This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Default Death Ray

I bought one of those build-it-yourself Death Rays from the Home Depot, but I've stumbled into a few roadblocks. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

1. The particle accelerator makes a clicking noise. The manual makes no mention of this. Is this normal?

2. The photon capacitive bridge is showing up as "Disconnected - Please Re-connect" on the LCD panel. I've connected it as firmly as I can, but the error just won't go away. What am I supposed to do?

3. The flux-induction motor locks up sometimes. I'm pretty sure this isn't supposed to happen. That, and the LCD panel says, "WARNING: MOTOR LOCK". How do I prevent lock-ups?

4. The auto-zoom scale is fixed to 1M X magnification. The manual doesn't tell me how to change it. This seems like a pretty trivial feature, maybe I'm just not "getting it". How do I zoom in and out?

5. I think the induced magnetic field is a bit too overpowered. At 25% power, a bunch of my tools flung themselves and stuck to it. I can only imagine what would happen at max power. Is this normal?

Thanks in advance guys. I've been working on this for 2 weeks now, and I just don't know what to do. I've already tried calling the Help and Support line listed on the manual, but they always put me on hold. And, when I do get a hold of someone, they transfer me to someone else, which entails more waiting and more call transferring.

Delete System32

Alternatively... contact the US Air Force... they seem to be developing a death ray with a little more success than you...

Strangely enough, it runs on FreeBSD.

You wouldn't have this problem if you had used Linux in the first place.

Perfectly normal. That's just the mini black holes evaporating.

I just thought this was kinda ironic, since a very common type of AC motor is called an induction motor, and (like all motors) they utilize magnetic flux.
(maybe you knew this and weren't just trying to throw out jorgony type words? heh..)

Heh, yeah.

You were correct in that the jargon wasn't actually too jargony.

Well, that's a change for once, I get the impression that I'm surrounded by artsies on these forums.
