10 Reasons Why You Should Love Your Computer

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 12, 2010 by Sheila Fox

After years of careful study and examination I’ve discovered these top 10 reasons why I think you should love your computer.

1. It’s always in the same place exactly where you left it the night before, it never wanders away by itself.

2. It’s very colorful, and the screen is very pretty.

3. It never forgets who you are, in fact it probably has the same name as you.

4. It has x-ray vision and can see an internet connection, even when you can’t.

5. It knows everything and can find everything better than any teenager.

6. You can play music and watch DVDs without it criticizing your taste in music and movies.

7. It’s more versatile that than any other machine being able to access porn, literature, rocket science or facebook with just one click.

8. It’s very, very sophisticated it knows more languages than most of us have ever hear of like html, java, php, xml, C++, Cold Fusion, as well as English, without ever asking for caviar or champagne.

9. You never need to change the oil or check the fluids.

10. It makes itself available to you, day or night, 24/7 and it never says to you, “not now honey, I have a headache”

Actually I think personal computers (macs included) are the most amazing tool of our lifetime. You can write a book, produce a business plan, edit a movie, instantaneously send mail, or be half way around the world with a click of a button. Almost all information known to humanity is available to you, like never before in history.

So show a little appreciation….because it’s a proven fact… that if you love your computer, your computer will love you. And probably the only thing more reliable than that is your dog, but you don’t ever need plastic bags to pick up after your computer.

Computer, Machine or Magic?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on April 20, 2010 by Sheila Fox

Of all human inventions created in the last 500 years, the computer has grown into the most personal and yet most frustrating device we have ever depended upon. For some of us, if we lose our computer, we lose our lives…literally. So much of our personal information is stored in these houses of plastic and metal and hardrives.

Yet, most of us have no idea how they work, and I don’t mean how the CPUs process information, or the RAM memory is used for software programs.
Most of us think of this very personal device in a very impersonal manner, just another machine that when it malfunctions we should, “get a bigger hammer”.
Or it works well enough for us for a period of time that we’re completely indifferent to it, that is until it does something we don’t like, then we’re banging and cursing and swearing that our computer is evil.

But I’m going to tell you a secret, basically it’s the secret to the Universe, that once revealed and understood, alters existence.

Your computer is not just a device….your computer is magic in a plastic house.

Your computer is energy, just like you and me and everything else in the universe. Oh, I know it looks like just another machine, sitting on your desk, ready to serve, but it is actually a storehouse of information in the form of energy,  and like all energies it responds to the most powerful force in the Universe…..love.

I know this may sounds a bit out there, and you may think I’m kidding, but try this;  The next time you turn on your computer tell it that you love it, and that you appreciate the service it provides you everyday. Try it for a week and see if it doesn’t run better and more efficient. Because even with just a little acknowledgment we all shine on…”like the moon and the stars and the sun”
