Computing Nightmares, Be Gone!

Ghouls, goblins and other assorted creatures of the night tend to throw a big party only once a year, usually taking the rest of the year to cure a nasty Halloween hangover induced by too much candy and the sight of small, strangely dressed children with trashbags. One nightmarish spectre, however, looms perpetually large over college campuses nationwide: computer malfunction. True, the name sounds relatively benign, but be afraid, be very afraid of this dreaded menace and its insidious sidekick, the error message. Both of these beasts can make any student's life a living hell, especially as midterms and deadlines approach.
