100 Essential Skills for Geeks

Geek Dad has a list of one hundred skills that he thinks that every geek should know. A few examples:

26. Boot a computer off a thumb drive.
40. Transcode a DVD to play on a portable device.
71. Explain that the colours in a rainbow are roygbiv.
84. Know where your towel is and why it is important.
96. Have a documented plan on what to do during a zombie or robot uprising.
100. Get something on the front page of Digg.


What is your geek quotient? What would you add to the list?
