computer geek

computer geek: n. One who eats (computer) bugs for a living. One
   who fulfills all the dreariest negative stereotypes about hackers:
   an asocial, malodorous, pasty-faced monomaniac with all the
   personality of a cheese grater.  Cannot be used by outsiders
   without implied insult to all hackers; compare black-on-black usage
   of `nigger'.  A computer geek may be either a fundamentally
   clueless individual or a proto-hacker in larval stage.  Also
   called `turbo nerd', `turbo geek'.  See also propeller head,
   clustergeeking, geek out, wannabee, terminal
   junkie, spod, weenie.
