Some time ago, my friend was doing something unrecommended with some facet of the Adobe Creative Suite. Instead of offering helpful advice, I decided to employ guilt.
“The software gets sad when you do that,” I said. “It probably has to go drinking with its buddies afterwards to unwind.”
“You mean like Tron characters?” he asked.
Hell yes I do!
So the next time you find yourself doing something you shouldn’t, consider that you might be driving your software to instability and alcoholism. Or whatever those pixels are that they drink in Tron: Legacy. Pointillism.
(Yes, I know that Amazon isn’t a program, but I wanted to have Bittorrent hit on some legal media purchasing system, and the iTunes Store isn’t as personifiable.)
