That post was meant to be humorous! I'm just experiencing "computer rage" at the moment trying to use the mouse and keyboard to express myself online without getting RSI. I just remembered the Buddha's teachings on gentle speech and restraint which is needed towards myself and towards my computer!

Subject: Hindrances to Brahmavihara cultivation - anger
"A strange thing happens as we stumble past the first part of our spiritual path. Just when we start to be able to see clearly, and make more out of our everyday moments, we discover that behind our anger - which we thought we had faced just fine, thank you is rage. We all have it, by the way; some of us are just better pretenders than others, so it isn't obvious.
My theory is that we are all totally furious that we had to born in the first place. And if that wasn't enough, we've been sold this incredible bill of goods about life: that it will be straightforward; that we will naturally be happy; that if we work hard we'll be justly rewarded; that we'll meet that special someone; that our kids will be perfect; that we'll always be thin and young and smart; that people are fair; and that life is easy."
