On Bragging

I was browsing bash the other day, and came across a quote that touched on one of my pet peeves. (For those who don't know, bash is a quote database, mostly of things said on IRC.) First, the quote:

\<digidug> i love it when geeks take every chance they get to brag about their hardware

\<digidug> so i was lying in my bed and my DUAL ATHLON 2GHZ SERVER was keeping me awake with its 5 SUPER HIGH THROUGHPUT FANS so i went downstairs and played a SPECIAL SUPER BETA VERSION OF QUAKE 3 (FOR WHICH I AM A BETA TESTER) on my PLEXIGLASS-COVERED TRANSPARENT TOWER WITH FIVE INTEL PENTIUM 4'S RUNNING A CUSTOMIZED VERSION OF LINUX

\<digidug> so i didn't get much sleep last night

So, yeah. I find this extremely annoying. Don't be all non-chalant, it's generally unbecoming of human beings. If you want to tell me something, just tell me.

OK, now that I've got that out of my system...
