30 out of 55 --- misssed the next group by 1 !?!!

So I'm grounding myself for a year till the next year's quiz when I hope to do better -)

Also a heads up -- the login for the quiz at the end of it is not the same as the MaxPC one - It's an entirely different one for the quiz thing itself. Drove me nuts for a good while.

How do I find my score?  The login for the quiz went away.  This is a really crappy quiz.

Don't waste your time if you want to be competitive and get a score.

Completed  Geek Quiz 2011 and it said I had to logon to check my score and 'compare'.  Minimized browser. Went to get logon/password.  Maximised browser:  logon screen disappeared.  Ain't gonna take the quiz again.  EVER!!!!!

Quizz is no longer working because nobody paid for it...

"This demo is shown for unpaid quizzes.  The original quiz will be reinstated upon payment."

I was rather looking forward to testing my Geek knowlege as well. :(

Sorted this out with QuizRev and the quiz should be up and working again now. Sorry about that, folks, and enjoy!

The quiz seems to no longer be working. Which really stinks because I was looking forward to finding out how well I did this year. Hopefully it works soon so I can take it.

3700 out of 5500. Had a few too many "Of course!" moments right after I answered.  Good job on the book titles btw!

I got a 26.  All the questions about old hardware I pretty much got wrong, bc I wasn't a geek then!!

I'm good with that...

But! I took the quiz while on my phone and still got the ^ character question correct without sitting infront of a keyboard. /flex!

The names on those books in that image is a bona fide WIN!

Coming up with the names for those books: best. meeting. ever.

Thay are pretty awesome. That would make a good desktop background.

Didn't get the opensource question. Both firefox and redhat linux are open source but when I picked RH I got marked wrong. Hell even android is opensource. So why do we have to pick one?

I got 5200/5500 the first time and 5500/5500 the second time :)

Too many questions about games that I don,t play. A game is a game, and I know lots of people who play games and don,t know dick shit about computers or technology. I know lots of people who know lots about computers and technology but don,t know dick shit about games. Game knowlege is not geeky,they are called gamers.

"Rotate your monitors all you want, cheaters, there are no answers printed anywhere in the online Geek Quiz. Good luck!"

That's all I see. Guess I win! :)

Probably cause my ad blocker blocked it. ha-ha I win!!!!

Update: Yeah the "start" button was missing so switched IE 9. haha

Even then it fails to get past the first question so looks like the quiz is broken a bit.

Tested and working in Firefox, Chrome, and IE9. You do need to have JavaScript enabled, however.

avatar

war59312

Java-script is enabled.

Still can NOT get past the first question in any browser or computer I have tried. Tried on Windows 7 and on Ubuntu.

Oh well!

Not bad, not great.

Going to glue myself to this moniter and re - read some of those articles

Seriously, guys, what the hell?  I still don't have the September issue.  Dream Machine 2011 is old news, and now the Geek Quiz is out.  Please stop doing this.  Why are we subscribing to the magazine if it's all on the website weeks in advance?

EDIT: 30/55...NOOOO!  I almost had the Force...

25 out of 55. I feel dumb, yet nerdy a little bit... weird feeling.

I gave up at around question 20...as soon as it started asking questions about what skin was used in whatever the game was called, I knew right then that I was helpless =P.

Oh well. I pass most other geek quizzes...I only care what's relevant to MSCITP and the like.

Meh.  I could've done better.  As for going outside less often, I don't know much about DSLR's, which was (at least partly) my downfall.

Me too :/ Every year my score goes down, since I've been moving around so much cause of school I don't have my MaxPC subscription any more which hurts my score a lot :(
