Okay, I'm usually loath to post quiz results, but this made me laugh my ass off. Especially since I could instantly identify the first line as Ace Rimmer.

I'll smoke you a kipper, because you'll be back for breakfast. You're the cult television show quoting, user account deleting, soap loathing IT Manager.

Something in your childhood has made you the way you are. You've been hired to provide a service to everyone else in the office - you make the computers run, and you make them run well. You've streamlined everything; you've removed all the viruses and installed all the firewalls. The only trouble - the only hole in your veneer of digital perfection - is the way you laugh at everyone.

If someone doesn't know UNIX, you laugh at them. If they lose their password, they laugh at them. If they visit a website using Microsoft Internet Explorer and their computer succumbs to an Internet worm, you laugh. Then you take a swig of your Coke, and with another hearty chuckle tell all your friends on IRC about the idiots you have to deal with.

Maybe it makes you feel better about yourself, although let's face it, you don't need help in that department. You're great, you. Fantastic like burning cool. If only those luddite office fools would let you play Unreal Tournament in peace.

I'm the IT manager. Do you fancy me?

Edit: Geek moment. J. noted to me, "Shouldn't that be 'PH34R TEH G33K'?"
Me: "Hell no. Frankly, l33t-speak is more a hallmark of script-kiddies than actual geeks."
J: "Bull."
Me: "Please. Back in college I actually created a TCL script for the eggdrop I was running on a side EFNet IRC channel just to kickban anyone who used the words "w4r3z" or "d00dz" because we got so many morons spamming us."
J: "That's... uh..."
Me: "Sad?"
J: "Scary."
Me: "That too."
