1682. Computer troubles

Ernie was having trouble with his computer. Half the programs had stopped working. Adverts would pop up uninvited. Anti-virus programs would find and delete important files that weren’t viruses or worms or Trojans or anything other than important files.

Ernie was at the end of his tether. One fine early summer’s day he picked up his PC and threw it out the window. Unbeknownst to him the CEOs of every computer company in the world were sitting outside under the window chatting during a break from an important meeting about what was the best bank in which to store all their greedy money. Ernie’s computer landed on top of them and killed the lot.

Ernie was arrested and tried for murder. When the evidence was presented the judge was heard to exclaim “Good on you, Ernie”.

The judge stood and applauded.
The jury stood and applauded.
Lawyers and stenographers stood and applauded.
The whole court room exploded into three hearty cheers for Ernie.

Hip hip hooray!
Hip hip hooray!
Hip hip hooray!

      Yes! I too live on the bottom floor. A laptop would be easier to chuck at someone than a PC but it wouldn’t inflict as much damage.

    Now if Ernie could only script a code and insert it into the brains of CEOs of social networking sites and make them make a fool out of themselves by actually being real on their own sites, it’d be paradise for a social outcast like me who tweets into the void!

        In the end, this leads to a deeper question. Does writing anything matter? Isn’t everything already known. All we’re doing is simply repacking it well. When I say everything is known, I refer to knowledge of good and evil. Everything revolves around it. Even the most obscure story revolves around the same theme. Adam really messed up, didn’t he?

      Yes – however it’s 10 years old and runs on Windows 7 which is about to be thrown into the trash can by Microsoft. So this simply has given me a jog along. However – I have a second computer only 1 year old that I hate using and it takes me twice as long to do things on it because it’s “user friendly” and has this annoying habit of presuming to help.
