    YKYAGW when 3 minutes into a conversation with a friend on what you are currently programming at work, you realize you lost their attention about 2 minutes ago.

    You set up an ubuntu web and file server and use ssh -Y to operate it from a mac ,though you for the life of you do not understand why you do this.

    YKYAGW you can save hundreds on new hardware because you know so many vendors.
    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.

    you try to demonstrate your girlfriend how easy it is to use SSH on Laptop#1 to log into Laptop#2,
    use SSH there to log into PC#3,
    and from PC#3 via SSH into PC#4,

    and she only responds... "yeah? so?"

    Got that one right!
    YKYAGW you keep all your game data that isn't synchronized online on your server (and you can access it from anywhere on the network).
    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.

    ... You actually have a scheduled time to back up everything, your computers; your games consoles; your digital camera - everything.
