Pretty funny how the pejorative term nerd can be bandied about with impunity.

Seems to me the connotation of the term "Nerd" has shifted a bit over the past several years. It's no longer exclusively used as an insult...as it was when I was a child.

I can think of other terms that are not "exclusively used as an insult" that Mike wouldn't use.

Very true... it's a weird feeling living in a world where being "nerdy" became fashionable.
