An occasional bout of wanton violence is good for the soul when it comes to something as frustrating as a computer. When a foulup modem some years back finally died, I gleefully took it out of the machine and reprogrammed it with a hammer. It was immensely cathartic. My neighbors probably giggled when they saw me taking a hammer to a computer part with a big grin.
Arg. One screwup after another with that modem. Locked up the computer several times.
