Bandwagon Chatter VI

I literally haven't shutdown my laptop in over, like, two weeks. That is nothing! And it is getting SO slow. Machines are starting to let me down.

Side question - I had discussed this with a friend before and I must credit her with the observation : why do adults call computers machines? (How do you punctuate that last question?) As in, "my machine isn't working." Or, "I have to load something onto my machine." Or, "I am getting a new machine." I picture a machine as just being something metal that works by itself and does something for you. Hello! we are out of the Roaring 20's and the Era of Yankee Ingenuity. Stop using that word!
