BERLIN (Reuters) - A German man who startled his neighbours when he hurled his computer out of the window in the middle of the night, was let off for disturbing the peace by police who sympathised with his technical frustrations.

You won't, either -

I believe that they feel that using a computer on the Internet is considered computer abuse.

:thumbsup: There have been wayyyyyy to many times I felt like doing that. Good thing is, is that if I ever do decide to enter the "Computer Throwing Competition" mine has a clear shot to the ground. As we have a huge covered balcony that I have my desktop pc set up at. :trumpet: I just got to make sure there is no one below, or the "right" person below when my comp decides to take a flying leap to see how far it can fly. :flowers:

Amen, Cozy, if you are angry enough to throw your computer at the ground, you aren't going for distance, you're going for the shortest way from Point A to Point B. The people in a computer throwing competition waste too much money.

You know, they need to cool off every now and then. BTW GREAT SIGNATURE DEMON CLEANER LMAO!!!! :thumbsup:

Probably about the only reason I would throw my computer as far as I can is if I knew it would hit the ground harder (I mean meteor fast-- miles per second!!!!).
