    Motherf&$#ing laptop! Kept acting goofier & goofier.

    Utilities said there was nothing wrong.

    Just kept trying me and I finally snapped.

    Who's next? Desktop, I'm looking at you! You had to have a new motherboard a couple weeks ago, and you're still pissing me off.

    You could be next :evil:

    I see no evidence of the use of explosives. Rookie.

    Have you considered working for Dell Warranty? You've got just the right touch.

    To be honest, it was well out of warranty.

    God damn computers. Explosives would've definitely taken out the desktop too, would have saved some time though.

    I'm amazed Sarek of Vulcan didn't offer to come and tidy it up for you.

    Well, this was wasteful. You could've sold it for parts on eBay!

    Seriously. At least take it outside to a crowded intersection and beat it with a bat.

    Sarek will like this; my last Dell I took outside, put on some thick boots and curb-stomped it.

    That is fantastic. You should work for Dell Warranty Division as well. The use of thick boots would put you well ahead of the competition. :D

    The thing is, a berserk rage generally doesn't include a "planning stage".

    And you'd think 40 generations removed from Danish vikings would be enough. :klingon:

    A reason I prefer desktops is the ease of repair... and less frustration..
