    1. When you get annoyed at the fact they use Windows at school.
    2. You look at the hardware and software of school computers and price how much each computer costs. (Dell Optiplex, 512 MB RAM, Pentium 4, 80 GB HD, about 3000$ of software + 800$ hardware = about 4000$)
    3. When you tell your friends how much RAM and what kind of processor and what clock speed the processor is of the video game systems they own.

    Not funny ones, but true.

    You have annoyed your (non-programmer) friends by comparing the design and implementation of a complex program to writing a novel.

    I learned which ones were true friends that day... the ones who didn't walk away.

    Lol, nice one

    You frequently think in English or a programming language instead of whatever language is spoken at your location.
    You look at a clever math formula or program algorithm and think it is the most beutiful poetry you have ever read.
    Thats almost creepy

    Until you're able to actually prove it with real facts and statistics, it's not.

    Is there someone different in that account now?

    I just did a new install of windows 2000. I was playing quake 3 arena when I started getting little popups, like system popups... Telling me my PC was infected and I should go to a website to get a spyware program. They happen every couple minutes. Now if something can go wrong where it lets spyware in that easily then something is wrongly insecure. I only used IE to download firefox, and I dont go to crack sites (which are usually a known source for spyware) in windows. I have only gone on ubuntuforums and wordpress in firefox.

    It is just a well known fact - Windows gets spyware, viruses, and is all around unsecure. I am not going to pretend to know why since they have an $8 billion R&D budget, but its just the way things are and I dont think it is going to change anytime soon with vista.

    I was just giving you food for thought. Back to topic at hand now..

    You can count to 1023 on your fingers (useful if you've ever played french horn in an orchestra...)

    You sit for hours watching the terminal as software compiles

    You start conversations with 'ping' (or 220)

    You confuse the staff in Maplin (or whatever electronics/computer shops your country has)
