i dont mind computers (especially the better designed ones, aesthetically
speaking) being around the house. i don't even mind that i'm using a sun 2
as a plant stand on the front porch. i dont much care that the directions
to our house include the phrase "look for the sun rack out front". i can
get over the fact that we have computers up on blocks in the backyard next
to the dogloo. i'm even willing to accept semi-large additions to the
collection as long as i'm bribed correctly and expensively (hey, why

i will not, however, accept living without furniture. we've got a bed and
two desks. dats it. no tables, no nothing else. it's eerie...

and there are a few good reasons to choose so's over computers. for one,
they do laundry, clean, and some even cook. they keep ya warm at night
and occasionally mow the lawn. and oh yeah, a computer cant ask ya how
your day went at 5pm and then mercilessly molest you. :)
