When you realize that you just read 15 pages of " you know you're using the computer too much when" statements...

Oh yeah, if I get in trouble my parents just tell me to bring them my powercord.. and I am sure if I get in trouble now that I have this laptop they will take that from me too.. of course I don't really get in trouble that bad that often.. I usually keep to myself back in my room.. and beleive me being on the computer can keep anyone out of trouble.. Then again I do have a mouth on me, and I am noted for making smart mouth comments, thats when my parents get mad at me..

you know your using the computer too much... when you tell you life stories to a bunch of people on message boards...

Mmm, like some of you said, I found myself typing these into a DOS window:

-ls instead of dir
-cp instead of copy
-mv instead of move
-cd-ing into a drive, eg cd c:
-TAB to autocomplete
-using / instead of \

And one more: trying to log on as root when on someone else's computer.
are you stalking me?

You start recognising computers on ordinary TV programs and comment on what the hardware spec would probably be!
