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.

So mr "smart"patrol, you keep your pc up at night to search for aliens? Hehe. Very smart indeed.

Nope actually i would leave it on anyway. So i figured it might as well be productive by contributing to what i feel is valuable science. Oh and for the record i don't susbscribe to cable nor do i watch TV anymore. So try again midget mind.

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?

Probably not but i bet alot of us here don't have an issue with long boot times!
