    Pen?

    sure, even more
    * you know the square root of 65536 is 256 without having to do the math.
    You dont?
    * you consider 1024 and 256 "nice round numbers"
    sure, 1024=1 and 256=1/4
    * you see a good-looking girl and you DESPERATELY want her e-mail address so you can get to know her.

    * every time someone says "I like Macs" you get mad and shout out "So you only go for the looks, do you? Superficial guy! The inner qualities are what's important, not the looks! Beauty is only skin-deep!"

    * when asked if you have more than one hard drive, you answer "In which computer?"

    They are not incompatible, I'll go with both
    * you get angry when someone says they own a new vid card.
    No, but I want pics...

    I call this a well spend time...

    * you have the Linux Penguin sitting on your monitor
    * ... and you know the penguin's name.

    your computer costs more and runs better than your car - Car $1300 Computer - $2000. Yep.

    you consider 1024(2^10) and 256(2^8 ) "nice round numbers" - I learned to subnet the hard way. I know all the way up to 16384 without thinking about it.

    the number of computers in your house exceeds the number of relationships you've had in your lifetime - It's sad because it's true. I don't date much.

    you have a PC for every person in the house, and still think you need one more. What if one goes down!? - It's just me and I've had at most 9 boxes running in this house at once.

    you can talk to your computer without being sarcastic or raising your voice - I have a better working relationship with my computer than most of my extended family.

    Nice find. Funny stuff.

    Two more computers and the first line is true...

    I actually prefer talking to my computer than any of my siblings. When my computer begs for money I know I am going to benefit. When my siblings "borrow" money, I might as well enjoy the pretty colors from burning it as that is the last I will see of it and will get more entertainment form the fire...

    I do raise my voice at the poor computer sometimes. It's too bad too, since unlike humans the volume of your voice does not affect its speed.

    I also have. If it can help you, I can add that I probably have a better life then most of my "non-computer" friends, cause I get the best of both worlds.

    In fact, I came to the conclusion that the abillity of a computer to crash is directly proportional to your voice volume and or angry level

    I've actually done this before. At Best Buy, where my dad works (He's a high-up position, though). I was wandering around the floor when my dad wanted to see if I could make a sale, and it just so happened I was wearing his old Best Buy polo. So I managed to talk somebody in to buying a videocard (It was nice too, BFG 7900, when the 7900 was second best). My dad was impressed at how I managed to do it (The guy wanted a 6600GT or whatever, I told him it was real bad and to buy the 7900 and he wouldn't regret it) so I got 20$ =D
