Notes

T11R3 Challenge (Encyclopedia): VOLUME N: NERD WARS

  • Craft something inspired by what Nerd Wars means to you. Moss has an intricate and detailed knowledge of specialized technical subjects such as computers, chemistry and electrical engineering. He is a lover of board games, and even has his own board game review show. He is a Countdown champion. Much like Moss, each NW team has detailed knowledge of their own nerdery and we go to great lengths to promote it. Plus, you can’t get much nerdier than Moss.

  • Craft something inspired by a fellow warrior. Moss has been Elise’s Gamemaster ravatar for many tournaments, so I associate him with Nerd Wars.


Nerdy Moss quotes:

“See the driver hooks a function by patching the system call table, so it’s not safe to unload it unless another thread’s about to jump in there and do its stuff, and you don’t want to end up in the middle of invalid memory!”

Moss: Did you notice how she didn’t even get excited when she saw this original ZX81?
Roy: Yeah, that was weird. It’s almost as if she doesn’t know anything about computers.

“Unbelievable! Some idiot disabled his firewall, meaning all the computers on floor Seven are teeming with viruses.”

“Ha! Memory is RAM!”

[Moss on “Countdown”]
Moss: I shall give my answer, if I may, in the form of a joke.
Prime: This is most irregular…
Moss: What do you call Negative One sitting alone in an empty room?
Prime: I don’t know, what do you call Negative One sitting alone in an empty room?
Moss: Overnumerousness!
Gyles: Yes, that is a word! And the joke does make sense!

“I want to go back to being weird. I like being weird. Weird is all I’ve got. That and my sweet style.”

“Oh my gosh! It’s a robot! I’ve never seen one in the wild before. Where did you come from fella, where’d ya come from? Can we keep him Roy only if he doesn’t belong to anyone?”

Moss: What kind of operating system does it use?
Police: Err… it’s… Vista!
Moss: We are going to die!

Moss: [Jen enters room] Oh Jen, exciting news! I’ve just uploaded the second episode of my board game’s review show! Care to have a look.
Jen: [Looking displeased] That was fast. Seems like only yesterday we had to sit through the last one.
Moss: [Incredulously] It was three months ago!
