I scored 92 - I was probably let down by the fact that graphical calculators are really uncommon over here,
and that the machine I happened to be using (ThinkPad 380z) maxes out at 160MB.  The other three computers
around me all have over half a Gig... and howcome they didn't ask how many computers there are in your living
room?

I was somewhat annoyed (as I often am when questionnaires don't ask the right questions) that there was no
option for my operating system of choice:  OS/2!  If I could have said that I think it should have upped my
score considerably...

Oops, 71. But I was not allowed to choos 'I am a PIC type (14-bit
core)'. And Jal was not listed as (non?) programming language!

Some revelations for me. No wonder I only scored 79.

I picked Assembly as not being a language since it is
basically just shufflying bits around from one
register to another.

And the Klingon website dispelled another
misconception. So much for Klingons being
carbon-based. Apparently, they are silicone-based.

How is it possible to have a Human/Klingon hybrid as shown on Next
Generation (Warf's son), as well as the Klingons that were genetically
modified with Human DNA on Enterprise if they are silicone based?

Well, I was immensely surprised.
I didn't lie - but I leant towards the obvious nerdy answers where
possible where there was an honest choice.
Main OS is Windows - that should mark me down.
Browser is IE - surely another black mark.
Said 3 or 4 for microscope etc as one on that list was probably
lacking. (The calculator isn't mine).
Could have done better in quite a few other areas, I felt.
Pondered on whether COBOL or C++ is less a programming language and
opted for COBOL as being the more likely approved choice (as people
who set such tests are probably less nerdy than some).
So, overall, I was rather surprised to get 143 ! (octal, of course*).

The test result is, it says, a ranking of your nerdiness relative to
others, not an absolute score, so you can "fail" any number of
questions and rank highly as long as most others do worse (or better,
depending on perspective).

Note that there is code at the end of the test to paste on a website
to brag about your score and direct others to the page.

Those who can't even spell RPN are at a distinct disadvantage here.

My favorite is a window sign I saw for a small law partnership in a rural

To make matters more interesting there was a discrete plaque nearby

I used to know a solicitor ("lawyer" for the left-ponded) who worked for a firm where the senior partner's

SiliconE. OK, it was a pun. See...someone here
referred to a site featuring Klingon women. I went to
the site. Everyone of them was chemically enhanced. So
I made a little pun about Klingons apparently being
silicone-based life forms. I'm REALLY sorry I did...

On second thought, I guess you could also say they
were silicon-based since silicone is related to
silicon...but I'm not going there, RM.

Yes, the Three Stooges used it.  I seem to recall

Hmm... A few years ago, a comic strip ran in the local newspaper

Actually it's a trademarked name for a production company.  I think it is
