How to know you are a computer buff?

If you wonder wether you are a computer buff or not, please check for the signs listed below, the more signs you posses the closer you are to geekdom.
I share quite a few of them, and some which are freakishly uncommon and not listed below, like a few times i had HTML,PHP & JavaScript dreams.

  • When asked about a bus schedule, you wonder if it is 16 or 32 bits.
  • When counting objects, 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D..
  • At the departmental store, you check to see if a kilogram is 1024 grams, a litre is 1024 mls.
  • When you dream, you are going to dream in 256 palettes of 256 colors.
  • When your wife says "If you don't turn off that damn machine and come to sleep, then I am going to divorce you!",you are going to scream at her for omitting the "else" clause.
  • You try to sleep, and think : sleep(8 * 60 * 60); /* sleep for 8 hours */
  • When you are reading a book, you would look for the scroll bar to get to the next page.
  • If you want to call somebody you pick up the phone and start dialling an IP number...
  • You are going to look for an icon to double-click, to open your bedroom window.
  • When you go to balance your check book, you would discover that you'll be doing the math in octal.
  • You would look for a trash can icon to throw garbage.
  • When you get in the elevator you would double-click the button for the floor you want to go.
Do let me know how close you found yourself to geekdom.
