You know you've been on the computer too much when...

Just little things we do on a computer so much we end up trying to apply them in real life...

You know you've been on the computer too much when...

  1. When asked about a bus schedule, you wonder if it is 16 or 32 bits.
  2. When you are counting objects, you go "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D...".
  3. When you dream in 256 pallettes of 256 colors.
  4. When your wife says "If you don't turn off that damn machine and come to bed, then I am going to divorce you!", and you chastise her for for omitting the "else" clause.
  5. You try to sleep, and think sleep(8 * 3600); /* sleep for 8 hours /
  6. When you are reading a book and look for the scroll bar to get to the next page.
  7. When after fooling around all day with routers etc, you pick up the phone and start dialling an IP number...
  8. When you get in the elevator and double-click the button for the floor you want.
  9. When not only do you check your email more often than your paper mail, but you remember your {network address} faster than your postal one.
  10. When you look for an icon to double-click to open your bedroom window.
  11. When you go to balance your checkbook and discover that you're doing the math in octal.
  12. When you look for a trash can icon for throwing garbage.

  1. When you're thinking of what smilie to use to show what you're thinking...

  2. My friend asked:
    So, what's the URL to your house then?

    Later that day, the same friend said:
    Damn, I wish life had a refresh button.

    He spends tooooo much time on his computer.
