firecat: toaster from red dwarf (talkie toaster)
[personal profile] firecat
My computer was acting up every which way for the past week. Since it's done that on and off for months, I bit the bullet and ordered a new one. It hasn't given me any trouble since then.

If I put my ear very close to the screen I can hear it whispering "Pleez don't send me awaaaaaaaaaaaaay."

I guess that's better than "I'm sorry Dave..."

Always the way --- the minute you buy a replacement, the old one starts working, is found, etc.

It seems to work for toasters also. At least, we seem to be able to keep the current toaster limping along by threatening it with a replacement every once in a while.

My own favourite example is the component of Second Life viewer software that identifies the moment to crash that will be the most frustrating, disruptive, and mood-killing....
