Back in the day, when we were still in low triple-digit topic numbers, we enumerated the Top 1,000 Signs You're Addicted to Your Calculator. It was so successful that we followed it with New Top 1024 Signs You're Addicted to Your Calculator. Since then, we tried to start a Top 1,000 Signs You're Addicted to Technology, but it never made much headway. I propose a Top 1,024 Signs You're a Cemetechian. By Cemetechian, I don't mean the fact that you're actually on the website ("(1) You know the HTML code for the shade of red in the Cemetech logo") but that you represent the qualities of technology obsession, calculator enthusiasm, and general intelligence and maturity that we espouse. I'll start us off, let's see if we can get to 1,024!

1) You own several graphing calculators
2) You know how to program all of your graphing calculators
3) You know several or many programming languages, and you actually know them well enough to whip up an application
4) You scoff at people who claim to have mastered a language after writing a Hello World program in that language
5) You consider your online programming colleagues a regular part of your social circle
6) Dreaming in code is not an uncommon occurrence for you
7) Stories about your childhood tinkering often start with you taking something apart and end with it never really working again
8 ) Luckily, you've outgrown that.... Rolling Eyes
9) Multiple monitors are a must for your computer, even though you espouse the advantages of a 96x64 monochrome screen
10) You are frequently referred to as a machine that turns coffee into code
11) You enjoy any of techno, dance, dubstep, symphonic rock, or classical music. In fact, you probably have your own eclectic mix of music that you like that makes others raise an eyebrow.
12) You've ever carried around a laptop/netbook as an MP3 player
13) You don't give up on gadgets that break, and at least one of your electronics is held together with solder and duct tape.
14) Someone on the internet is WRONG! I cannot sleep until this disgraceful state is repaired.
15) lol
