    You have more flavors of Linux installed on your system than names of all your friends!

    YKYGW you're thinking about writing a fanfic of you gathering the Dragon Balls and the crazy adventure that follows.

    You know you are a geek; When you go to purchase a new computer, and the salesman asks you questions, even though you already know what you are looking for- He comments on the one you chose, how very little ram, and you tell him "should be more than enough" and he asks if you use Microsoft Office, and you say no (insert something open-sourced here).
    He asks numerous questions about what types of softwares you will use, and frowns when you dont give him the answer he was looking for- til finally he just says "plain jane huh", to which you reply, "That's a matter of opinion."


    (true stories nearly half a decade ago- I max out the spec nowadays, since its far cheaper.)

    You know you're a geek when the tech support people on the end of the phone throw a fit when you tell them you run Linux.
    Ia! Ia! Ubuntu ftaghn!

    YKYAGW you teach the phone support people how to properly diagnose hardware. (I actually did this with the Dell people-I already figured out exactly what broke when a client dropped their laptop, but they still didn't believe that I knew how to do anything on the computer until I had proven them wrong).
    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.

    ... your programming teacher learns more from you than the class learned from them.

    YKYAGW you wake up before your alarm clock, and you say "Oh boy-more time to work on my computer!" and start the day early, rather than saying "Soooooo....tired......." and falling back asleep.
