Nothing like spending time on the beach... with your laptop. (.mov trailer)
Geeks On Board is a documentary about a unique phenomenon, a one-week cruise designed for people who have an extraordinary relationship with their computers.

I like how the geekcruises website has a section on "convincing your spouse".

I always wanted to go on one of those Geek Cruises - a hardcore programming one, not Mac or Photoshop. I figure as a basically-kinda-cute, if plump and aging, coder grrl, I would be in a statistical minority and probably kinda popular with the straight males onboard. And I'd maybe learn something about software development too.

I'm sold. When's the boat leave?

Matildaben, come hop on my boat, we'll drive them insane.

"convincing your spouse".

I know someone who went on a Geek Cruise for her honeymoon ... she's an IT marketing executive and he's a Linux developer so no problem there.

I have a friend who went on the geekcruise, he IM:ed me from it that he had just met Larry Wall and wanted to show him my (Perl code) tattoo "send me a .jpg now". well I thought it was fun.. it's like, I met Larry Wall, by proxy.

odinsdream, I think some geek guys are cute, and I know how to fight off the ones I'm not interested in.

It's the "fighting off" that I admire, matildaben ;-)

Is being chubby a requirement for being a geek (Pogue excepted)?
