    Was the computer running Windows? That might explain it

    you have a dream about using PCLinuxOS and wake up. Then you remember you are running Ubuntu and can sleep happily.

    That happened to me, but it was right after I switched back to Ubuntu. I was mainly happy because I knew I did the install and I didn't want to have to install it again.

    you know you are a geek when you are jealous because you can not claim this.

    NEVER type a command you don't understand eg. sudo rm -rf / or something similar
    Learn about them here or here.

    You still have your first computer, and it still works.

    (This is true, I've still got a working ZX81 with games )

    I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but you have to be pretty darn geeky to know your own geek code.
