    You know you're a geek when........

    How do YOU know you're a geek?

    I'll start...

    You know you're a geek when you can hold an entire conversation with friends in linux CLI talk......(i.e. 'cat /proc/lookattheassonthat!') or ('cd /pub/beer')

    You know you're a geek when you start to notice that people are crazy.

    (maybe that's just if you're insane... I don't know which part of me says that)

    You know you're a geek when it's too late.

    You know you're a geek when you can quote every line of dialogue in Spaceballs and know every movie or book the movie is spoofing in a given scene.

    You know you're a geek when..

    You have used words like "lol", "leet" and "omg" in daily speech
    You miss the F1 button under math classes
    You say lol instead of laughing.. or you write , in essays at school
    You try yo get into the BIOS of your car
    You scream "Just ****ing google it" when somebody asks a simple question in the class
    You accuse everybody running faster than your self of using speed hack
    You've got The Flu and are trying to do a virus check
    Somebody asks you about your address, you give them: 192.12.0.140
    You are seriously considering asking your doctor how much you can overclock your brain
    At Macdonalds, you're ordering a 160MB hamburger
    You wish you've ordered your house through Microsoft, it would be so easy to just take the backdoor in..

    When you are typing out a path in the Forums and you try to tab-complete it.

    You find it more natural to count 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 than 1,2,3,4,5,6..

    Your chair has over time grown into a perfect replica of your ass
    Somebody yells at you, and you're desperately looking for the "mute"-button

    You try not to use public computers because you don't want to see all the problems with the way they are administered- cause you will see them.

    (plus you miss the extra screen).

    You talk about torrents or Open Source Software to friends like you are selling Amway.


    You dream about screensavers.


    You have trouble translating Apple's ratios for music (* songs) to what you understand (GB!). I mean....songs are different sizes right?

    ****mind explodes*****

    You use "zeroth" as the first position in a queue or other sequence of arbitrary size.

    You were actually excited when you discovered caca output for xine.

    You can no longer watch TV because adverts make you reach for alt-f4.

    Malfunctioning computers, or poorly factored code cause you genuine physical and emotional pain.

    Your fatherly happy thought is not teaching your son to ride a bicycle, but to hack Python.
