>From the Jargon File:

geek out

 geek out /vi./ To temporarily enter techno-nerd mode while in a non-hackish
context, for example at parties held near computer equipment. Especially
used when you need to do or say something highly technical and don't have
time to explain: "Pardon me while I geek out for a moment." See computer
geek; see also propeller head.
