My husband has grounded 8-Bit for life.

He somehow shut down the computer while DH was in the middle of a very important raid in World of Warcraft. He was so mad that he e-mailed me and didn't call. I feel bad for the little guy.

Dori would have been in HUGE trouble if she had done that! (Fiance plays WoW)

He obviously wasn't giving 8-bit enough attention, so 8-bit had to teach him a lesson Can you PLEASE send him to my house to do that to Colin when I can't get him off the pc! That would rock!

Yeah, Anya would have been banished to the bathroom as punishment (and until Brian calmed down...)

It's really weird. In our apartment the switch right inside the front door controls an outlet. It's the only outlet on that wall, and we have our computer and phone plugged into it. Anya has discovered that she can get on her tippy toes and reach it and pull it down....shutting off everything plugged into that outlet in the process. Could be a problem. We may have to tape it in the "on" position.

Sorry but that is too funny! I can see 8-Bit plotting to turn off the computer and his little celebration till he got in trouble!!

I think he may have been doing the key board dance and some how found the right combo of buttons to turn the computer off.

8 bit was merely telling his Daddy that he is indeed a Daddy and games are for when the "kids " are taken care of

That is just what he was doing. His daddy should be loving on him not playing a game. That's all he was trying to say. I can see him plotting to get daddy's attention as well.

Could I borrow 8-bit the next time I need to get my FI off the computer? Because Spike and Oz haven't figured out how to shut the darned thing off, and if I do it I'm being "mean." Will 8-bit be offering an anti-WoW lecture series? Can I enroll my kitties?

The only way he'd be able to annoy me right now is by calling me...... wait.... I shouldn't have said that out loud.

Don't worry, I'm sure DH has revoked his phone and computer privileges, like Kevin Mittnick.

Yes, but it will be taught in 8-Bit sass. I hope they can listen to it. I shall have to get a flier together.

DH has thought about getting a stuffed kitty and pointing at it when ever he does something bad. I thought that that would go a bit far.

Oh 8-bit, you never cease to amuse!

I am surprised this hasn't happened sooner!

Radar is a master at a) treading on the ESC key when I am in the middle of a game, b) turning the computer off at the mains switch, and c) pulling the cables out of the back of the DVD player.

Cats and technology do not mix...

I am on dial up so I have to plug a really long phone cord from your bedroom to this room (across the hallway). I cann't tell you how many times the cats have unplugged this. I keep telling DH to install a phone jack in this room!!

Lucy will like to have 8-bit join her in the corner. She was sent there yesterday when she hit the escape key on my husband's computer while he was only part way into a memory test program that takes three hours.
