When you don't want to answer your teacher's question with one word because you're afraid that you will be reported to a moderator.

...When your band director says she can't get the external labtop speakers hooked up to her laptop to show us the SmartMusic program, you then tramble over a bunch of people to get up front, you hook it in the line out on her mac G4 Laptop and you tramble back to the percussion section where you belong..

had this happen yesterday.
~when you overhear someone in an office that you are patroning say that they are having a problem with the computer and you have this overwhelming urge to move them out of the way and fix it.
or better yet...
~when you are really offended by someone saying "he hasn't been using computers that much...he doesn't know anymore than i do" in reference to you giving tech support to a family member.

When you see a real mouse you wonder if it has a scroll button.

You know you're using the computer too much when you read "March" (the MONTH) and thinks that is has something to do with your processor architecture *sigh*

...when you sit in class and get on the school laptop and start changing things around to make it look more like your personal machine.

...When you start going on about how the bloody kids who jack with the system file, and now the machines won't boot in OSX only OS 9.2.. I am not talking about hackers, and I am talking about crackheads who delete files.

Ahem, I remember me being one of them crackheads when I was in highschool (or the Swedish counterpart)... We booted up the 286 (yep, I'm that old ), that we were having computer labs on (well, I think the point was to learn how to use a word processor), with our own bootdisk, and then we deleted autoexec.bat and renamed config.sys to hahaha.sys. Very childish, but hey, we were only 14 Of course we got caught, and were yelled at for some time.
