"You're checking my stats?!"

Another work(ing) encounter...

I've been having more/continuing laptop stress: "there is not enough space on your startup disk to complete that operation."

I understand why folks can become convinced by the mind = computer model. Basic physics - if there is only so much room, only so much can fit. If the start-up disk is full to the limits of quantum mechanics, no room to jiggle things around and make space for that next priceless video clip. If my mind is full to the brim with whatever neurochemical reaction is playing out from memory, no room to incorporate an alternative interpretation.

thanks, Matt, for all the reassurance there's only a 1 % chance this Lacie hard drive will crash. I want at a ten-year guarantee!
