When you smash your fist through your monitor yelling "YOU B!TCH, YOU B!TCH"..... wait a minute... that's when you've been drinking too much.

When you spent the whole night trying to fix network stuff and then you look at the clock and think:"Gosh, 3:30 P.M! I should have met my GF at 1:30 P.M... Ok, let's call her and say that I'm very busy to go out today."
(Yeah...I did that)

*it's the ROOM window, not the one on your monitor
happens to me every time - like this time - it's 6am...

When you spend a year and a half of your life driving to the town dump every weekend looking for spare computer parts so that you can spend an entire weekend building this.

I have no life...

When you are wondering what's the big deal if your best friend hangs himself, it's just rebooting him.

When you think you've got tinnitus, but it's just that constant humming from all your cooling fans.

Bummer dude.

Not to get off topic, but should I be offering congratulations on your marriage?

If you'd like, its not mandatory And its still *almost* a year away Thanks for the 'grats

I proposed on my bday last Xmas eve but I didn't post, I felt a little selfconscious about it.

I can sort of understand about the laptop thing...but right now we're planning a honeymoon at a resort where everything is paid and all you do is eat, lie on the beach and sleep for 2 weeks...so I figured that I'd DEFINITELY find some time to fiddle on the laptop (heck, I figured she was bringing hers!)...but alas, it is not to be...

Mind you, since it IS our honeymoon, I wont complain TOO much

If that is all you do on your honeymoon then I will be quite disapointed with you.
