You Know You're Too Serious About Computers When . . .


You comment, while watching a sunset, that the image would be enhanced with 10% more magenta and a higher resolution.

Someone tells you about a great new program and you're very disappointed to find that it's on TV.

While driving down the street, you are confused by the numbers on the houses --- they do not appear to be legitimate WWW addresses.

You find it easier to check the National Weather Service website than to simply look out the window.

When you start using phrases like: Hungry.must-eat.food.now@home.com.

You call in sick because you found a great new website.

You can type your top 10 favorite websites' URLs , by heart.

Your fingers quit moving because you've been online for 36 hours.

Your ISP suggests you try a competitor, because you're exceeding 300 hours a month connect time.

On the way home from work, you use your portable and cellular phone in your car, to reprogram a Tomahawk missile, in flight, and redirect it to take out the joker in the Cadillac who cut you off.

Your desk collapses under the weight of your computer peripherals.

You try to press Alt-F4 to close your car window.
