Technically Speaking

Sometimes the error messages that come on my screen are kind of funny. For instance, lately I get this message every time I use my wireless mouse:

WARNING: THE BATTERIES IN YOUR WIRELESS MOUSE ARE CRITICAL

And I have to wonder, "Critical of what?" Are they insulting my hard drive and this is my computer tattling on this aftermarket mouse?

Or are the batteries criticizing the mouse itself, and this is the mouse asking me for more polite batteries.

Maybe the batteries don't like my new hairdo, and my motherboard is sick of hearing about it.

Either way, I suppose new batteries wouldn't hurt...


In other news, Hambone and I found this handy rack at an antiques store in Pennsylvania:

I know my mouse batteries are critical for balance. Without them installed, I fling that mouse right off the desktop and down the hall. Try explaining that to OSHA...

LOL and yes there's also the "duh" factor -- because the batteries are "critical" to the mouse's operation in total...

little brothers are great for that "duh" moment, aren't they?

I thought that's what "little brother" meant =)

"Big Sister" must then mean "Obnoxious"
