Institute of Holistic Computer Wellness

The Institute of Holistic Computer Wellness have found that ideas from holistic medicine actually help to diagnose and to treat intermittent computer failures. Also check out The Mineralarians and Minuteman Pizza from the same guys. (1st FPP, be nice!)

Absolutely hilarious, done so deadpan. I love the astrological compatibility for the computer components. Incidentally, I have had Reiki attunements, and have actually healed some intermittent computer failures, so this parody really hit the mark for me...

"BobsterLobster?" What were you thinking?

Man, if there's one thing I can't stand, it's self-rhyming usernames.

Hmm... I can see I should have kept my mouth shut about it being a 1st post...

I love the cord wrapped around the crystal in the "bad vibe" section. My wife is a massage therapist and I could swear I saw a series of seminars on this exact thing in one of the less-assiduously-scientific periodicals she receives.
But c'mon, who among us doesn't have some OCD-ish quirks in which we engage when booting up, when a crash in imminent, when waiting for e-mail to load?

That was a funy link, loser.

Is that an attempt at humour? Do you talk to people like that in real life you've never met or do you save it for the chat-rooms?

Bobster: Don't take *anything* anyone here says, seriously. Not sure how long you've been reading MeFi, but let's just say there's tons of sarcasm and anything that sounds insulting is far more likely to be a joke ;)

And if you didn't get what soyjoy said...erhm...look at their *own* username ^_~

/me returns to lurking :P

I did notice soyjoy's name, there's a difference between light humour and insults. I will stop being defensive now and drop the subject... Thanks cyrusdogstar.

Yes. Do you always castigate those that are incapable of actually being funny? I liked your link, and I'm glad that you posted it.

Im sorry, but this is rediculous. Quit stroking this guy.

First post ever btw, never felt as compelled as today to post, and it has nothing to do with his FPP, following suit with 90% of the other comments on this topic.
