How Much Does Your Computer Stress You Out?

By Eric Limer on at

A recent survey commissioned by Crucial has turned up a few interesting statistics on computer stress. 94 percent of respondents said they've had computer problems drive them up the wall, and a little over half aren't happy with how their little Internet box behaves in general. 18 percent even said computer problems are more stressful than taxes.

Like anyone, I've had my share of computer stress. Sometimes it's something little, like temporary but insufferable lag. Other times I've lost paragraphs of work due to a crash, and then there's the dreaded "I didn't backup, like ever" hard drive crash. That one, at least, is worse than taxes, I think.

How much does your computer stress you out, more than it makes your life easier? Do you curse at it under your breath? Loudly? What's your worst comp-stress horror story? Let it out. It's good for you. [Tom's Hardware]
