Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

Re: not shutting things off

I got a question for you folks. Seems alot of people in here never shut their computers off. I've seen geeks ask, "Who shuts off their computer these days?" As far as I can tell, most non-geeks do. My question(s) is, do these same people also leave the tv on when they're not watching it, leave the light on when exiting a room...basically I am the only one in here who makes even a half hearted attempt at energy conservation? Were we not all raised to try and save energy, and even though the power a computer takes up is probably minimal, isn't it the principal of the thing that's the point?
