Now Geek This: Happy Father’s Day!

nowgeekthisHello, and welcome to another exciting edition of Now Geek This.  Since I am writing this article on Father’s Day, I thought it would be a nice way to celebrate the holiday, and my father, by telling you a little about the man that influenced the geek in me, my dad.  Though there are many factors, and people, that have helped to shape me into the geek I now am over the years, my father is, without a doubt, the single most important influence on my geek life, as well as many other aspects of my life.  In fact, I have noticed that I am slowly turning into my father as my  years on this planet increase.  Whether that is a good thing, or a bad thing, has yet to be determined.
