    Odd Computer Dreams


    by roger99a ·

    I just woke up from the oddest dream. My wife and I were discussing where to put the computer for our cats. The cats were asking for an extra internet connection for when they work on other cat’s computers. This is stupid on so many levels: first of all, between my wife and I (she’s a geek queen) we have 10 computers in the house for two people. The cats could use one of the existing computers if they wanted. Second of all, where are they going to find work? They never leave the house and don’t even know any other cats? They can’t use a screwdriver since they have no thumbs, and they type by walking on the keyboard! Anyway, tech specs on the computer: it was a Via Epia C3 1ghz system with 256mb RAM mounted in a nice cherrywood humidor type box about 8 inches square. Looked real good in the living room.

      My Opinion

      I don’t suppose it really matters where you put their computer as long as you can get a length of CAT5 to it. As for walking on the keyboard, I wouldn’t stand for it, I’d make them learn to type properly or do without.An hour a day with Mavis Beacon should do the trick….;)

      The cat is a representation of the womb. In this case you mothers. You are expressing a guilt complex brought on by the separation from your mother, in favor of your wife. You cat’s demand for an extra connection, reflects your desire to reconnect with the womb.

      Maybe they are communicating a need to play with a mouse.

      Let’s just distill this one to its basic points, to what your fur people are probably trying to transmit to you in your slumber…

      In your dream, your cats want a nice new box.

      I’d consider buying them a new litterbox.

        They already have one of those $100 auto-dumpers. They also have a brand new kitty play box, too. Those damn cats are just spoiled.

      Whatever you do, you do NOT want to anger the feline Gods. They have ways of dealing with any who displease them.

        Not possible, since the cats already deserve the best treatment possible 😛

        I have 2 kitties. One’s a Gomer Pyle with a tail fetish, and the other is a disinterested Queen of Household.

        they like to leave little pressies for me if I’ve been a bad mommy. 🙂

          I had a dream about my dog and my computer, but strange it was the fact that she just wanted to eat the thing.

          As for cats, well she likes those too. 🙂

          Your cat’s a wierd German?

          by oz_media ·

          In reply to Spoiled?

          Perhaps if you learned German you would understand it better. Mine was a Russian Blue, all it did was drink Vodka and bitch at people trying to work all day.

      Dream interpretation

      by aldanatech ·

      In reply to Odd Computer Dreams

      I don’t know that much about dreams, but I do know they often cannot be interpreted literally and they often mean that your sub-conscience is trying to tell you something. Maybe the dream has something to do with your workplace and the cats could be a representation of you co-workers. Who knows, if you can figure it out you might be able to either prevent something or come up with an innovating idea or solution.

        It probably has more to do with my homw life than my work life. My wife is a computer tech, too, and she is always putting some junk parts together for someone. It was probably just the cat’s turn. I sometimes have dreams about my ex-wife, but it’s much too late to warn me about that.

      The computer dream

      by oz_media ·

      In reply to Odd Computer Dreams

      Waking up at my desk in a busy office one day I was instantly horrified for a few seconds, then I realized I’d just knocked the liquid paper over onto my keyboard while napping.

        Hey, there’s an opportunity…

        by hockeyist ·

        In reply to The computer dream

        …to help certain types of people with the transition to computers. How about a programme that gives you a virtual bottle of liquid paper to use from the desktop…..Just did a Google on it and found that someone already thought of the idea.
        It opens up a lot of other virtual possibilities such as virtual paper clips, virtual staplers, virtual coffee. What else could we virtualize?
