Well, there was the time we DELETED the C disk. It was back before Windows, in the days of dangerous DOS (no recycle bin). Laura THOUGHT she'd typed delete A. She scarcely looked at the cautionary warning. The color drained rapidly out of her face until she was WHITE as a ghost. She got mostly everything back, but what a chore.

Then there was the time one computer had lightening come out of it and fried, upon attempting to put the scanner card in it.

My coputer exploded, so I'm using a school computer. It said "warning, Error in C drive" and it exploded.
