... when the first thing you check on a event demo-system is the bios.

 

... when you can troubleshoot a hardware-related problem so fast, you feel the need to prolong the analysis to not make it look too easy.

 

... when you open a closet and find stuff you didn't even know you benched before.

 

... when a blue-screen error doesn't make you angry, but falls within expected system behavior.

i remember how the UD9 killed 2 GPUs and the PSU when we tried to go 4 way SLI

 

-UD9:

chepo PSU detected, these noobs are going to learn the hard way

 

fortunately non of us touched the board while the execution, otherwise we'd still being suffering the casualties
