    For those of you not familiar with a drinking game, think of it like Bingo except that you're not trying to complete a row, you're trying kill all of your brain cells. During your day when any of the following occurs, drink the amount specified. And please, if you must drink around technology, do so responsibly. Such as disabling the texting feature of your phone

    * You reboot.
    Take a sip

    * You close a UAC dialog without reading it.
    Take a sip

    * You ever need to edit the registry.
    Take a drink

    * You move a window just to see what something looks like behind the translucent title bar.
    Windows 7 only (it could apply to Windows Vista users as well but I don't think either of them drink.)
    Take a drink

    * You consider disabling the firewall to fix a problem.
    Take a sip

    * You actually disable the firewall to fix a problem.
    Take a drink

    * You expect to see a computer in the computer browser but it isn't there.
    Take a sip

    * While working on a problem you mumble something about "Linux" or "OS X."
    Take a drink

    * While working on a problem you mumble something about "BeOS."
    Finish your drink (to drown your sorrows)

    * You're asked to find a file that was deleted 6 months ago.
    Take a drink

    * You're asked to install something into "Office" or "Word" or "Excel."
    Take a sip

    * A user saves something to a floppy disk.
    Take a drink

    * You save something to a floppy disk.
    Finish your drink

    * You retire a parallel printer.
    Take a drink

    * You replace a dot-matrix printer ribbon.
    Finish your drink (and take an extra sip as a bonus for working in government)

    * You bang your head for hours on a strange problem before accidentally figuring out, days later, that it was DNS.
    Take a drink

    * You wait for more than 30 seconds to move a single file to the recycle bin.
    Take a sip

    * You use the network connection diagnostic tool and it actually fixes something.
    Take a drink

    * While typing furiously in one application a dialog box pops up from another application and is suddenly dismissed by one of your keystrokes before you can read it.
    Finish your drink (to drown your fear about what you may have just done)

    Great stuff.

    That's probably why all network admins are alcoholics.
