    You know you're a geek when you go to Ubuntuforums.org and notice that the Community Cafe games are up and running again, and get up and repeatedly shout "YES! YES!"
    I'm not a PC, I'm a human, and using Ubuntu was my idea.

    You sit in a bar and think to yourself:

    Code:
    for (girl = friendly; girl.hotness() == 9; ++beer)
    
    girl.engage(conversation.txt);

    When you laugh at this:

    A SQL query walks into a bar. He approaches two tables and says, Mind if I join you?
    It must be old but I hadn't heard it till yesterday
    Meet me at the pier at midnight. We will stare out at the ocean one last time..

    You expect others to know at least half of those.
    HTTP: HyperText Transfer Protocol, Port 80, used to get on the Internet

    FTP: File Transfer Protocol, Ports 20 & 21, used to transfer files to or from another system or network

    POP: Post Office Protocol (version 3), Port 110, used to receive mail, but not download it like you can with IMAP4

    RAM: Random Access Memory, determines how fast the system's programs run and how much memory to be used

    ROM: Read-Only Memory, a file format that doesn't allow you to write or execute the file, merely read/view it

    USB: Universal Serial Bus, external devices such as thumb drives (aka flash drives), external hard disk drives, and other external peripherals.

    CPU: Central Processing Unit, the "brain" of the computer, determines how fast startup and other processes are (determined by the type of processor such as Intel or AMD Turion)

    URL: Universal Resource Locater, website links for example

    WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get, used for programs such as Dreamweaver in web development/design

    ISP: Internet Service Provider, the provider of your Internet (Cox Cable, Digital Subscriber Line, and Verizon FiOS)

    MIME:

    ADSL: Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line, implementation of DSL where hte upload and download speeds are different

    PPP: Point-to-Point Protocol, the protocol used with dial-up connections to the Internet. The fuctions that it uses are: Error Control, Security, and Dynamic IP Addressing, as well as the support for multiple protocols

    IDE:

    ISDN: Integrated Services Digital Network, A telecommunications standard that is used to digitally send voice, data, and vieo signals over the same lines.

    ASCII:

    TCP/IP: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, Transport Layer (Layer 4), connection-orientated, a system that allows packets to be transfered and to make sure they get to their destination as well as check for errors
