    You know you've been programming too long when...

    ... something compiles on the first try... and you get suspicious.

    ... you code a program to draw your graph for math class, because you can't find your ruler

    ... you know how to set the 'act as a part of the operating system' priviledge in Win2K

    ... you suspect people not to work with your programs if they don't report bugs and don't want new features implemented

    ... you come to work greeting people with 'how's the database' instead of 'how are you'

    ... you get a tech joke list and laugh about every single one

    ... even if you knew them already

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    ...when:

    - your friends have access to your privates;

    - your children know more than you do.
