You Know You're Programming Too Long When...

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

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

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

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

When you look for your car keys using: "grep keys/dev/pockets"

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

When you get in the elevator and double-press 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 go to balance your checkbook and discover that you're doing the math in octal.

When you dream in 256 pallettes of 256 colors.

When think to yourself "printf" every time before you talk.

When write "==" while doing math homework.


"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

When you start a letter with <?php and end it with ?>.

When you highlight words and sentences in a text using the <b>, <i> and <u> tags, instead of using a highlighting pen or finding some other way of highlighting text.

People don't? I always count in Hex or Oct.

When thinking about consequences, you think if($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] != "Great") { fDestroy($Enemies); } else { fVictory(); }


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

When you wish you could 'sleep 24000 &'.

When you try to bring a window to the front of something, then you realize that the "something" is a post-it (tm) on your screen.

When you write your code as follows:

(define bull_lang
      (lambda (rudeness)
        (if (eq? rudeness ())
        (display "the bull is over")
          (begin
           (if (eq? rudeness never-ending)
           (delete! all)
         (bull_lang (- rudeness 1)))))))


...in a program which takes up 38 pages (of similar stuff) after 28 hours of work.
