    Ok.. it wasnt me that got shocked, but still, quite fun

    When I was at computer party (yes, I know, I'm a geek ) everyone was showing off their hardware. I think a guy there even had like 10 200 gig harddisk's (do I need to say he's a warez monkey). So, everyone drinks some kind of drinks at a computer party, and this poooor guy had just gotten there, just rigged up his equipment and opened the case to his hardware. So, someone walks by, pushing him and he looses his coke can inside his computer! So his computer starts sparkling like crazy! Poor guy, I think he had to replace all of his hardware But it was at a lan, so the hardware shops were around the corner. But still, boring.

    wow all those stories are horribly ... hilarious! and yet at the same time shockingly (yuck yuck) disturbing. makes you wonder about whether or not to treat your PC just a little bit better.

    I like to try all flavors of the rainbow. Running SuSE 10.1 on my laptop, Windows XP on my desktop, and an Mac OS X on my Mac powerbook.
