by Marilyn K. Martin

Computerholics Anonymous: PC Users, Abusers and Confusioners

The high-tech genius, programmer, hacker, gamer, or merely a stumbling user, all have something in common; there is humor in their cyber lives. 

Chapter One: Generation-Mashing and Computer-Speak

“Today, kids talk about gigabytes of memory, printer speeds, downloads and flash-drives as everyday concepts.”

Computer technology is now a part of most people's lives, but it wasn't always this way. Here are some amusing anecdotes that show how computer lingo has developed and varies among the generations of young and old.

Chapter Two: Does Your Little One Have a Digital Footprint?

“Adults, especially new parents, are determined to make everyone on the planet aware that an Important Person has just entered this life.”

Babies can start a "virtual life" even before they are conceived and grow to wreak all sorts of digital havoc.

Chapter Three: Conundrum Interface: The Disconnect Between Computer Pros and Non-Tech Users

“If you had too many PC problems, you obviously didn't have a teenage boy in the house.”

Humorous anecdotes about Help Desk and Technical Support calls that show a gap in communication—lost in translation.

Chapter Four: Life as a Programmer

“Program (pro'-gram) (n) A magic spell cast over a computer allowing it to turn one's input into error messages.”

An exploration of the trials and tribulations of life as a computer programmer.

Chapter Five:Compatibility in Question; Kids, Pets and Computers

“Home computers are being called upon to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework, formerly eaten by the dog.”

A natural attraction that involves kids, pets and computers—sometimes an eventful combination.

Chapter Six: How to Tell If Someone around You Is a Computer Hacker

“Hackers work best in rooms that have pens and pencils stuck in the ceiling and post-it notes everywhere, even on the walls.”

It's a dirty job, but somebodies got to do it. Here are some amusing anecdotes about computer hackers.

Chapter Seven: Gamers And Gaming: In Love With An Alternate Reality

“How to know you're addicted to video games.”

They may never leave their room, but here are some amusing anecdotes about gamers and their video games.

Chapter Eight: Computer Hazards: Strain, Pain, Disease and ER Visits

“Hard to imagine that hunk of plastic and electronics sitting on your desk or table can actually endanger your life.”

Yes indeed, your computer harbors medical dangers from the micro to the macro. Doubt me? Then read on—if you dare.

Chapter Nine: Backing Up

“How can a non-tech user know how to perform, never mind understand, this mysterious duplication process?”

Amusing anecdotes about the unfathomable process called backing up.
