Well I have a new micro-wave machine fully digital and I presumed equipped
with a(some) chip(s) (at least for the LCD screen) and guess what?! it's a
pain in the...in my old analogue micro-wave I just had to rotate the knob
and close the door, now I have to press several buttons (including set and
reset...) and go through several options... I just want to warm my
food...every time I have to use I look like a donkey looking to a palace
(Old Portuguese saying), and I call myself an advanced computer user...
