When there's no more space on the tables for another computer...

When you are reading and taking notes at the same time you look for the mouse to copy and
paste--only to realize that what you are reading is a hard cover book and you are taking notes with a
pen and paper. Also, books don't have spacebars to turn the page.

when my fav. cmd is:
slapt-get -update -upgrade
which I type 3 times a day.

when my next fav. is:
finger kernel.org
which I have set up as a cron job that runs every 6 hours and emails me when something
changes.

Or when my homepage is Linuxquestions.org

When you realize all of sudden you can't write. You are just not used to write with pen and paper cauz you haven't used them for months. Only the keyboard. - Happened to me - Back to school new year and the pen just doesn't feel right in hand. That's the morning.

In the afternoon...
Looking at the bottom right corner of the chalk board expecting to see a digital clock....

That was me after each summer break even before I had a computer.

You know you've been using the computer too much, when you think of how you could write a computer program to do your homework more quickly and more accurately for you., especially higher-level mathematics classes.

When you already know what trickykid's response is going to be to my previous statement

Trickykid-

"You have violated rule #434359756739B, it was agreed on as part of a fifty page book of rules. Please die, unimaginative.

-Regards.

Pretty good, eh?
