    You work on your website when you can't sleep.
    You have google analytics installed on a website that gets less than 1000 visits a month.
    You care what web browser you use
    You care how standards compliant your web browser is
    You hate flash intros on websites and push the skip button as soon as you find it
    you hate that when you search for your website's domain name without the .com or whatever else someone's forum profile comes up first. :mad:
    You prefer to hand code links and images into a CMS's wysiwyg editor.

    The desktop always has at least: 'picture 1.png' and 'picture 2.png' where you've taken a screenshot of something to *ahem* borrow

    Most due, however they're slightly inaccurate as they count most bot traffic. Analytics is the most accurate one I've used. Then again, you could be using the MT one which looks pretty neat! :)

    ...when you attempt to make a living off it.
    ...when you argue with friends whether coda or espresso is better.
    ...when you can't design on someone elses computer because your work flow is all messed up. have a folder on your computer with 100s of inspirational designs.

    Or the IT people make you use Internet Exploder:D or your mom/dad uses internet bomber

    You call IE internet exploder or bomber because it messes up on lots of sites

    - You use MacVim instead of Coda because Coda is 99% garbage that nobody really needs.
    - You like to view the source code of pages you happen to visit
    - W3 Validator is your home page
    - You run pages you happen to visit through the W3 Validator
    - does not validate, with 136 errors and 67 warnings
    - You have links to your own web design company in your signature
    - The only DTD you use is XHTML 1.1
    - You get mad when you see pages that use tables for layout
