    Dang, how did this thread get so off topic?
    Anyway...
    YKYAGW you can tell off someone who claims to know how to run a server better than you when they forgot to configure the firewall properly.
    Once, I met a sysadmin who was having trouble getting a webserver to come online. Idiot forgot to open up port 80 for Apache to start working.
    And a Minecraft Server admin claimed to run a better server than me, but he couldn't get it to work properly. Open up port 25565, n00b.
    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.

    Heh, you should have heard my non-geek sister's response when I showed her a picture of a computer running Lose8.

    You know you're a geek when you have "Connection Reset By Peer" as your epitaph.

    Nice.

    You know you're a geek when you know why the concept of binary elements in XML is funny.

    ^^^That's awesome.

    YKYAGW you reply in code to a post for which a sufficient answer requires no computer code whatsoever.
    int main() {
    insert_clever_signature();
    return 0;
