Instead of getting the phone number of the woman you're chatting up, you ask for her email address...

Talking on the phone seems so primitive...

You sit infront a computer when you are 17 and when you get up and go out(say, nature's calling), your friend is a 'grandpa'...never happened to me though. I think that's when you know you are using too much computer.

i had to evacuate for isabel and on of my main concerns was to back up two of the computers in the house and take the external harddrive and the laptop so that i could have all of the conveniences of home while i was away.
