I thought I was a geek, but I’ve got nothing on Bernie Peng. You may have read his story on any of a number of news sites (CNN, Yahoo!, The Chicago Sun-Times, etc.). Bernie Peng spent an entire month hacking his girlfriend’s favorite video game: Bejeweled.
Why did he do it? So it would pop the question for him, of course. He programmed the game to ask her to marry him once she reached a certain score.
I guess it’s a good thing they didn’t break up between the time he finished hacking the game and when she reached that score.
