    You know your a geek when:

    1) Everyone around you seems like a moron to you

    2) Sitting at your computer all day is FUN! and >>>>>>>>*

    3) You dont understand why people dont google things they dont know

    4) You have no-one to talk to about computers/Linux/BSD/Windows etc..

    5) You know how to build a computer, and you enjoy doing it.

    6) You find it frustrating using an OS that you dont know the inner workings of

    7) You enjoy learning as much about computers as you possibly can

    8 ) You wish you had a job that revolved around you sitting in front of your computer all day.

    9) You wish you knew how to program

    10) You love FOSS

    11) You know what FOSS is, and GPL, etc...

    12) You know the inner workings and future of DRM, that no matter how hard you try, others around you dont seem to "get it" and your angered that they dont even care.

    13) Your the only computer user you know thats annoyed by WGA, Activation, DRM, "Trusted Computing" etc.....

    14) You wish you could make a stand against the big software companies

    15) The internet is vital to your existance

    16) You'd rather stay in on your computer than go out.

    17) You wish you could controll your whole life through your computer

    18 ) You need to replace your keyboard every year due to "wear and tear"

    19) You wish everybody would "leave you alone"

    20) You cant understand how others around you can manage to tie their shoe laces they are so dumb.

    21) The "Humm" of your computer is relaxing.

    22) You felt the need to post in this thread

    23) You dream about websites you could set up



    Thats about all I can think of right now, only a handful actually apply to me, although the fact that even ONE does, scares me......
    If someone tells you to sudo rm -rf ANYTHING, then DO NOT DO IT!

    Don't run any command with rm in it unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing.

    When you click the link for the next page in the "You know you're a geek when........" thread and you panic because you keep receiving "Page Load Error" messages. Then you have no clue what you're going to do since ubuntuforums.org is down temporarily?!

    ...then it comes back up and all is right with the world again.

    -blasted Internet Explorer!

    Whew !! I thought that was just me !!
    This week has been particularly traumatic, about 9 times, I couldn't get on to ubuntuforums, but when I hit google, all was well.
    Are the ubuntu servers getting overloaded?
    Time for a "sudo apt-get install better server" no ?

    "My local IP address is 192.168.1.15"
    "My WAN IP is 65.67.84.192"
    "ping \n anyone there" (extra points if you format this correctly)

    When you organize a contest 'who can compile XeTeX the in shortest time'. This has actually happened to my teacher (left side of the photo) on this year's BachoTeX conference. He claims to have won.

    As you can see, when IT people gather with beer and guitar, they have strange ideas.
    No, you can't beat it.

    You know you're a geek when........ you would give up your satellite TV before you would give up your high speed DSL connection. (I know I would! )

    • ...you are constantly frustrated by poor user interfaces in day to day life, wishing you could reprogram your alarm clock, microwave, answering machine, etc. to make it more efficient and/or user friendly. (The situation is even worse if you automatically dream up the specific code you would use if you could rewrite the interface.)

    • ...you talk to geeky people you don't even like, just because you have no friends at your level of geekiness and are desperate to discuss things like InitNG, FreeNX, etc. with another live human being.

    • ...when away from your computer you get frustrated by the killer apps missing from your brain. (KJots, amaroK, Firefox, and Google/Wikipedia searchbox)
