Annoying though it may be, it's kind of fascinating from a purely
philosophical point of view.  Imagine...a guy's dead battery somewhere
can have an effect on _your_ machine.  Imagine further that your e-mail
software had a bug which caused it to crash if it received any date
prior to, say, 1980.  Then Victor's dead battery could cause your Mac to
crash.

Kinda makes you think about the ultimate interconnectedness of all
things, doesn't it?
