    The first time it wasn't such a bad scam, but GOING BACK A SECOND TIME? Jeebus.

    Why full of small potatoes I wonder?

    And yes, a second time is stupid!
    Such is life.

    So you can say: Someone switched the parts with potatoes! I guess a puter filled with patatoes weighs the same as a puter filled with parts.

    What you guys fail to recognize is that an Integrated Matrix of Really Small Potatoes (IMORSP) can provide performance better than that of Intel's best Pentium 4 with the hyper-whatever technology processor. IMORSP's power is due to Starchy Electrical Conductivity in Water (SECIW), which is patented by that German computer shop. The Potato Overclocked Turbo Active Transformation Oscillator (POTATO) enables further increases in floating-point operations and high-end multimedia applications.

    What I want to know is Where can I get one of these in the United States?
    I am a programmer. My first duty is to God, then to nation, then to employer, then to family, then to friends, then to computer, and finally to myself. I code with dignity, honor, and integrity.
