IJMC Real Men Don't Program...I Hope.

                IJMC - Real Men Don't Program...I Hope.

You know, a good friend of mine just got email access (again) today. He 
seems to think I'm going to spend lots of time replying to the email he 
sent me (maybe next week, when I have time to reply to email!). Instead, 
to satiate his self-proclaimed need for entertainment, I have placed him 
on the IJMC list where he can read my drol on a daily basis. Spend lots 
of time indeed! Now who's the master! <grin>                       -dave

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build
bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce
bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning." 
                                                         Rich Cook. 

You are feeling yourself as a real programmer when...

When asked about a bus schedule, you wonder if it is 16 or 32 bits.

When you are counting objects, you go "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D...".

When you dream in 256 pallettes of 256 colors.

When your wife says "If you don't turn off that damn machine and come to
bed, then I am going to divorce you!", and you chastise her for for
omitting the "else" clause.

You try to sleep, and think
     sleep(8 * 3600);

When you are reading a book and look for the scroll bar to get to the
next page..

When after fooling around all day with routers etc, you pick up the phone
and start dialling an IP number...

When you get in the elevator and double-click the button for the floor
you want.

When not only do you check your email more often than your paper mail,
but you remember your {network address} faster than your postal one.

When you look for a icon to double-click to open your bedroom window.

When you go to balance your checkbook and discover that you're doing the
math in octal.

When you look for a trash can icon for throwing garbage.
