Top 10 signs you may be addicted to IRC.

10. Your service provider calls *you* for tech support.

9. Someone at work tells you a joke, and you say "LOL!"

8. You have ever had a dream about the people in your channels.

7. You have to scroll through your popup menu.

6. You watch T.V. with closed captioning turned on.

5. Your friend Tom tells you something sad on the phone and you say "Awwww, me hugs Tom."

4. You've called out someone else's nick while making love to your husband.

3. You keep begging your friend's to get an internet account so "we can hang out."

2. Three words: carpal tunnel syndrome.

1. You laughed at this list.

[blush] All those apply. This could be a bad sign. But in my defense, my best friend was living in Missouri while I was in California when I was asking her to do that.

Numbers 9, 8, 6, 5, 3 and 1 all apply to me... Mind you, I'm not really even in IRC all that much [Razz] ... Some of those are applicable to people who just spend too much damn time online (is there such a thing?), rather than just IRC users...

It's also quite worrying that I now occasionally get the urge to put emoticons in academic essays [blush] [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

How about...

Nth: You find yourself changing all instances of at to @ (thought that may qualify as a nethack addiction too)

Nth+1: You decide you can write a better IRC client

Nth+2: When you hang out on IRC just so your friends can find you. (yep irc friends)
