I concluded, my computer is asexual (or engaged with something else).

Just noticed the following as a friend's facebook status update.
Is Your Computer a Boy or a Girl?

It’s pretty easy to find out what gender your computer is.

Follow the instructions.
.........
1) Open your notepad
2) Type or copy paste: CreateObject("SAPI.SpVoice").Speak"I love you"
3) Save as computer_sex.vbs
4) Run the file. (just double click)

If you hear a male voice, congratulations, you have a boy if woman’s, well, it’s a girl.

I have a baby boy :)

What about you?

So I opened my gedit editor, and copy-pasted, and saved it in the desktop of my Ubuntu machine, and double clicked it. Instead of *saying* anything, it just opened the file in another gedit window with the warning header,
"This file (/home/pradeeban/Desktop/computer_sex.vbs) is already open in another gedit window. gedit opened this instance of the file in a non-editable way. Do you want to edit it anyway?"

I concluded, my computer is asexual or engaged with some other stuff (already open in another.. ;)).

Wait; at least you could have mentioned the fact that your sex-trick works only on a windows machine.. :D

    I can read and write Tamil, but don't have any idea about what I'm reading or writing. Should improve on that!
