    310) you register just to post on this thread
    311) You install Alpha Centauri onto a USB flash disk to play AC on public computers (doing that right now)
    312) Since 1999, you have huge gaps in your life that correspond to periodically rediscovering Alpha Centauri.
    313) You play MP Alpha Centauri
    314) You and your friends pool your money to buy a copy of AC when it comes out, just because of the demo.
    315) You have a burned copy of the original AC, then proceed to get two more legal copies... just in case.
    316) Despite the fact AC doesn't need a CD to run
    317) You buy an entire 5 game package just to get Alien Crossfire
    318) Despite knowing that it's avaiable on Underdogs as abandonware
    319) When playing Civ 2/3, you keep thinking 'that would be a good place for an ocean city'
    320) You keep telling your Civ 3 workers to drill boreholes
    321) You wonder why Alpha Centauri keeps going into 256 colour mode, but are too busy playing to find out why.
    322) You have been doing that for the last 7 years
    323) When studying international trade, you keep wondering when energy credits will show up
    324) You buy all the Alpha Centauri novels
    325) And read them
    326) And try to recreate the situations and timeline in-game.
    327) You have to supress the urge to classify people you meet as 'Drones, Workers, Talents, Empaths, and Perfects'
    328) You call call a fighter a needlejet
    329) You expect monohull ships to outrun hovercraft
    330) You try to connect a network cable into the ground and send it the sum total of the Internet.

    346. You find it funny that you're actually older than Zakharov, Morgan and Yang.
    347. You find it funny that your youngest brother is two years older than Zakharov. (Heh heh... could you see them playing video games together?)
    348. You take notice of the Human Genome Project (is it already 100% or are they still mapping? The figures always slip my mind...)
