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.

A big annoyance: Slots (=potential bad contact)

IMO, any system that makes use of Slots is far from reliable.

Be it Slot 1, Slot A, ISA, EISA, VESA, PCI, PCI-E, PCI-X, AGP, memory slots or that Atari 2600's slot.

We are on the Bad Contact Age.
