You know you’re an AVS forum addict if…

- You are upset your post count reduced due to threads getting deleted.
- You actually KNOW your post count
- You have more friends on AVS then in the real world

...when the site is down you keep hitting refresh hoping it will be back "early".

...you have AVS as your home page. Not news or or wether but AVS.

...you worry about other major members when they don't post for a few days. Should I call 911. So and so is missing

...you stay at work longer because no one is competing with you for computer time.
...in real life, you keep trying to make conversation by bringing up common avs topics.
...you ask your nephew who works at best buy everytime you see him which is selling better, blu or red?
...everyone's jaw drops when seeing your home theater for the first time, and all you can think of is how inadequate it is.
...you start keeping track of events by if they happened before or after the paramount announcement.

You smell the baby but stall her out cause you got 5 tabs open and you want to post but you must read the thread first.

You contaplate on going on the Maury show to see if theses are yor kids, cause they are disturbing you.

I don't goto the office because there working on the wirless and I cant LOOK at ( AVS )email.

after the last read you tell your self, Okay i'm going to bed only to Find your self lighting up another cigarette and hitting the refresh/F5 button on Blu-ray/HD DVD areas to read more because you need reasurement that you format will survive.

You turn off all HD equipment cause you are not able to concentrate.

You tell the wife that you'll be up in a min.....

-------------------------------------------------------

Funny my wife just called and told not to be on AVS when she gets home...

Guess what.

Blu ray is the best Blah, blah, blah.

LOL, so true.
Here's my contribution:
...everyone who visits wants to know what kind of equipment you use and as you reel off all the components and their eyes glaze over, you realize a).TMI and b). they've never heard of any of the brand names you have. Only your peeps at AVS know about Anthem, Oppo, Axiom, etc, etc.

We should number all of these and when we catch someone doing one of the, we can just say, "guilty of #22."

Now, what is the number for posting close to midnight....
