And the uber-geek award goes to...

While rummaging through the submissions for our upcoming Top 11 list, "Top 11 lame excuses for holding a LAN Gaming Party in your office," I simply couldn't resist publishing a couple of entires. Call them my "uber-geek" awards. First place goes to Owen Mathias for the following gem.

and the runner up goes to Lance Johnson for this cleaver notion.

Email to all staff members: All the applications are down today, and we need to retest our methods of remote deployment; here's a pirate copy of "QUAKE II" for your enjoyment while you wait for the systems to come back online; click here to download. Thank you --The IT Department

Congratulations guys!*
