My computer has become the interface for my life.
I work through it. I entertain myself through it. I express myself through it. I communicate through it. No creative thought or plan is done without it. It brings me information that I process and send out as newer, better information.
I spend more time with it than my wife, my child, my co-workers or friends. It is one of the first things I see in the morning and last things I see at night.
It is with me on trips and vacations; it makes long trips less fatiguing, evenings alone less boring. It is my constant companion. My income and lifestyle are largely dependent on it.
And sometimes I want to crash it with my bare fists and heave it out the window.
