    Fill in the blank.....

    You know you're a Cyburbia geek when.....

    you know what only one post every 60 seconds means.

    You check Cyburbia first thing in the morning before even your own email account.

    you tell more secrets to your buds here than many of the people you interact with every day

    you know fellow cyburbia folks real names, dogs/cats names, partners names etc-and you have never met
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Dan let you run it while he was out.

    You consider upgrading your photo suite for board usage. The one you have at work is fine for work, but doesn't cut the mustard for Cyburbia.

    You reply to bTurks posts in your sleep.

    You can count on some of your fellow posters more than family.

    You know more personal things about your fellow posters than family.

    You don't know which is more disfunctional or fun, your board pals or real family.

    The code for Bold and Italic flow like you grew up writing code.

    You begin to miss people here if they are gone a week. However, you haven't heard from your grandmother in a year.

    You move over 500 posts from the old bulletin boards to the forums.

    You've logged on to the forums from 6 different computers in the same weekend.

    You eagerly await the next hapless photo to be photoshopped.

    You spend time in the "who's online" page waiting for someone to post a reply to a thread...any thread.

    More cyburbians have seen your wedding photos than friends and family.

    It has replaced coffee as the first thing you reach for at work.

    You ask Cyburbia members planning-related questions before you would consider asking a co-worker

    Even though you've never met fellow cyburbanites, you have dreams about them.

    Your wife asks more about what happened on Cyburbia than she does your day at work....because it's more interesting.

    You live in fear of the IT police busting you for being logged into Cyburbia during your entire work day...

    You start getting upset when there are no new posts after about a minute.

    I don't think I can add anything that has not already been said

    1) checking from home, on vacation
    2) Like people here more then people you meet face to face.
    3) Asking advice here.
    4) Helping people pick pets.
    5) have had the 60 second thing a few times.
    6) Learned photoshop/illustrator just to be able to play.
    7) During haiku week actually responded to requests in haiku.
    8) Personal messaged people things, completely non planning related, because they thought they might be interested.

    You shock yourself by realizing you have 75 posts in only 2 months. God help me, this new addiction is shaping up like some Alice in Chains song.

    You know that journey mouse is a she.
    You miss muggie, for all of his positivitity.
    You justify that time spent here as it improves your frame of mind when dealing with the public.
    You have stayed after work to follow a thread because the day of posts has been particularily funny or to work on photoshop.

    ...you make jokes to friends about killing kittens, and they stare at you with a strange look on their face.

    You have "what happened on Cyburbia today" stories- and no one else understands them.

    You have a spotless screen, only because you have to clean it after you spew whatever it was you were drinking all over it after reading one of the hilarious posts.

    You spend countless hours looking for the right avatar during a special avatar week.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Let me add another...

    You not only know what it means, but you are desperately posting to be a member of the 1,000 Clube.
