You dream of coding your app/web page, etc. (This actually happened to me more times than I'd like to count. :O)

The laptop I am using is not mine I don't want to spend the money for anything to go with it, unless I get one.. which my second thought was to look for a laptop to run fedora on from ebay, or somthing...

You know that Linux is better than Windoze even though you've never used Linux. (haven't untill recently)

You wonder how many Ghz your brain operates at and how you might overclock it.

You meet an annoying person and think of the proper C code to debug them.

Everything on a shopping list is a reference to an object.

When your brother finally gets time to stop in from out of state and you meet his wife for the fust time. %95 of your conversations were about computers.

You put in apps online for the restuaunt down the road with a NOW HIRING sign visible from your window.
