Hi Joe
 Although not a computer, it was in Florida. When I was there,
one of my lady friends talked me into working on he old Mercedes.
We when out to start looking it over. On opening the driver door,
there was a large black widow spider. A few moments later we'd
gotten her into a soda cup from a fast food.
 I next started to move some of the stuff around so I could get
in and do some more looking over. This is when the largest
scorpion I'd ever seen ran across my lap.
 Still wanting to help out, we opened the hood to see what size
battery it would require. That is when the rattle snake let
us know that we were in his territory.
 At this point I told her that a dead boy friend was not to
good and that I'd only consider working on the car if she
got it fumigated.
