To What Piece of Technology Would You Write a ‘Love Letter’?

Dear Computer,
It is true, that I’ve never addressed my feeling towards you in letter, although we spent extraordinary amounts of time together. For this, I owe you a special gesture in form of a letter.
Since our beginning in 2009, we’ve had some good times – especially those revolving around playing games and browsing the web, but also the ones that includes me typing in my homework on you. Those were the very best, and I wouldn’t use any other computer in the world for this particular assignment.
With that in mind, I should take this opportunity to explain why I sometimes use other computers – it’s not that I don’t enjoy your company or that you’ve become technologically outdated, it’s simply a matter of convenience. I invested in this nifty little laptop, not to replace you, but so I didn’t have to bring you all the way to school every day, because, let’s face it, you are somewhat heavy. The Intel Q9450 CPU and 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM really make the weight go up, along with the ATI 5850 GFX-card. But it’s these little details that I appreciate about you.
Anyways, I should probably tell you how much you really mean to me, and as you can probably tell by all the countless hours I spend using you, it’s a whole lot. I don’t think it’s going too far as to say that I deeply and utterly love you! You’ve made my life better by being so vast in computing power, so ever silent while powered on and you’ve never-ever failed me.
Ever since the first time I laid eyes on you and your beautiful Asus P5E64 WS Evolution motherboard, I just knew that I had to own you. Those shiny new DDR3 busses, 4 PCI-E 3.0 sockets and 6 SATA slots really made my legs soft, and my fascination grew even more when I noticed that you had not one, but two RJ-45 Ethernet adapters with gigabit support!
All of these features…...

The Love Letter

...I would like to start off this letter with congratulations to Batelco over the massive improvements they have made in speed for both Home and Business Broadband connections. As a loyal customer of Batelco, who has been with the company for over 25 years, I can attest to the great leaps Batelco has made in terms of both affordability and quality. That’s not to say, however, that there is no room for improvement. One area that is in sore need of attention is Customer Service. For the past several months, an item has been appearing on my bill named “Additional E-mail Charges”. The cost of this item is a whopping BD 12.500 a month!! To put this in perspective, for one of the months in question, my actual calling charges were only between 100-200 fils. The rest of the bill was the fixed line rental, the internet rental and the Additional E-mail Charges. In order to find out exactly what these charges were, I decided to call the Batelco helpline on 196. The executive I spoke with told me that this particular Additional E-mail Charge did not appear in my bill on his system. He also told me that since I only had the original free email address assigned to me by Batelco when I first took the internet connection, this charge on my bill made no sense. He asked me to visit the Batelco Building in Manama and speak to the executives there face to face and register a complaint. This is where all the trouble began. The executives at the Batelco Building told me to register a complaint...

Period Piece

...“Period Piece” by Joyce Cary Summary «Period Piece» written by an Anglo-Irish writer Joyce Cary is a humorous short story. It is basically about a respectable middle-aged man, Frank Tutin, who has fallen in love with his young secretary Phyllis. As a result Tutin wanted to divorce his wife Clare, but his mother-in-law Mrs. Beer protested against it and she came to London to save her daughter’s family. Old Mrs. Beer was the widow of a canon. She was a short, stout woman with a red face and a heavy jaw – a pugnacious and indomitable face. At the beginning of the story we learn that there is something defeated about her. No one seems to listen to her, she has given up hope of any serious attention from anybody. But at the end of the story, when we understand that her words turned out to be true and helped to save her daughter’s family, she felt like a winner, maybe for the first time in her life: «Even in the way she slaps down the cards, one can see a certain self-satisfaction. It seems that she cherishes one victory». As far as Tutin is concerned, he is a humane, a kindly and a thoroughly good natured, man, hating to quarrel with anybody. He was extremely upset by this crisis in his family life, he supposed his home life was growing every day more distracted, tense and impossible. He was also a person who couldn’t make his own decisions. Even when he decided to divorce, he still discussed it with his wife Clare, for days, analyzing all the complex factors...

Love Letter

...Darling, On this special day, I wanted to let you know how much you mean to me. You have been the one person who has been there for me through all the good and bad times. Thank you for being my one true love and making my life so wonderful. With all my love, Letter #2: Dearest, How can I ever adequately express my love for you? Over the years (months) of our relationship, I have come to realize what a wonderful person you are and how much you mean to me. Thank you for being the 'light of my life' and for helping me to be a better person. All my love, Letter #3: Dear Jane, I love you! Do I need to say more? I know I don't tell you very often how I feel about you, but you should know that you mean a lot to me and I don't know what I would do without you in my life. I hope we will be together for a long, long time. Love always, Letter #4: My dearest wife, Traveling as much as I do, I need to write this 'love letter' to let you know how much I miss you when I am away, and how much I love you. You are the meaning in my life and make each day I spend with you wonderful and fulfilling. I only wish my job allowed me more time to be at home with you and the kids. It helps me to carry these pictures of you with me wherever I go, but nothing compensates for our not being together. Until I am with you again, please accept this note as a promise of my faithfulness and affection. Your loving husband, PS. Give my love and hugs to the kids!......

Love Letter

...Age discrimination is a large issue in the United States today. All ages can be discriminated against, teenagers are considered shifty and untrustworthy, elderly considered incapable, youth considered boisterous. It affects not only the people who are discriminated against, but also those who lose valuable relationships by judging them based on age. An example of this is one day me and a couple of friends were hanging out one night in Times Square just going into random stores looking around, taking pictures, and doing what normal teenagers do when they’re in a group. We all walk laughing into the M&M store. We walk by the section where they had the random little M&M toys, walk by the candy, and then walk out without making any purchases. What is the first perception of this? It might be, and in many cases it is, that we stole something. Maybe the employee working behind the register will even go as far as to call the police on these teens, who didn’t steal anything, but were discriminated against simply because we were “unruly teenagers”. This happens every day, all over America. We don’t tell the youth very much, because they “won’t understand”, they’re “too young”. We gawk when elderly people run marathons, or even participate in simple recreational activities such as volleyball or swimming, because they are “old”, and “incapable”. People who are discriminated against, no matter the reason, can be hurt by it. Age discrimination is the same as racial...

Thought Piece

...Thought Piece By IRLS500 Dr. 13 May 2012 Many great leaders emerged throughout the events of the Peloponnesian War, but it was Pericles who was most capable in understanding and reacting to the uncertainties of war. Other leaders and representatives who appeared during this period of time included Cleon and Archidamus II. Amidst the Persian and Peloponnesian Wars, and the time in between while Athens was at its greatest, Pericles rose to an iconic role of statesman, orator and war general. His prevalence and demeanor to the issues and situations surrounding the time allowed Athens to rain supreme. His speeches were influential and achievements spoke as loud as his words. Pericles was the ultimate Athenian. To fully assess Pericles, all his characteristics and positions of power need to be considered. He was a political leader, a military leader and an orator. These three separate entities require a man of great following, prowess and the total embodiment of an Athenian. So where to start when evaluating Pericles? Was he a culmination of his leadership roles or was one aspect of his legacy the determining factor to his ascertation of one of history's greatest minds? One must induce that the situations surrounding himself, his countrymen and the overall goal of the state of Athens were decisions that were not easily made and required an exuberant amount of strategy to preserve all that he stood for. Pericles, according to Thucydides, was Athen's “first...

Love Letter

...I’ve kept this for so long… was too bashful then. Now lost times haunt me big time (yet bashful still). I’m not expecting a reply for this, no more. I mean, first of all, you hardly know me and I’m not even sure if you still remember me. I just don’t wanna deprive you of the due compliment. The fact that I’ve sent this, it already paid it all actually. The sentiment, the time, and the other ones indescribable, they were given justice at the instant. And so I thank you. As I’ve mentioned in the letter, I hope this serves a thing of inspiration to you (well, at the most). My only prayer is that this crap will hopefully make you more feel good about yourself; even for just a little or even for a single second perhaps. There’s really nothing much I can do now to return the favor back but this. You seem to have all things by far. Ako naman, I got everything to offer that is when pigs fly. I should have given this during the Joy Luck Club time. The original letter is preserved since then, except for the month stuff… you’ll see. A little look back from those times will probably help you understand some jargon. Ooh by the way, if you’re wondering, I got your account from the people search engine via the UP site… and definitely with some help from a friend named Marnie. Hope you don’t mind. Ei just to clarify, I’m no stalker here. Needed to say that, you might be freaked out. Ding! Another offense. Did some net surfing just lately and also found out curly...

...21st of August 2013… 12:38 am.. Raining outside, sad love song playing and random thoughts… Classes has been suspended 2 days now and tomorrow is holiday, I’ve been staying home for 4 days now, internet surfing, watching movies, reading a book, coffee mugs, talking to friends and more. But this night, I mean morning I can’t sleep maybe because I’ve been sleeping the whole day and I got so many thoughts playing on my mind so I choose to rise get the laptop and type. 1. Second to my final destination ( … Well this is not a horror film; this destination I’m talking about is the force or factor that makes me go and face every life’s circumstances I am facing. My ultimate dream is to become a flight attendant, cabin crew, flight crew or whatever they call this. Yes, I’ve been dreaming to become one someday and I am trying to give my very best for this not to become an unclear vision. I want this to manifest, I want this to happen in my life in every good ways or means I can. As I’ve said on my recent posts, I love to go somewhere, I love to experience different culture, and I want to meet new and different people. There are some times in my life when I face mirror, stand classically and gracefully and try to imitate flight attendants posture and speaking. I used to act like there are passengers and I am orienting them with safety procedures inside the plane. To train to become a flight attendant costs so much, that’s why my parents wasn’t able to send me to those...

...Alexus Harris January 26, 2010 History 114 2:00 - 2:30 p.m Willie Lynch Letter: The Making of a Slave In the first paragraph of the Willie Lynch Letter introduction, he started thanking the men of the colony of Virginia for inviting him to the bank of the James River. Mr. Lynch was making the men of the plantation think that, installing the chip into the slaves will make everything run easily. He also stated that if the chip were implant into the minds of slaves, Ancient Rome would envy us as black people. Personally, I think the only reason that the Ancient Rome will envy us as slaves, because we let a method of the chip control our mind, body, soul, values, and beliefs. Mr. Lynch also stated that negative differences are better then positive differences. Just think about it. Why? Would Distrust be better then Trust, this is setting our slaves up to be lynch in my eyes. As a slave, you want freedom so; you are going to want your master to trust you so that you can escape. Mr. Lynch finally, said that over time if you constantly used the method for one year, then slaves will already no what they are expecting to perform. In the paragraph “Let’s Make a Slave,” it was focusing on the process of man breaking and slave making. This means that installing the chip into our black men will allow them to become more of a servant that helps the white man lynch other slaves. It also focused on human nature, and slave nature. Human...

A Love Letter for U

...10 Ways to Be Happier How happy are you―really? If there’s room for improvement, try one of these suggestions. by Gretchen Rubin A few years ago, on a morning like any other, I had a sudden realization: I was in danger of wasting my life. As I stared out the rain-spattered window of a New York City bus, I saw that the years were slipping by.   “What do I want from life?” I asked myself. “Well…I want to be happy.” I had many reasons to be happy: My husband was the tall, dark, handsome love of my life; we had two delightful girls; I was a writer, living in my favorite city. I had friends; I had my health; I didn’t have to color my hair. But too often I sniped at my husband or the drugstore clerk. I felt dejected after even a minor professional setback. I lost my temper easily. Is that how a happy person would act?   I decided on the spot to begin a systematic study of happiness. (A little intense, I know. But that’s the kind of thing that appeals to me.) In the end, I spent a year test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific studies, and tips from popular culture. If I followed all the advice, I wanted to know, would it work?   Well, the year is over, and I can say: It did. I made myself happier. And along the way I learned a lot about how to be happier. Here are those lessons.  1. Don’t start with profundities. When I began my Happiness Project, I realized pretty quickly that, rather than jumping in with lengthy daily meditation or answering deep...

...Thank you for your treat. He told me it is very interesting to translate your letters because he also learned a lot, like learn the exchange rate at that period. 信 These letters he translated reminded me of the letters my grandpa wrote to me (Although he passed away,) My father helped him bind the letters together into book form. That is only for private circulation. My grandfather ever said he had there homes, one was Guangzhou, Zhanjiang and hospital. At the start with, we whole family lived in Zhanjiang city, where was at southwestern of Guangdong province. When I was 3 years old, my parents with me moved to Guangzhou. So, one-third for Guangzhou, one-third for Zhanjiang and one-third for hospital due to his cardiovascular disease….. [ˌkɑ:diouˋvæskjulə] When he was in Zhanjiang, he wrote two letters to me each week since I studied in primary (elementary) school until I went to high school. Every letter focused on one topic which mostly talked about life, (like how to be a good student and how to behave properly……..) One of the most impression letters he wrote was it was my first time to raise a puppy when I was studied in Grade6 primary school. Via the letter, he taught me many knowledge of puppy, like the types of the dog, different functions of the dog and always warned me not to be the people who lost in play will lose their aims. 人: He was one of the members of War of Resistance against Japan but he was a secretary of the General. 食物: Avocado......

... feel better. Like you I also have siblings, both are girls, although my dad remarried and had an extra nine children. I don’t often see my dad as I don’t like how I get treated when I’m with him. I don’t feel as though I’m missing out though as I live with my mum, sisters and grandparents, and my grandfather is more like my dad. I’m going to stop writing because mum wants me to dry the dishes. I hope you don’t get upset about this letter and that you continue writing more letters back. Love Always Your Friend September 7, 1991 (letter TWO) Dear Charlie, I’m not liking high school either. I’ve noticed that somewhere between primary school and high school, everyone appears to change, sometimes it’s for the better or the worse. There were these twins in primary school. Their names were Adam and Aaron, Adam was very nice and shy, whilst Aaron was the complete opposite, he was always angry and liked the sound of his own voice. When they were together they were fun to be around as they were funny and always made me laugh. Now we are at high school both Adam and Aaron have become the “bullies” of the school. They are always making fun of me or trying to start a fight, it’s like their memories of our friendship were completely wiped out over the holidays. I guess there’s nothing I can do about it, other than be nice and hope that Adam and Aaron will one day be like they used to be. Sean sounds like someone who has had problems at home or who wasn’t...

Position Piece

...Heather Chovitz Professor Solomon June 3, 2016 Position Piece Two Families should be responsible for taking care of their old relatives with the help of the government. The point is that there is help, but the people don’t have to get the help. It’s more about the choice of entitlements or going through it alone. If choosing the entitlement then it’s the factor of someone else having to pay for it. Some may not agree with this because some people believe that others shouldn’t be “lazy”. It’s also a matter of some people really caring about paying for someone else’s healthcare or cash assistance if they can pay for it themselves. Some people are more empathetic of those that cannot afford healthcare for their loved ones, and choose to not mind helping those in need. In the United States, our health care that we receive truly costs a lot more than other countries around us. Elderly citizens typically need more medical care, and the cost of needed medical care can get to the point that some might need to choose between buying food or filling prescriptions that they need. Most elderly citizens are surrounded by families that do their best to help out, but sometimes find it hard enough having to handle the burden of cost for themselves as well as their children let alone having to pay for medical costs for their loved ones. When your loved ones cannot afford commercial healthcare or don’t still have it form a job that they retired from, they have to sign up for...

... that their family too was in need of food and if they should kill them too? Afterwards a mutiny started. Also, the Navy was at the forefront of technology. The sailors were highly disciplined and some were even veterans who failed at Rebellion Revolutions. The first of March sailors had a meeting and revolted. They killed or imprisoned all captains who treated them badly before of those who were against them. After the sailors took control the Tsar was powerless. He received messages which said that he should abdicate his throne. His brother had already refused the throne and his son was too weak to take charge, he had no choice but to abdicate. With the Tsar being imprisoned, no authority around, and the sailors at the heart of socialism.. the revolution appeared unstoppable. The people had won a bloodless revolution. Soviets were set up to represent the people. Daily meetings were held everyday and anyone could join in, but soon the mini state of Port of St. Petersburg began to developed laws with crime, murder and abuse lurking around. All this would change for Russia with Lenin making his return from Switzerland, he would soon take over the Russian Revolution. He came up with the 10 principles and two were key, all power should be given to the Soviets and down with the imperialist war. He soon came up with a slogan appealed to the peasants, peace, bread, and land. But, Russian wanted peace without giving up land up to Germany. That would be a humiliation for all the...
