Zwei Seelen

Deutlich prosaischer, aber auch erheblich pr├Ąziser als der verehrte Geheimrat diagnostiziert Matt Gemmell die Zerrissenheit eines Geeks:

Geeks are known to love configuring and customising their devices, but perhaps paradoxically they can also be reluctant to do so because of a compulsion to not deviate too far from a clean (and thus presumably safe, fast, efficient, known and well-tested) configuration.
