    I have a friend who is taking a basic computer class who sometimes
    asks my help when encountering problems or topics she can't
    understand. I received a call from her this morning telling me her
    homework for today was to do a System Defragmentation. She desperately
    wanted to know about all the "blue contagious files". It was all I
    could do to keep from laughing out loud when trying to explain to her
    she is reading "contiguous" as "contagious". I was laughing to myself
    about it all day. What a difference a couple of letters make.

    This is a "History of Microsoft Windows" course, presumably, rather than a
    real "computing" course? ;))
