Your PC is not a familiar

Not to pick on Greif specifically, but this habit people have of giving cutesy nicknames to their appliances, I’m begining to find it tiresome.

Giving something a name just gives it more power over you; Computers already have too damn much power over us. My car frustrates me enough without attributing intent to its breakdowns.

Hmmph. I’m thinking that even giving my blog a name was a foolish move.

    Oddly, an earlier version of this rant had the phrase “giving cutesy nicknames to their appliances, even if they spend more time with them then with their genitalia, is starting to become tiresome”.

    דוד אבוטבול, בבקשה תפסיק לפרסם לינקים של הבלוגים שלך והחברים שלך בכל מקום, זה רק גורם לסלידה מקורקי והבלוגספרה הקליקית שלך.

    תודה.
