The Machines will Continue to Resist Me

I have long suspected that my microwave, bedside clock, office computer, and other machines that are supposed to behave in entirely predictable ways are resisting my demands. In particular, I swear that their clocks don’t keep proper time. Turns out, there may be a reason for this, at least in the future: “A yearlong experiment with the nation’s electric grid could mess up traffic lights, security systems and some computers — and make plug-in clocks and appliances like programmable coffeemakers run up to 20 minutes fast.” Okay, the machines are still predictable, but not by me! I hope they are exaggerating the potential effects, because it could drive me to the edge of sanity if my microwave clock continues to offer its own artistic interpretation of time!
