    A troubling 61 percent of computer users have apparently deluded themselves into believing that they have never - not even once -- cursed or yelled out loud at a malfunctioning machine.

    That's not exactly the spin being put on recent survey results by security vendor Avira, which credulously passes along in a press release that 39 percent of 14,284 persons surveyed in December admitted to having "cursed or yelled at the computer out loud."

    Which leaves us to believe that the balance - 61 percent - have never done so. Never cursed ... and never yelled ... at a computer. Not once. I'm sorry, but weed out the newbies, mutes and living saints, and what you're left with in that 61 percent is, at best, a boatload of selective memories.

    Count me in the 39%. I've said things to mechanical and electronic devices that would make Andrew Dice Clay blush.

    Reminds me of my favorite scene from Office Space, which I can't find a clip of on YouTube. Stupid *&^$%@# computer! :rolleyes:

    What they need to do is put a link to the CBZ Fan Zone and I guarantee you that % will rocket to 100% overnight. ;)

    I'm running both. Pron is serious business that can't be left to the whims of one browser.

    My computer shuts down automatically if I move it an inch to the left or right, usually while Im typing something, and I just laugh and go outside.
