    • c. A V32 modem with auto-answer.
  8. At the supermarket, the checkout-person is having trouble scanning your box of cornflakes. Do you:
    • a. Run out of the supermarket without your groceries. (You just heard on your scanner that the 6 metre band has just opened up to Europe.)
    • b. Pull out your cellular phone, call IBM Tech Support...

If you answered...

Mostly 'a': You must be a Radio Ham. Your spouse will divorce you, but you will be too wrapped up in a 20 metre band CW contest to notice.

Mostly 'b': You are a Power User. Your spouse will leave you for a Power Lawyer, who will hit you with a "Look 'n' Feel" lawsuit, but you won't know what it is you should have been looking at and feeling.

Mostly 'c': You are a Computer Nerd. Spouse? Are you kidding?

Either way, looks like you'll end up alone. Sobering thought, isn't it?
