So, last night I made my new Geekmas Tree for my cubicle at work.

Yup, that's 8mb 'Ornaments', Zip-Tie 'Tinsel', Athlon XP 1700 'Star' and USB 'Garland'. :lol:

Anyone else celebrating Geekmas?

Someone has waaaayyyy too much time on their hands.

You know you could always try and get some work done.

*GASP*

Lol, exellent job. Now only if you had colored LEDs instead of actual xmas lights. Now that would be geeky. :D

Twas the night before Geekmas
and all through the house
No PCs were stirring,
Not even the MSmouse.

The children were offline
and stuck in their heads
Were visions of DOOM3
so they hid under their beds

When up from the roof
There rose such a clatter
It was louder than a Maxtor
with an off-balance platter
...

That's it. The brain is fried. Someone else take the next verse, please.

The light from the LCD on the face of the lan-er,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh filled with cool pc gear,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew knew he was naviagating with his wireless NIC.
More rapid than Raptors his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

That's it for me.

Now Dasher! Now Razor! Now Laser and Fittsen!
On Clocker! On CPUid! On Talon and Blitzen!
To the top of the case! To the top of the screen!
Now flash away! Flash away! Flash away all!

As benchmarks that always leave our mouths dry,
When the graphs on TR reach for the sky,
So up to the case-tower the reindeer they flew
With the sleigh of ph4t l00t, and Saint Damage too!

...
whew! The reindeer were tough. So who's next?

And then in a twinkling I saw in the case
Radeons and Geforces overclocking apace.
As on the monitor video stress tests strobed,
Into the case peered Saint Damage, with a temperature probe.

He was dressed in blue jeans and a Tech Report sweater.
He grasped all the power cables and bundled them together.
He pulled four sticks of RAM from an OEM lot,
And set about plugging them into DIMM slots.
