All Shook Up

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Modern airplanes are equipped with a “stick-shaker” that vibrates the
control stick with increasing harshness as the airplane approaches a
stalled configuration.  The hope is the pilot will feel the shaking and
correct the airplane’s attitude before the stall occurs.

My work computer has a time-out safety feature.  If I don’t touch the
mouse every so often, it logs me out.  Which would make sense if I only
worked on-line, but I have lots of other stuff to do off-line as well. 
I’m forever logging back in.  I’m stalled.

I need a stick-shaker for my mouse.

It’d also be a great feature on credit cards.

  1. I don’t know how many times my face slammed into the keyboard after I drifted off at work. It was embarrassing, but not as embarrassing as walking around with the letters QWERTY stamped into my forehead.

    Then there was the four hour meetings….

  2. Greg;

    Ha! I know what you mean about nodding off in meetings, especially the ones held right after lunch.
