I recommend a large loyal dog (particularly a Rotteweiler) to lay under your desk. The bonus is that in the winter, he is useful for keeping your feet warm.

#34. You can navigate your bios menu with your eyes shut.

WoW playing doesnt make you a geek, it just means you have way to much free time.

Ive got a dog but its a wimpy one it likes everyone so that doesnt do me anygood.

Although the apple mac keyboard is great way to keep it secure, you can actually watch peoples head near explosion when they read "Press Ctrl Alt Delete to begin". Ive seen some people actually spend a half hour looking for a delete key, call in the person next door, then the person across the corridor, oh its hilarious when done properly, trick is to let people see you using it so they figure there must be a way to do it, them not noticing the standard keyboard tucked down the side of the desk. The mac keyboard trick was the only useful thing i learned from high school computing, ah the days spent correcting the teachers mistakes and laughing at "recent" text books.

dsenette:
You made me laugh just now. I drive an old Oldsmobile, and sometimes the interior lights won't shut off. (It's not a faulty door switch) so I have to open the hood, disconnect the battery, wait a minute, reconnect and then reset the clock inside...in effect, "reboot" the car to reset the computer (like clearing CMOS) so that the electrical system works properly again.

Kat: What do you do when the tel line is dead? Do you have a cell phone adapter?

My husband came home one day all excited about some remote mountain property for sale. No running water, no electricity, no phone, we can make our own soap, shoot our own meat and cut our own wood. Then he added "I'll hook up a generator so that you can get on the internet, and we'll get a satellite!" Whew! I was fine with "roughing it" until I remembered the "offline" part....LOL

Lol, numerous times i have stopped myself before actually saying lol in public.

Ive managed to stop myself from learning sci fi languages for the most part(obviously i know a few klingon phrases who doesnt), elvish, dwarvish, numenorean and rohirim also had to avoid learning but i did pick upa little after like the 14th time of reading the lord of the rings.

Being off line never, i have a 1gig usb pen full of all i need to get any computer anywhere up and going online. (hidden away among the various utilities and apps is all the work for uni the pen is really for.

which leads to
#39 never leave the home without at least a usb pen preferably a laptop or other mobile computing device to connect to the net from anywhere.
