lets mak contibutions!

You Might be a hacker if...

You chceck your email from the command line.

You start counting from 0 instead of 1.

You got root.

You buy more than one book on the same programming language because you KNOW that one book has things in it that the other one doesn't.

You can no longer hear your box fans but everyone else can.

You've gone 72 hours without sleep because "this stupid thing SHOULD compile!".

The case hasn't been on your computer since the day you bought it.

When someone mentions "SATAN" you don't think of the devil.

You have a LAN in your living room. (Happy I do)

You tapped your own phone just to see if you could.

You've ever woken up at 3AM with an urgent need to use the bathroom, and on the way back thought, "I'll just check my email real quick".

You've packet-sniffed your school's network.

You've ever answered inapproriatly to the question, "How many languages do you know?"

You get all your news from RSS

You digitally sign all emails, even to people who don't even know what PGP is

You would rather be on IRC than out finding a girlfriend

You spend Saturday nights chatting to your mates on Skype

You have your own PBX, but only have 3 telephones in the whole house

You know the difference between the internet and the web

I'm not sure why I think it should be changed to "You know you're computer literate when", or possibly "You know you're not a noob when"

But then again I'm just tired and cranky and not feeling the sweeping generalizations right now. I'll be back on at 4am to post again. It will probably have something to do with star trek... and bawls... and making your own cat5...

yeah. so.

You know you are not a noob when: you look at a web site and stop seeing it as part of your browser

You know you are not a noob when: you don't allow web sites to run JavaScript

You know you are not a noob when: you stop thinking that your monitor is your computer

You know you are not a noob when: you no longer need a monitor atached to one of your computers

You know you are not a noob when: you relise how bad a thing it is to point the DMZ at your computer

any one else want to add to that?

You know you're a noob when:

You ask a knowledgable person how to do something as the way you do it isn't working, then disregard his advice, keep doing things your own way and curse at your computer for being crap.

You walk away from your computer in a public area while you've got a logged-on session going (mail, eBanking, IRC, whatever).

You think Internet Explorer is The Internet.

Your forum nickname is Panarchy.

You think you're great with computers because you're good at playing some game.

People walk away from you, laughing, when you exploin them how computers work.

Your mom calls you up with a computer problem, asking if you know someone who might be able to help her.

You receive a funny email from someone, and send it on to *EVERYBODY* in your address book, including the person who sent it to you, without using BCC.

You believe a gigabyte is 1.000.000.000 bytes.

You hear about something tech-related discussed on the radio, and decide to send a message to *EVERYBODY* in your address book, again without using BCC, talking about how cool this thing is, without realising that half the recipients aren't techs so won't care, and the other half knew about this 6 weeks ago already. (some of my co-workers are sheep)

You're not worried about DRM.

You prefer your mouse over your keyboard.

You think UPS is a package delivery company.

You completely reinstall Windows every other week because all the trial software you've installed starts complaining about your having to pay and register to keep using it.

You have more than 0 toolbars in your browser.

You put all your private data on a TruCrypt partition, and then forgot the password to it.

Speaking of toolbars, I don't understand why the taskbar wasn't called the shelf, as in window shelf... it may sound stupid, but if you are going to call your fucking OS windows, and have it's logo look like a fucking window... if you want to keep that windows theme going, you should fucking name stuff in the OS similaly to it's damn name. Whats the fucking point in having an OS's damn name stuff at the fucking box?!
