This article got my attention today.

 

Daily Mail.com  UK

 

Article text:

Police in Colorado have cited a 37-year-old man for carrying his computer into an alley then shooting it eight times with a handgun after what authorities said had been a long battle with the uncooperative machine.

 

Lucas Hinch, who runs an organic herb and tea shop, was cited for discharging a firearm within city limits after officers responded to a ‘shots fired’ call early on Monday evening, the Colorado Springs Police Department said in a statement.

‘Investigation revealed a resident was fed up with fighting his computer for the last several months,’ said the statement, entitled ‘Man Kills His Computer.’ ‘He took the computer into the back alley and fired eight shots into the computer with a handgun, effectively disabling it,’ it added…‘I just had it,’ Hinch told The Smoking Gun. Specifically, he said he’d had enough of the Dell XPS 410’s ‘blue screen of death.’”

 

The Colorado Springs Gazette newspaper cited police as saying Hinch was good-natured about the citation, and that he told officers he had not realized he was breaking the law.

 

'I just had it,' Hinch told The Smoking Gun. Specifically, he said he'd had enough of the Dell XPS 410's 'blue screen of death.'

 

Finch took the 9mm pistol he'd recently purchased on Craigslist out behind Organica Herb & Tea Co., which he operates with his girlfriend, and 'fired 8 shots into the computer,' according to city police, 'effectively disabling it.'

 

A judge will decide what penalty the citation carries.

 

 

Maybe a more primitive approach would work...... rii78j.jpg

Let this guy have a break. The poor things had to deal with its crap. Police would probably charge him.

 

The is no empathy in this, vile, little world.

It's sad when one slips through our fingers in such a manner.
