    That's why my mom was always mad at me growing up... (and my wife is sometimes today, though she's adapted to the idea that whenever I get a new toy the first thing I do is take it apart)

    You know you're a geek when:

    You're serious considering contacting Dreamworks about doing a movie on "TCP/IP Illustrated Vol 1: The protocols"

    When you're twisting your brain on how to normalize your sister's dairy into the 3rd norm

    When dreaming about how computers will take over the world and you are king of them all

    Steeling your 80-years-old neighbour's scooter and trying to reverse-engineer it's hard-coded speed control system

    You know all the stats of your schools computers. You want me to read them off?? I found them out even though they block it. You know youre a geek when blocks cant stop you.
    All is well when you use Linux. Many problems does it solve. www.goosee.com/puppy to try out a great distro, 55meg live cd iso!

    I tend to say:
    "If it ain't broke, you ain't played with it enough lately."

    You check the forum several times a day to see if anyone has gotten the hardware you want to buy to work with linux.

    You've used more than 10 email accounts at once - all with good reason.

    You feel like shooting yourself in the head when someone refers to the internet as 'that little blue E'.

    When bumperstickers go on your box, not your car.

    You carry a live CD to office cos your boss won't let you reformat your harddisk and install tux!

    (That's actually true in my case!!)

    You know what HTTP, FTP, POP, RAM, ROM, USB, CPU, URL, WYSIWYG, ISP, MIME, ADSL, PPP, IDE, ISDN, ASCII, TCP/IP, and IRQ stand for.

    You expect others to know at least half of those.
