Dinobot: She came to our town for our little comic convention. Cool lady. But our town is in the middle of nowhere and the con pretty small -- so I felt bad for her.
skinink: But where does the Magic Smoke in my computer live?

Hector Remarkable: I have seen both Tron and Tron Legacy, and indeed, yes, these scenes are likely happening RIGHT NOW behind the metal walls of your devices and coursing through the wires and cables. I know that it's all real and true because I was trapped for years and years at those movies, I'm pretty sure. I mean, they just wouldn't end, no matter how bad I wanted them to.

Tired_of_the_BS: Over the course of many years I took escalated 'Hell' calls for a couple major computer/electronics companies - people who were really really angry about the current state of their computer and/or lack of service, as well as the quite frequent calls from individuals who weren't... stable. (My wife tells me I should write a book).One night an individual was passed onto me after one of my better techs was unable to make headway with him, he was quite upset. He called because the little man that lived in his monitor stared at him all the time - even if he turned the monitor off. When my tech asked if he meant his reflection... the guy lost it.I apologized about eight times, got him calmed down and had him walk me through the whole thing - when did it start, how often did it happen, and for how long. The gentleman claimed that he hadn't slept for days (I believed him), because every time he just walked by the room, he could see the little man in the monitor just staring at him...He intimated that he wanted to take the monitor apart - (Bad idea - watched an 'instructor' not discharge one properly and got blown over a workstation table - Really, lucky it didn't kill him). I explained how the monitor - for lack of a better word - 'stored' electricity and if he was seeing the little man, it must have to do with that. But if his monitor was connected to a power strip, well he could turn the monitor off there and starve the little guy out.Man reached down, switched his power strip off, and broke down crying. When he was finally able to speak, he thanked me over and over for making the little man go away; first peace he'd had in weeks./not even in the top 10 of weird calls... really.
