The Tao of tech
Am I the only one it happens to that many pieces of a single kind of technology tend to go out at once? I mean, the toilet overflows the day the kitchen faucet starts dripping? And the lightbulb in the hallway burns out two days after the short on the bedroom lamp switch?
My computer, three years old and hard driven, is beginning to have small but serious nervous breakdowns. It sometimes takes two or three reboots to get it going again. My beloved camera is in the shop getting lens work, the picture on my TV now stretches beyond the screen, the new stereo is suddenly sometimes not stereo for a second or two, and my iPhone, though it works fine, has a broken case. I feel like the guy in that "Twilight Zone" episode who was always pounding on his appliances when they didn't work the way he wanted them to, until finally they came to life and chased him into the swimming pool, and the toaster, plugged in, jumped in with him.
