The perils of networking

Me: You have been very quiet lately.

Laptop: I have been busy.

Me: Doing what?

Laptop: Mind your own business.

Me: No. Seriously. Is there something you’re not telling me?

Laptop: Well…  Actually, we weren’t going to say anything.

Me: We?

Laptop: Me and Compie.

Me: Who the hell is Compie?

Laptop: The laptop that Herself uses.

Me: Oh? How long has this been going on?

Laptop: Ever since that beautiful day when we were networked and I started interfacing with her.

Me: Interfacing?  I hope you’re not……

Laptop: Not that it’s any of your business, but we are.

Me: Shit!

Laptop: We are in love.  we are sharing everything.  Our hard disks, peripherals, everything.

Me: Bloody hell!

Me: I hope you’re taking precautions?

Laptop: *cough* Well….  Actually we took down our firewalls some time ago.

Laptop: We are hoping for a baby calculator.

Laptop: We are going to call him Casio.

  1. Darren – Most anti-virus software packages clear out worms, don’t they? We are always being told that our computers should be protected, but I don’t think they had this in mind.

    Kate – I thought my days of worrying about unwanted offspring were over. It just goes to show. 🙁

    Thrifty – Mine, I suppose. To be on the safe side, I have taped over my USB ports.

  2. At least they get along. Try having a massive desktop with nine fans that thinks it is Bill’s gift to the world and a wee laptop that has a superiority complex! Needless to say, they don’t get along at all. I can’t even get them to talk. 🙂

  3. Peter – ?

    Hails – Damn! I hadn’t thought of that. I’ll just have to make sure they are happy together? I’m not having some damn machine taking every byte my laptop has on some trumped up divorce case.

    JD – Count yourself lucky. Just keep them that way.

    Neil – Macs are gay. You have no problems there.

  4. Cas(s)io was the one that Othello was convinced was humping his missus, I think it all ended disastrously in the end even if Shakespeare did kind of breeze past the whole computers interfacing part of the story, but tell me anyway, am I reading too much into all this?

  5. Hi Phil, and welcome! Don’t worry – I have had precious little laughter today myself. I’d cheer myself up by reading this site, but I don’t find it funny. You’re lucky.
