Poll question: Devices in your home that flash incessantly:
I've got 3.

The electric razor, sitting in its charger; the Roomba; and the VCR. Screw it, every time I bother the power blips off again. I hereby declare it 12:00 AM until eternity.

How many flashing things live at your home?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

6. My Macs sorta breathe or throb...
When in sleep mode, my PowerBook and Power Mac G5 have bright white lights that brighten then dim, brighten, then dim, etc. It's like they are snoring or breathing.

They are very bright and can be annoying when I'm trying to sleep myself.

7. The walls. The chairs. That dead rat in the corner.
They're all out to get me, but they don't know that I'm on to their sneaky little plans. Ha!

9. In my bedroom
There is only one wall unit to plug into. So I've had to run an extension cord to my bedside table. My light, clock and anything else on that side of the room is plugged in through that extension cord. The cats, unfortunately, often dislodge the plug, and it turns everything off, and then they hit it again, and it goes back in. The lamp and other things are okay, but the clock is forever going on and off with its red lcd. I gave up long ago trying to rely on it.
