“Geek Tizzy” Defined

When a geek’s mind sees the solution to an interesting problem is through a twisty maze of corridors, identifies the path, and leaps into a blur action involving cables, spare hardware, and possibly a screwdriver.

Such as seeing the solution to “how do I download this 150G torrent of ‘Dr. Who’ episodes in a sane method?” is to attach a spare 150G USB drive to the linux server (even if it only has USB1 on it, quickly install Ubuntu in a VMWare Virtual machine, map the virtual machine’s network to the unused internet connection from work, and then download, download, download!

Just as an example of course. Sadly it appears that once again I’m not the first person to think of the phrase. I had the same dissapointment when I coined WhoGasm.
