Presenting Node’s Proudest Geek

Friday, July 14th, 2017 by

Our Node ‘Proud to be a Geek’ comp launched last month to celebrate Geek Pride Day so all the geeks out there could get some well-deserved recognition and the chance to win a FRITZ!Box 7490!

Throughout the competition our #NodeGeeks wore their inner geekdom with pride and we were blown away by the quality and quantity of entries!

We South Aussies know that Fritz that comes in slices and is often mistaken for polony. . .



 Gael Fox – “Was expecting packaged meat. . . . fritz”



Lucky for us, a few of our Node Fans cleared that up!


Scott Evans – “Here’s my mess! Oh and the fritzbox 7390 in the picture was on loan to me at the time!”






Bob Denelzen  – “#nodegeek Obviously I need it !!!!! Not enough Geek Stuff !!”






Bboyle – “Proud to be a Greek, already have a and it’s in good company :) #nodegeek”

Watch the video!



The competition started on the 25th of May and we made sure we enticed our Geekiest Node Fans with some references you may have recognised. It was a tough choice but the winning entry was a collection like no other! This is just a taster so be sure to check out the whole collection! It’s safe to say that Colyn will definitely need the FRITZ!Box 7490 to get an internet signal through that massive #nodegeek collection!

We were blown away by all your awesome collections, and figured it was only fair to share some of our favourites. So enjoy!
