You know you've been spending to much time on the computer when...

Let's get a list started.

    when you realize that you haven't slept for 3 days, and that making your own operating system* isn't as easy as the little, purple gnomes told you.

    *freakyos is still due out when its done. i just need a little more insomnia, thank you.

    When you notice how geek structure you have only when you get robbed...

    when you skip most of the meals of the day everyday staying online.. and don't even notice that

    when most of the people to who you talk every day are not in your country

    when it's easier to use a messenger than talk to the other people "offline"

    when you life become "ONLINE" and "OFFLINE"

    when your life becomes "ONLIFE" and "OFFLIFE" (meaning the same as online, offline)

    When you don't know the names of most your names, you just use the nicks...

    <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    When you go to Paris for 4 days only to see apple expo.. and one morning there notice your wardrobe is probably more boring than Steve's.. you go to have a look on the clothes at La Defence... ahaha! i found apple scented profumes <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" /> jaguar underwear and a small black toy jaguar ... ahaha! now these last things on this are maybe when you are using too much your mac ..

    Well parfume, profume whatever way you write it in English. Sorry my head must still be shaken by a £$%&=&%$ twat that stole my purse in Paris yesterday.

    An Apple scent i meant...

    Even worse:

    You say to yourself that you'll stop and go to bed in just a few more minutes but when "a few minutes" have passed, the sun's already rising and you've got a a full 8-hour work day ahead of you.

    Or you start using the phrase "sleep is for the weak!"

    When you evaluate whether have sex with somebody (ie you have been more or less requested to) or do anything with your computer... and choose the computer. Even an excel document...

    I did the math and on average (that means somtimes more and somtimes less) I was on the computer literally mind you 50% of the week.

    Work (mon-wed,fri) = 40hrs

    Nights (afterwork) = 11hrs

    Day Off (thurs) = 13hrs

    Wkends = 20hrs


    Total = 84


    ...when you spend more time on the computer, then eating and sleeping combined

    ...when you decide sleep is less important then your computer time

    ...when you find yourself checking AI every 15min to see if there are any new replys to your thread and others that you were reading

    ...when you dont get off AI for the same reason as above
