    Today Is Geek Pride Day! Four Reasons to Feel Cheerful About Tech


    Star Wars Day may have just barely come and gone, but today, May 25, is perhaps an even bigger event for those of us in the tech world: Geek Pride Day.

    That's right: Not only is today Towel Day for fans of Douglas Adams' “The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy” trilogy, the anniversary of the release of the first Star Wars film, and the Glorious 25th of May for fans of Discworld, but it's also the day we can all revel without inhibition in our geekiness and love of technology.

    I just spent the last half hour reading up about Discworld. Sounds fascinating, but I'm not sure if I can find any books.

    Hello IceFire,

    Doing a Google search for "Discworld" in the Shopping category should find some for you.

    What shopping category? I have never seen a shopping section the entire time I was on this site.

    When you do a search for it at Google.com, you should see a Shopping category in the top left pane like below.

    The Discworld computer-games are worth a look, too, if you've never seen/played them.

    I have Discworld 1, but haven't played the sequel.

    It's an MS-DOS game, but runs fine in DOS-Box. The sequel was Win 95, from memory.....
