I saw this joke online today and I got it right away and thought it was quite humorous: Q: Why do computer geeks confuse Halloween & Christmas? A: 31 OCT = 25 DEC So I rushed off to tell my fellow programmers and they just didn’t get it. I even wrote it down for them. […]

OK, I always figured myself for a nerd, thanks in part to my family continually reminding me of that fact. Hence, I have appropriately named my freelance portal: Nerdlance.com.
