Geeks Are Sexy, Unless They're Just Geeks

Horror stories from the world of computers: WorseThanFailure.com.

Besides the head-shakers and groaners, there are some funny stories (unless they happened to you).

"There's a way to schedule tasks?" Frank replied, surprised.

Of course there is a way. Dripping faucet drips into bucket on seesaw. When bucket is heavy enough, seesaw tips lifting lid off cheese plate. Mouse runs out of hole to eat cheese. String tied to mouse tail pulls crank that pushes pencil into CPU power switch. Computer boots and runs browser from Startup menu. When mouse is full, he runs back to his hole, where a piezoelectric switch starts an electric motor that turns a paddle wheel scooping water out of the bucket and onto the floor. Water runs into surge protector, shorting it out and shutting down the computer. Bucket returns its original position. Paddle wheel stops when mouse gets hungry (and loses weight). Water dries, leaving power available for the computer.

Really quite elegant.

Ask anyone in the profession and they'll tell you, Dilbert is a documentary.

This splitter performs really well on their own. However, I couldn't use it a second splitter. But, it saddens me since Comcast reduced the signal engaging in the house with him / her disconnecting the splitter in the outside box and putting small coupler in where Could not use my second cable in the living room. Because of the lower signal I couldn't operate a tap as just one more device because like towards the original 2 splitters the signal went straight like crazy. The worst thing Comcast did was go to the digital TV signal. I had an analog signal initially when i first got my Internet for a long time and everything ran beneficial. It didn't matter what are the signal splitters I was using long ago.
