Recognise yourself? (I won’t name anybody, but…)

Popular demand (well, just Pan) forces me to post another joke. Here it is…

You know you are an Internet Junkie when…

  • When asked to give your address, your answer begins with http://
  • Instead of calling you to dinner, your spouse sends an e-mail.
  • You chat with your fingers, not your mouth.
  • You use Netscape 4.72, and you check every week whether version 4.73 was released.
  • You know the difference between Java and Javascript.
  • Most of your friends have an @ in their names.
  • In order to watch BBC you move to
  • On your business card the e-mail appears before the phone number.
  • You find yourself typing “com” after every period when using a word
  • You check your mail. It says “no new messages”. So you check it again.
  • You can perfectly imitate the sound pattern of your modem connecting to your ISP.
  • You can think of nineteen keystroke symbols that are far more clever than :-).
  • You are told about a new program, and you are disappointed to find that it is a TV program.
  • Not only do you check your email more often than your paper mail, but you remember your network address faster than your postal one.
  • You wake up at 3 a.m. to go to the bathroom and stop to check your e-mail on the way back to bed.
