Grr! Aikido on Computers

Does anyone know of any aikido techniques that are effective on computers because today, mine, is pretty much begging for a pounding, whoever said computers aren't alive and can't hate you were basicly not telling the truth

Re: Aikido on Computers

Sumi-Otoshi. I've found the "corner drop" to be particularly effective on notebooks, but it can take the fight out of all manner of electronics. Rather permanent though.

I figure that could work, unless the computer had Aikido3D installed in it, then it coud Kotegaeshi the ki-board striker across the room (or not...)
