That being said, I sometimes take for granted the knowledge I have just from being a gamer. I've had more than a few conversations with computer-savvy acquaintances that were like:
Them: "Yeah, I just bought a new computer--spent lots of money to get the fastest machine I could get."
Me: "Hey, cool! What kind of video card?"
Them: "A uhh.. n-vida" or "A uh.. ge-four".
Me: <slaps head because I know it's on-board or something>
or even worse...
Them: "I have a GeForce MX! Supposed to be an awesome card!"
