Life in the Grey Lane

This electronic stuff is really getting out of hand, don’t you think? I know I spoke to you before about this. That’s when I was trying to learn how to kick-start my computer, or is that reboot? Well my next problem happened just recently. My old computer needed some pep pills.

My computer guru informed me that I needed to upgrade! Upgrade, well I don’t need to do that, I’ve been climbing that uphill grade since I bought this thing.

He explained that I needed a new motherboard…A mother what? "Yes," he informed me, "In order to get more megs of ram added…"

"Now hold on here, megs of who?" After careful consideration it made some sense to me…I guess Megs gets behind you and helps ram up the upgrade…I knew then I was learning fast.

"There will already be a math co-processor built in there," he said.

"Is that male or female?" I inquired…I really don’t require anyone to help me with my math so if I don’t hire this co-processor, does the price lower?" He explained that the math co-processor stayed with the motherboard.

"That’s their business," I said in my most polite voice. "We’re not here to discuss their personal life, we’re discussing how to make my computer go faster!" He looked at me in a strange way.

"Well, there is one more thing you require for the moment and that’s a bus video" That did it!!

I am now looking for a new guru. I told him to take his motherboard and her live-in, the math co-processor, and take the first bus out of town. I would take a video and sent on to him at NO CHARGE!!

As he flew out the door, hat, tools, and tower (that’s where the motherboard and math co-processor live for those of you who don’t know) in hand, he shouted that he would send his invoice E-Mail.

Now the mail has to be gender neutral! Just a fancy way of leaving out the sh or h from in front of the E. What do you think? … Till next time….Klara
