PCs use words like "master", "slave" and "sub". I just rebooted my PC with the "professional" restart so all I could do was stare at these words repeated over and over. Then I fell into a daydream

Ha ha! No I wasn't dreaming. It's Friday and I can't wait to get out of here. Yeah in the very beginning when you first turn on a PC and it asks if you want to start in professional mode. Then there's a list of words in "computer speak" and every once in awhile those words pop up.

Another 1.5 hours to go!

I don't know what mode my computer starts up in. I never really paid much attention to it. Is this "professional" mode something special?

No I believe every PC has this it comes on when your computer crashes. A message comes on saying "your computer didn't shut down properly. Please select the mode". There's professional , normal and something else.

Yes, I've heard that

Master file

Slave drive

Sub folder

But they just give me a twinge of white guilt, instead of any frisky thoughts
