What kind of a birthday card do you make for a geek?

    My nephew will be 29 this week, and he is a total geek. He recently got a job with Best Buy as a member of the Geek Squad
    and he's in heaven! So what kind of birthday card do you make for a geek?

    I found an image of an old style typewriter, and put round stickers on the keyboard. I then covered them with clear domes. I did have the chrome rings
    to put them in like the old keyboard, but the size was wrong with the size of the pic I had to use.

    Not the best card I've made, but I remembered at the last minute...


    Can you read binary? (It says HAPPY BIRTHDAY).


    Hope he likes it!

    Let's put it this way.. I worked on IBM029's and IBM129's and can still read punch cards without the ink. I worked on machines that had the binary switches were on the front casings. We had to study this stuff back when it was called "Data Processing". It was "nerd" not "geek" back then. lol.

    ha ha, yeah, I still refer to my DH as my live-in nerd.

    I was originally going to go to the thrift store and buy a couple of old keyboards, pop off the keys and rearrange them to read HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT, and send him the keyboard, but I forgot to do it ahead of time enough. :hammer: So this was my next best thing.
