I know the feeling!

Sideswipe: Friday July 20, 2007
By Ana Samways
Snapped in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, last month.
A German man who hurled his computer out of the window in the middle of the night was let off a charge of disturbing the peace by police who sympathised with his technical frustrations. Police in Hanover said they would not press charges after responding to calls from residents in an apartment block who were woken by a loud crash in the early hours of Saturday. Officers found the street and pavement covered in electronic parts and discovered who the culprit was. Asked what had driven him to the night-time outburst, the 51-year-old said he had simply got annoyed with his computer. "Who hasn't felt like doing that?" said a police spokesman.
