I always thought computers worked by magic, now I see they work by baking.

The two arts are not mutually exclusive, you know, belM! Just think of the recipe that the three witches in MacB were trying out. Makes Delia Smith look pretty unadventurous.
I am just wondering what sort of witches brew one needs to make a computer perform? Bugs were a major part of the equation in my steam-driven programming days, and I'm sure they still have great importance. Virusses seem to be the modern main ingredient.

"eye of newt" would fix things right up. Newts are notorious bug eaters. I'd be willing to "dance naked in the light of the new moon" if it would keep these things from happening, but I think thatís how viruses got started in the first place .

No - it's just the way they are passed on
