Here's another great Dell story...

--------------------------------------------

Bite-sized news from here and there

March 4, 2003



LAFAYETTE, Colo. - George Doughty's computer will never crash again. It will never run again, either.

Doughty was jailed during the weekend on suspicion of shooting his Dell computer four times with a revolver earlier that day in the middle of the Sportsman's Inn Bar and Restaurant.

He then allegedly hung the destroyed laptop on the wall "like a hunting trophy," said Lt. Rick Bashor with the Lafayette Police Department.

Doughty, 48, owns the establishment. He entered the bar from his office, announced he was going to shoot his computer and returned to his office. After 30 minutes, police said, Doughty set his laptop on the floor 4 to 6 feet away from him, warned two customers at the bar to cover their ears and fired away. The computer took all the bullets. No one was injured.

Because Doughty is accused of putting the customers and bartender in danger, he was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing, reckless endangerment and the prohibited use of weapons.

Oh, that's easy. The Dell was booted into Windows, the hourglass was spinning, and it refused to recognise the first 3 user inputs.

Is there anywhere to sign up to shoot Dell Computers? Or well any Windows computer?

I guess Barney will have a new toy to play with in the shooting range. I wonder if there is a website dedicated to such actions?
