What's MC Word? When I google it I get 'Microsoft Word' and 'Mac Word'...
Not sure yet about the names of the months. Couple of possiblities:
-number from 0-12 (=Human calendar)
-number from 1-13
-January -> June - Sol - July -> December (=International fixed calendar)
-Archimedes, Brahe, Copernicus, Darwin, Einstein, Faraday, Galileo, Hippocrates, Imhotep, Jung, Kepler, Lavoisier, and Mendel (=Tranquility calendar)

I'm guessing any event associated with Star Wars, Star Trek, Comic con, science, board games and face-to-face games (dungeons and dragons, Magic the Gathering, etc) would be a place to start. "Gamers" of the online persuasion could be a possibility but I think the ratio of engineers to non engineers would be less favorable in that community. I'm not sure if these would fit your definition of "fun" or "less fun". For the people you meet, they'd be likely very fun so you might be stuck with a Trekkie forever.
Of course, getting a job in a place that has an engineering department would grant easier access. But that is a higher hurdle to entry.
Putting the words "engineer" in a dating profile could help engineers to find you. For instance, "I'm an introvert but I think I'd like to date an engineer, rocket scientist or performance artist".
Hopefully Greg or another engineer chimes in on other ways to find us or have us find you.
