Alright. Everyone that's ever used a computer of any kind has had some problem with one at some time. Here's your chance to let out all your frustrations about the technological wonder we all have a love/hate relationship with.

"The problem with computers is, they always do what you tell them to do."

-some bumper sticker I saw on the wall of the computer room in 8th grade.

I dunno man.......didn't windows 2000 or something crash while he was in the middle of demonstrating it as the next new thing to "those who invest money," or something? I thought I heard som'n like that!

I absolutely hate it when hardware dies.
For instance, let's say you have purchased a certian HARD DRIVE, and it DIES.
That sucks!
Or maybe you've bought a CD WRITER and it BITES IT.
That also SUCKS!
Or, quite possibly, you're using a school computer to do a FINAL PROJECT and the COMPUTER MONITOR FRIES.
This also SUCKS!

My rant is all the stuff I wrote when I was 12 is on a big, huge disk that no computer will take anymore.

You know, I spend all this money on this big plastic box and it don't even keep my beer cold.

I do like the automatic cup holder though.

Yeah, I can't find anywhere to play my huge collection of laserdiscs, either.

For xach, it seems I must mention that this last bboard post was written in context with the previous Amity post reguarding outmoded technology.

For a second there I thought this post was entitled "COMPUTER PANTS." Does your computer have pants? Or maybe pantaloons...

what really bites is when you are in the middle of downloading an awesome song, and have like 2 minutes to go before its complete, and your computer shutsdown and restarts, while you sit there staring at it dumbfoundedly.

I am currently paying 45 dollars per month for my cable modem services. It doesn't work. I know why. The cable company doesn't. Although I suppose this is a rant on the stupidity of people, it has to do with my computer, and greatly impairs my ability to be online, ever. GRAR! -->Jamie

The Logitec Cordless Click Optical Mouse: a great invention! Allowing users to do mindless things like stand 45 feet from your computer (and keyboard) and move the mouse around the screen. A marvelous tool, until the batteries die, and you have none to replace it at 3am, and you can not navigate around your PC to finish the paper you were working on, or save it! ARGG!!

well just yesterday my sound died on me... in the middle of my school report, my computer freezes and starts making this humming noise (apparently it was the speakers humming). i use the emergency shutdown, turn it back on, and with just my luck after i just got a new soundcard, it died on me... (what made me mad is that i just bought a new one and plus i was just about done with my report too!)
grr... it seems the new computers are less "loyal" than the older ones... just because it runs faster doesn't mean it necissarily works as good as the one before it...
