PR PUFFS: Is that a hard drive or are you just pleased to see me?

Liverpool girls make passes at nerds who wear glasses. Allegedly

PR PUFFS: Is that a hard drive or are you just pleased to see me?
 

TECH geeks and computer nerds, be lonely no more. According to "research" released today, you are experiencing something of a U-turn on the UK dating scene.

Women all over Liverpool are apparently dropping their chips for men who get excited over a different sort of chip.

Formerly unlucky in love, tech-savvy males have become HOT. Says who? A company which sells.... computer components!

"In the recent past, the stereotypical image of a tech geek included jam-jar glasses and minimal social skills," it says.

"However, new research has revealed that 56 percent of women from Liverpool prefer a man who knows his way around a computer, as opposed to one who can tinker under a car bonnet (46 percent ) or brag about his knowledge of Britain’s favourite sport, football (10 percent ).

"However, men who pride themselves on their knowledge of more serious subjects don’t make the cut either, with only 19 percent  of women looking for a guy who knows a lot about politics. Over a fifth of women (22 percent)  believe that being tech-savvy makes a man relationship material."

The PR release, from Crucial.com, contends: "Knowing about technology and having confidence using it is important to 91 percent  of Liverpool women. Almost three quarters (72 percent ) believe tech knowledge can help fix or upgrade tech devices when they break – and make them run faster and save money in the long run.

 “If men today want to really impress a potential partner, they need to up their game and become more tech-savvy,” said Roddy McLean from Crucial.

“A simple memory upgrade can speed up a slow computer, while also making men appear tech-savvy to both a partner and in-laws”.

'Tech tasks that British men feel confident completing'

Changing a printer/toner cartridge        79 percent
Replacing a laptop battery                      73 percent
Removing viruses or malware                 63 percent
Adding storage to a computer                 53 percent
Upgrading a computer’s memory/RAM   48 percent
None of the above                                    11 percent

I've yet to meet a nerd who can change a car tyre. It's un-nerd of!.

Well as Liv Confidential is in the 5th year of it's 3 month upgrade, it might be useful if they went out and hire some geeks. I believe that the picture is actually the server and main editing computer at confidential towers. I feel confident at writing multi threaded applications using non blocking IO, never founded that that got any women's knickers moist unless it was because of pissing themselves with laughter. Explaining the non deterministic nature of ethernet at a night club is also likely to get you www.youtube.com/watch… .

The is certainly true, provided the said rabbits are in a pie, with some veg and a bit of Afghani black.
