"Sometimes you can fix something by..."
the idea for the original "Devil Glitch" song came about because in one day - an ATM ate my bank card, my Zip drive wouldn't eject an important cartridge and my car wouldn't start. when the modern world breaks down, you have three choices: find the genius who can fix the problem (the bank's ATM wrangler was out to lunch), abuse the machine until it responds or not (the Zip drive ended up being tossed out of a third story window) or figure out how to fix the thing yourself (my car's starter motor only engaged after i whacked it with a hammer...who knew?).
so tell me a tale of how YOU got around a stopyouinyourtracks problem! what's you best work-around? kluge? how did you savethedayinthenickoftime and thus avert disaster? in other words, share you knowledge, and the best posted story every month will get a free CD.
