I feel your pain

Paula and I were at the mall the other day and as we were walking out another couple was coming towards us, into the mall.  Just inside the door the man stopped short and turned to the woman with a look like she’d just kicked his dog… twice… with big, heavy boots:

“Three hours?!? In here?  What do you need that for?”

She ignored him and just kept walking as he wilted and sulked after her into the mall.

Would that be considered a hardware or a software problem?

A friend e-mailed me…



[My Wife’s] crt stopped working so I took a look around making sure everything was still plugged in, etc., Then I took a look on top where the cat likes to sit on the cooling vents to keep warm and found a pile of cat barf. After removing the monitor I found liquid had traveled from the top to the bottom, shorting out the crt.


I would have sent a picture of the problem but the dogs ate the barf.
