SparkPeople Geeks and Nerds Team Messageboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=994 We have known our whole lives how powerful it truly is to be a geek or geekette. Now it is time to show the world! Join this superpowered team so we can spark the world with our awesomeness! SparkPeople Geeks and Nerds Team Messageboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/assets/nav/nav_logo_v3.gif http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=994 Game of Thrones http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x59103982 I love to read as does my family, but I have been utterly confounded in my attempts to convince anyone in my family to read the Game of Thrones books. This has left me with all sorts of lovely theories that I am just itching to discuss/propose/have debunked, but no one with whom to discuss them. Anyone game? I've watched the first three (not four) seasons of the HBO version on DVD, and would be willing to *try* to be unspoilerific. At least a little. :) Wed, 10 Sep 2014 15:41:54 EST Suggestions please, good half hour TV shows http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x59103933 Hi! Winter Is Coming here in the north, and soon I will have to stop "running" outdoors and stick solely to my treadmill. Last year I used a hdmi cable to link my phone up to a monitor, so I was able to watch shows/movies on NetFlix while I plodded away. It was almost enough of a distraction to make me forget the whole treadmill tedium bit! Unfortunately most of the shows that interest me are an hour long TV-time, meaning about 45 min long without commercials. I'm looking for half hour T...

Except I'm looking to change one of those, so i'm here on SP! <BR> <BR> My geekdoms / nerddoms are pretty basic: Science, sci-fi, fantasy, video games, RPG's, tabletop games, CCG's, Doctor Who, Comics (Marvel moreso than DC), etc. <BR> <BR> I wear my geek stripes proudly, i'm an engineering student about to graduate with my AA, hoping to transfer to a university in the next year and start towards my BA.

Sat, 6 Sep 2014 17:47:02 EST Dr. Who http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x59054212 Watched an old Dr. Who episode on NetFlix today while on the treadmill. It's a great way to keep myself distracted while I exercise! It happened to be one of the Christmas episodes, and thus a bit longer--59 minutes instead of the usual 45 or so. End result: I ran that much longer. Thanks for the extra calorie burn Doctor!

Scifi, I think is what we're going to go with here. But I always enjoy meeting other geeky peoples and I hoping this will help me with losing the weight I've gained sitting on my couch.

I joined SparkPeople ages ago ... when I was in my 20's and had only had two children. I got really busy when I decided to go back to school in 2007 and forgot all about this site. So, surprise me when I got an e-mail (sent en mass to one of the SparkTeams I was in) and I remembered all about SparkPeople. Whoops! Now, I'm married and just had my 3rd child, whom turned a year old Jan 24th. I've begun actively working on loosing the weight and I have some...

Now I've let me weight creep up to the heaviest I've ever been, and my strength and overall fitness have gone way, way, down. <BR> <BR> I'm an Army vet, so it's frustrating to be where I am now.

Thu, 5 Dec 2013 09:52:24 EST weightloss from FanExpo http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x54678748 Hey, just thought I'd share that I attended FanExpo in Toronto over the weekend, all four days thurs-sun. I managed to not only resist the junk food there (mostly pizza and hotdogs) by bringing my own snacks of nuts and fruit-bars, but also got a ridiculous amount of walking done. And in doing so I apparently lost 4 pounds over the weekend which turned a hugely fun weekend (and a potentially very unhealthy weekend if I was eating the food there) into a hugely productive one as well! Tue, 27 Aug 2013 11:51:11 EST hello :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x994x53882457 I joined sparkpeople at the beginning of 2013, but then more or less sort of fell out of it. But I am happy to get back, and excited to be a part of this sparkteam!!! It makes me happy to have a team like this, it makes me feel comfortable and at home to know there are other geeks like me on here with common goals and interests :) Tue, 25 Jun 2013 12:24:01 EST Doom, doom, doom! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x994x53873627 Hey there! I'm a web designer/developer and general-purpose geek. I like the standard stuff: Firefly, Dr. Who, Warehouse 13, Star Wars, Star Trek, and so on, with a preference for anything with good female characters. I do some tabletop RPGs (though I don't have a regular game right now) and have, in the past, done White Wolf LARPs. My only LARPing now is in the form of one-shots - check out <link>www.shiftingforest.com/ </link> for examples. Honestly, it's hard to get my friends to play a...

And, believe me, it was love at first sight (site, and cite ;-)). <BR> <BR> However, I am the only computer jock I have "met" in those 43 years that detests scifi. To illustrate, the only "scifi" vehicles I've ever enjoyed are "Galaxy Quest", and the "Back to the Future Series", all of which I take are spoofs of the genre. <BR> <BR> It's not that I don't like tech culture,...

I'm very greedy when it comes to doing things, so at this point of my life I'm writting my thesis, teaching creative dance, working as a freelance translator, trainting to run a 5k and training my body back to dance profesionally. I'm ... Sun, 20 May 2012 15:50:45 EST Spark Hangout Idea. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x47990421 So, I am a big fan of the Google products. I also am in a D&D group that recently had 2 members relocate out of the area. I decided to bring that D&D group to Google+ Hangouts and it has been a SMASHING success. <BR> <BR> Then, a few days ago, I was thinking about other ways to stay motivated in a diet/exercise program and it hit me.....Hangouts! <BR> <BR> My first post was to Google+. I put out a call for folks that want to lose weight. After a few days of no response (partly due to the l...

I am so tired of the same old excuses and I'm tired of hating myself. I really want to be happy again. <BR> <BR> I'm looking for friends who can understand where I'm coming from, and people who have had success that I can learn from. I hope to be able to help others too.

If my boyfriend didn't play as well, I don't know what I'd do. <BR> <BR> Wed, 15 Nov 2006 16:35:03 EST Ftw. (Or: "May I have your attention please?") http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x3759246 Hello, Geek Forum! <BR> <BR> I need, or at least I would like, a second opinion on this piece of writing that I am very badly tempted to post in the blog SP provides. I'm not entirely sure it would be appreciated by everyone who might stumble across it though, so I thought I'd ask for a second opinion. To post or not to post? That's the question. <BR> <BR> And yes, I have been a bit frustrated lately. :-) <BR> <BR> -Chili <BR> <BR> ******************************* <BR> <BR> They told me i... Mon, 13 Nov 2006 01:27:40 EST What are your goals? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x3525353 Since this little team is built around a lifestyle (mindset?) that doesn't clearly articulate our goals, I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread for them. In the "lose 20 lbs before Christmas"-team, everyone has roughly the same goal, and thus the same challenges and triumphs that they can share with each other. We don't, but it seems logical to assume that we have other things in common, things that can be just as supportive, helpful, and encouraging, if we only let them. <BR> <B... Mon, 16 Oct 2006 10:41:40 EST Team logo http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x3418919 Since I'm in an active mood this evening, I have decided to upload a team logo. However, I have run into an unfortunate problem. I have no idea what to upload. I'm thinking of Yoda, because I like him, but there are all sorts of geeks, and not all of them are in to Star Wars. So I'm thinking we need a vote, or at least suggestions from other team members. <BR> <BR> Who or what should be our team logo? <BR> <BR> -Chili Mon, 2 Oct 2006 23:15:00 EST Hello and welcome http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x3418714 Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> As you've probably noticed, I've become the new team leader. Kekadu was generous and let gave me admin abilities of this little forum when I asked her if she would mind if I tried to get the Geeks and Nerds team active again. <BR> <BR> As you probably can imagine, I really appreciate the gesture. <BR> <BR> I'd like to make the team active, as active as can be, with everyone having jobs, school, family, and so on. <BR> <BR> So let's start be active and healthy geeks... Mon, 2 Oct 2006 22:45:24 EST So what makes you a geek/nerd? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x994x3171927 Are you a computer whiz? 4r3 j00 9r347 47 r34din9 4nd wri7in9 1337? Can you quote all of Monty Python and the Holy Grail? Do you LARP or dice chuck? Can you tell the difference between Rosencrantz and Guildenstern based on the lines alone? Is Chewie your copilot? Did you cry when Aeris died? <BR> <BR> Just what is it that you do or what you know or who you are that makes you embrace your inner nerd-geekness? <BR> <BR> I'm a dice chucking, Shakespeare reading, Renfest going, Serenity fangi...
