Computers are Evil

Posted 2009.04.14 14.13 in Computers/Internet/Technology, Pointless Blather

I’m absolutely exhausted, and the servers and routers and switches and cables are all conspiring against me. They laugh at me when I’m not looking, they’re dropping packets all over the floor and leaking bits down the back of the shelves.

At night they must have little fights — or maybe they’re getting up to something naughty — because the cables all get twisted and knotted up into a big tangle.

I don’t know why they hate me so. I try to keep them happy and well-fed. I only get tempted to pour soda pop onto their CPUs after they’ve been acting up. They started it. 

They’re mean and nasty and evil. Stoopid computers. 🙁

p.s. Next time someone mentions the dust on the server shelves, I’m going to tell them that it’s not dust, it’s all the bits we keep losing from the packet collisions. And I’m going to try and keep a straight face. “Don’t touch it! It’s digital!”
