Not exactly, but I tried purring at it. A surprisingly ineffective strategy.

And this particular printer was metaphorical, at best. There was a 'printer', but it was symbolic of other things. :)

I find threatening electrical devices with the universal repair kit often suffices, you can find a universal repair kit at the end of any nearby human leg, although for best effect leather protective gear should be applied first to your repair kit!

With sixty seconds worth of distance run,

And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

It's not "breaking" it's testing to destruction for the benefit of future consumers. :P

It's not breaking its technological behaviour modification! If technology doesn't behave it gets modified into a piece of modern art!

If you hit a book with a hammer, then apart from a dull thud, nothing much happens. A kindle is supposed to be an improvement on a book, so it is only proper that they are tested to prove - beyond any doubt- that they are the superior product ... especially as they are expensive to buy ... consumers MUST be protected from cheaply produced products sold at inflationary prices!

Grrrr. Lost a crown yesterday. So now I've got to try and get an emergency dentist appointment tomorrow. Trouble is, this crown has come out before. I have a nasty feeling the dentist is gonna tell me it can't be fixed back and the roots got to come out. :shock: :(

Cheers Ghost. I'm hoping he can just glue the post/crown back in. But I just have this feeling that something else is wrong with what's left of the tooth and that's why the crown isn't holding. Doesn't help that I hate anything to do with dentists. Can't even have a stiff drink before I go as I will probably be at work. Hope that they can fit me in ASAP.
