    Earl will “boot” it right out the door.

    Then it will snicker at you, Earl.

    Earl’s computer can’t be any more worse than the Foxes’ computer with an attitude from “FoxTrot.”

    Grandma used to slap the side of the old TV when it acted up.

    At least it’s better than the computer in the old Funky Winkerbean strip.

    Would those be your engineer boots, Earl?

    Steel toe boots more likely.

    One brand of ancient mainframes used to have several levels of “reboot” named “6 boot”, “9 boot”, etc to indicate the size of the boot being applied. I kept expecting someone to sneak in a 12 1/2 DDD boot

    I’ve felt that way more than once. :)

    It might fit in a size 13 1/2.

    My first computer was a Commodore 64. One had to be precise in typing instructions, and I’m not detail-oriented in that way, always making just one little mistake, and getting constant error messages.
    .
    Several times I very nearly, about this close (I’m holding my thumb and index finger about a millimeter apart), threw the thing out the window. My next computer, with Windows 3.0, was much better.
    .
    Computers today practically run themselves, and once people get past the strange metaphors for actions and commands they should have fun. I think Earl’s grandson put something in to make that snorting sound. I once put in some Three Stooges sounds — and that lasted about 30 seconds before I yanked them off.

    Earl and I think alike. Although, at times, I like a trip out of the second floor window for my computer, myself.

    I don’t think Earl understands or speaks computereese.

    Earl’s computer literacy reminds me of that of Grandpa from The Boondocks.

    look at the monitor. No wonder it snorts, it’s about 20 years old.
