The perils of networking — 19 Comments

  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. You want to be careful there Grandad. If she leaves him, she’ll take *everything*, and then where will you be?

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. Compatibility issues between macs and pcs tend to discourage such behaviour. I, for one, am very grateful for ‘compatibility issues’.

  5. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. TheChrisD – The crappy laptop will suddenly refuse to browse any site other than

    Terence – I thought Othello was a board game?

  9. dammit you make me laugh. on a day which i haven’t had too much laughter…

  10. 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.

  11. computer’s don’t give birth to calculators, they give birth to vTech computers.

  12. Most stuff these days is made in China, so don’t worry they’ll only be allowed to have one little Casio!

  13. BBB – Or an Eee?

    Maxi – That’s true. What happens if it it is a multiple birth? Parallel processing?
