Melted DellThe other day I went to log into World of Warcraft and got it up to the login screen when I had to step away for a few minutes.

I came back, and my computer had shut down.  What the deuce?  No kids around, so they didn’t shut it down.  Windows Updates are set to have my prior approval first.  Possibly a productivity conspiracy!  No gaming for you!  You have more WORKISH things to do!

I’ve never heard of one or seen one. They look terribly dangerous but kind of fun at the same time.

Here’s one in action:
