another new verb

friend of mine has just sent me a message using the verb 'to geek' . . .
meaning presumably to do computer-centric things, or, in his definition
'lit means iwill have the net on and relax at home with a few bottles of
red wine and a nice curry and have music in the background and sit on
the net looking at what ever i feel to'

would it be strong or weak ?

geek, [geekst], geeks, geek, geek, geek
i geeked/i gaught
i have geeked/i have gaught.

i think we have to know !

incidentally, my brother always used to treat the phrase 'have to' as
'haft to', and thus formed the past tense as 'hafted to'. still does in
fact, and he's now 18. i suppose it's a bit like 'i used to', /'just@/
being negated as 'i didn't use to' (sp?) /'dId¬n? 'just@/ rather than 'i
used not to', which my father would say.
