I think getting bluescreen would come quite expensive for you


Well if that happens I'd just fix it.. :P.. I was assuming this was all to the point of no return hahah

No spartan kick? I'm disappointed


Indeed.. but If I can't fix it.. You can bet my screen is going into the Giant Pit of Death..

I grunt, slightly, then ignore it.

If it's computer/phone/other similar tech, I glare at it but am never too surprised, since I'm something of a Walking TechBane. If it's anything else, I usually try to fix it.

I remember some times in the past where I was angry, loud, and raging due to Windows 95 and Windows XP having errors and fucking up because, well, they are Windows 95 and Windows XP.

I hear Windows XP was pretty good at first, but eventually, it became a real hassle to deal with if you didn't do regular maintenance with it, plus in these days malware and adware were majorly on the rise.

Unplug it and plug it back in again. Or get unnecessarily angry to the point where I'm red up to my ears and either punch things or swear at it until I come up with something. Lemme tell ya, that is not a quick result. Don't take my advice.

The thing about anything is that it always works as intended. Taking into account age of the hardware and software, the quality of the hardware, and how well it has been maintained.

It is just that how the designer or manufacturer intended it to work is often not how the end user *wants* it to work.

Unless it says "Made in America". Then I just hit it a couple of times and try it again. For items that say "Made in America" that is called performing manufacturers advised maintenance.

If it says "Made in Japan" then I have to get a girl to come over to pat the component a few times gently while telling it stories of strong warriors, beautiful heroines and their battles against gods of renown and note. This is also called performing manufacturers advised maintenance.

All in all, Made in America is far easier to deal with. Albeit one needs to perform said maintenance on Made in America items with far more frequency than Made in Japan components.

Well, never do this to people who're attached to life support that's for sure.

I try to fix it.
But if I can't I find someone else to help.

Try to fix it if I think there's something I could do but it it doesn't work, I get horribly upset and I'm just angry the rest of the day or until I find something fun.
