swearing helps? [Jun. 22nd, 2000|04:48 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
heh ... i can hear my brother in his room swearing at his computer: "come on you fucking dvd player, play a goddamn movie!" he just got it and hasn't installed all the drivers yet .... god forbid he might have to do that first! *gasp*

I find this to be a useful technique, along with giving the 'puter the "evil eye".

i normally throw up my arms, and yell, "arg!!".
then i sit down, feeling better, and fix the problem. but that might be just me.

Re: swearing helps?

Sounds like my roommate in the dorms...every time his computer froze (which happened every couple of hours), he'd swear at it and then smack his monitor. We all tried to convince him that hitting his monitor wasn't going to solve anything, but he never did get over that habit.
