Little Jerry comes to class and starts throwing paper planes...
Naturally, teacher becomes furious and makes him write:
" I will not throw paper planes in the class"
500 times on the blackboard...
And he goes:

Wow nice --I did the same with a few old 486 boxes and of course with my first PC (IBM Aptiva P 133 16megs win95 when it was replaced with my HP Pavilion win ME) the first 486 ran win 3.1 and the others win 95. But when I was done playing with them I gave them to friends. I gotta do that again -- but now I spend so much time on Unix and Mac command line terminal and Applescript and it's fun!

You know you've been using the computer too much when you want to use the IRC /me third person while conversing out loud and use expressions like "lol" instead of just laughing.

* when you miss your pc(programs) like it could be one of your relatives or your girl(s)

When you go house-sitting (with public transport) and leave your sisters fish, who you promised to look after) behind (he'll be alright a couple of days) in favor of your computer.

When you house-sit and instead of sleeping in the double bed in the bedroom you'd rather sleep on the smallish couch in the computer room.

When you dream about freecell.

When your friend says "you always have been a bit geeky" and the tone she used to say "geeky" comes as a big shock to you because you'd forgotten that normal people don't aspire to geekdom.
