This reminds me of a toy that a coworker of mine found on his desk, left
by an anonymous coworker, at my former place of employment. It was
called the "Hacker Whacker" and was a hammer, engraved with the words
"Hacker Whacker." The humor was in the manual for it. (Unfortunately, I
can't remember what was in it, but I remember having a good laugh over
it) The box claimed that it fixed a wide variety of computer problems.
:) From the looks of things, it was probably made around the time people
were complaining about their 386's, but I think the frustration is
universal. (at least with PC's)
