I don't know what number htis is on, but:

When you memorize digits of a certain irrational number but can't explain why.

When you would rather watch Star Wars or Star Trek than reality shows.

When you cannot last an entire conversation without mentioning computers.

Edit:
When you know more three and four-letter acronyms than you care to count.

When you spent a weekend making a program to translate things like this:

You know you're a geek when the little time you spend OFFline is used trying to figure out how to inject caffeine directly into your veins. :tazz:


Johanna...if my phone line dies....you may as well just shoot me. Of course, I have about 20 or so of my fellow geeks from around here programmed into my cell. So I can at least CALL them to get the latest scoop from around here. :)

You know you are a geek when you say "What the..." everytime you don't understand something.

So... What the... mate? ^^

Also, I don't take the time to find out how to inject caffine directly into my viens, I just drink coke, pepsi, coffee, etc. :tazz:

Oh!

You know you are a geek when you get so hyper on caffine yet you just sit infront of your computer. :)

50692072756C6573212121 = Pi Rules!!! in hex. I made a program that translates an English string (such as Pi Rules!!!) into ASCII base 10, base 2 (binary), and base 16 (hexadecimal) and from any one of the integer bases into the other ones and English. I'm not quite sure why I did it. I saw that Microsoft VisualStudio Express Editions were free, so I got all of them, and tried it with VisualBasic because I had a class on it last year.

Edit: I just read what I wrote, and I think it will just confuse everyone more. It just translates between English, ASCII base 10, 2, or 16 from one to the other three.

You know you should get off the VB addiction right now, i started getting into coding and had to stop, i got addicted im trying to forget it know i used to sit and right silly little programs and find novel ways to integrate funny little modules into my larger programs for school.

Caffeine, who needs caffiene when you can have the adreniline rush of zombie killing in quake or hun bashin in CoD, and at lans when you have the all night adreniline we drink the beer to keep us chill. Caffeine is good but i prefer more natural PC based alternatives.

Will switch to caffeine totally as soon as they make a USB tea and coffee maker, till then im an all cyborg PC addict no non PC based products where possible.

I might play twenty minutes of quake to get me goin a bit.

#51 you know you are a real geek when staff at electronics stores dont like talking to you.

Apparently working in an electronics shop instantly qualifies someone in the latest hardware, who would have figured.

lol, oh i could have got worse on the klingon, i need to get a klingon translator(do you think babel fish does klingon, if it does the entire sig is goin klingon.

Who doesnt like that car, i may be a geek but i can still appreciate quite literally the best road car in the world(it can beat F1 cars its amazin W16 engine 1001bhp and it looks amazin) well you get the picture. I have to have some non geek like and i picked that car(i like planes as well but only for the technology really so its kinda geeky)

Im such a geek its not funny, i read this and most of these kind of threads a few apply to you, no its most of them.
