You know you're a geek when...
...the Green Day song "Wake Me Up When September Ends" makes you think of Usenet.
Also, for those of you who haven't already heard me ask this today, any good recommendations for C and C++ reference books? I have recommendations for K&R (duh!) for C and Stroustrup for C++. Any other good ideas? I have reasonable experience in C -- I can write simple stuff in it, and read it, but I don't know all the little tricks (there's a bunch of shortcut syntaxes I always have to look up, etc.) and don't have a good coding style yet. I don't know any C++, nor have I done much OO programming. The first programming language I learned was Forth, and the languages I'm best in are Fortran 77 (simple & elegant like concrete overpasses) and MATLAB.
