    I snapped this pull from a Swedish newspaper the other day.
    It's a poll where they ask how people react when their computer crasches.

    Let me translate it for ya my friends.


    Green: = Hits the keyboard
    Red: = Screams
    Blue: = Hits the monitor
    Orange: = Hits the mouse
    Dark Blue: = Kicks the actual computer : omg:
    Brown: = Doesn't punish the computer
    Pink: = My computer never crasches

    That is some sick behaviour.. Ok then, I may have hit my keyboard sometime long ago but not due to crasches but due to an early death in some game.. :thumbs do
    Besides I did manage to repair the keyboard a few days later when I found the tab key.. :thumb:

    Good one Tweaker, but, except for the pink....i've done all the above although i've only made the mistake of hitting the monitor 1 time. It's called Purcussive Maintainance, the other option is trashing that annoying neighbor instead:rofl:
    Happiness isn't something you experience; it's something you recall.

    when i get pissed off at my computer, i usually either throw the keyboard (then search for pieces), or i rip out the plugs (carefully unscrewing the monitor and printer of course) and then shove it into the closet, along with the monitor, keyboard, peripherals and other crap so that i can have a little more workspace to calm down in.

    Although ive also been known to throw a chair across the room once or twice or thrice.

    Computers Suck. I think we should all just throw them out and go back to the abbacus, slide rule, a pencil and a few pads of paper.

    why are all of you getting mad at inanimate objects? :confused: what did it ever do to you?

    when my computer actually does crash, i just sit down and figure out what went wrong. I rather enjoy the process, i usually learn something from it.

    Now when I can't fix it I get a wee bit ticked, but that's a different story
    :devil:

    I guess I'll have to go with Brown for lack of a better one :laugh:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I'd have to take brown myself but on those rare occassions when I do get one I just open it up and clean the dust bunnies out.
