How can you spot that you are working with Software Developers?

Using our coffee machine earlier I couldn’t help but notice that rather than the rather primitive interface saying “milk” it now says “milky milky”. Some unknown person(?) has taken the trouble to understand the bizarre interface and work out how to reprogram it…

Now there are a whole load of jokes about elephants along similar lines of which there are an alarming number (e.g. http://homepage.eircom.net/~cronews/elep/elep.html). But I’ve not heard many observations about what happens when you get beyond a certain concentration of software developers.

I’d be interested in knowing whether anybody else has spotted any other symptoms.
