1. You know you are a geek when you have a box of "spare parts", cords, cables. adapters, vid cards and modems etc and you can almost always find what you need in that box.

2. You know you are a geek when you don't leave the house without a small screwdriver and your flash drive in your pocket or purse.

3. You know you are a geek when you painstakingly unplug everything from the back of your tower, sort the cords neatly, plug it all back in and it's the same rat's nest it was when you started.

4. You know you are a geek when you have a back up dial up account in case your broadband service is offline.

5. You know you are a geek when you don't call it "naptime", you tell the kids they need rebooted.

6. You know you are a geek when you know eight different ways to perform the exact same task in XP.

7. You know you are a geek when you get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, and check your email.

8. You know you are a geek when you can recognize your own IP address.

9. You know you are a geek when you can picture the layout of a motherboard in your head, but can't find your car keys.

10. You know you are a geek when ANYONE you are even remotely acquainted with has a computer problem, your phone rings, or you get 7 frantic emails in a row.

#24 you know your a geek when you read this thread and come to the realisation that you do all those things.

#25 you know you are a computer geek when you can get excited about the latest core type from AMD.

#26 you know you are a geek when you get the shakes if you havent visited your favourite tech support site in over a day.

#27 you know you are a geek when you start refering to your PC as a person, calling it "ma baby" or "ma darlin" and take fits of rage whenever anyone but yourself uses it without prior written permission in triplicate signed and dated by yourself and two witnesses.

Ummm, you give permission for someone to even breathe on your personal computer? Touch the keyboard? Nah, you're not a real geek. :tazz:

#28 You know you're a Geek when you rent your favorite DVD movie (online of course), but you would much rather watch it on your 19" flat panel than on the 27" TV in the living room..

NO of course not, no one has asked for permission yet, i think they know its pointless, although i think they sneak in when im away. Only solution i can find is carrying the mouse with me and plugging in an old apple keyboard, lets see them log on without a delete key. Of course they dont get near my actual keyboard, that has its own special hiding place.

If only i could get a nuclear powered death drone to keep watch, but i can only dream, PC security isnt all anti viruses you know. Sentry gun and fingerprint scanner are my next case mods. hehheheheh. Its going to have to be a BB gun with poison dipped pellets we arent allowed real guns off the range in the UK it sucks how do they think i can defend ma baby.

Watching things on TVs , what a laugh, my lovely monitor going unused never.
