Get a plastic pocket protector and stammer a lot when you talk to girls.

That's the way I did it.

Don't forget to fill it with those 0.5mm mechanical pencils and oh yes at least one leaking ball point pen

One question that begs to be asked:

What label are you if you do not meet the criteria to be a fully fledged geek/nerd, or even a wannabe, (nor have any desire to be labelled as a geek or wannabe) yet still have latent geek tendencies that are not instantly obvious to the casual observer?

And once appropriately labelled, are we then to be shunned?

That is known as a Geek In Training, or "GIT" for short.

My friends from the UK call me that all the time.

EDIT
Does this count: it's 5:25AM, I've been online since 5PM, only interrupting to get more coffee, chorizo, beer & Jägermeister, posting 53 posts?
Only ones I don't qualify for are 5 and 6. 11 I partly do as I do network gaming quite a lot over LAN with friends. Number 6 only covers my netbook, too.

I don't know why they put web scripting doesn't count. I found server side scripting harder to learn than C, Java etc.

Though not as hard as assembly language.

If you're going to learn a programming language too, then have a look at Java. That's a very easy one to learn.
