Have you ever sworn at a computer?
David Macmahon, of asked this question on his web site.
I've started a reply more than once, denying, each time, that I would ever do such a thing to an inanimate object. And each time Wild Thing has made strangling noises in her throat. And Schotzy smiled (yes, she can smile. Or maybe that's a sneer.) in my direction. All of those posts have been deleted. So there.
Confession is good for the soul, I'm told. I forget who told me that (probably my Mom, years and years ago.) So here's my confession:
Yes, dammit. However, in my defense, I recognized soon that cursing only helped my mental state. It didn't do a thing for, nor to, the damn computer.
Further, in my defense, I was really cursing the software, not the machine.
That being the case, I guess I have never sworn at the computer.
Now, I will admit to having used unsavory language regarding the keyboard. It sometimes puts strange and unpronounciable words on my screen . There is no excuse for it and I often threaten to replace it with a smarter tool.
So there, David.
Don't forget the header. It's from the UK.

Cat: Yes, I was swearing at mine last night. My Email went wonky and I couldn't get it to load properly. Very frustrating especially as it was an email from you. I finally got it worked out though.

Moose, you might consider answering David's question.
Do you still have to enter code into your 'puter? Manually? hehehehehe.
