Are You Violent? Do You Break Things?

Hand breaking the wallOkay, maybe not violent… let’s just say destructive. I break everything. I’m rough on my clothes, my shoes, my hair, my nails, my dishes, my cookware, just about everything. If I have to carry it around, it’s in trouble! I was sort of given an option to say what computer-related item I would most like to have — a laptop or a camera.

Well, as much as a laptop costs, it would sure be nice to have one… especially if someone else buys it for you! But then, in my case, I’m too rough on things! The poor thing would never survive its intended life span. Even the camera I have now has a broken battery door… because I was too rough. I do love that little camera; I’m just not gentle enough I guess.

Okay, just hold that thought for a bit.

Most people who have been on MyBlogLog for a certain amount of time are familiar with Ilker Yoldas and the Thinking Blog. When I first started finding my way around the Blogosphere (a little less than a year ago), MyBlogLog was one of the first places I “fell” into and Ilker was one of the first of all the wonderful people I began talking to.

I watched her experiment with her avatars and create some interesting graphical designs and all kinds of interesting story lines that did just what her blog says… they made you THINK! All of a sudden, bless their hearts, this company must have seen her talent and had her assist them with re-designing their site and their logo — Ruff PC!


Whatever the circumstances were, and however they all connected, it sure sounds and looks like a winning combination to me! I love the logo and the play on words with ruff meaning a dog’s bark or ruff as in rough or rugged!

Ilker’s blog is celebrating its first birthday and the celebration is built around a contest… Ilker’s got quite an interesting one going with the assistance of these brilliant PC designers! This is her sample entry to the contest:

The Thinking Blog is holding a free laptop give away and to participate, you just have to write about it! Sponsored by Ruff PC, it is a brand new, rugged, water resistant laptop called RuffBook Tech with magnesium alloy casing built to survive under harsh conditions where ordinary laptops fail. So, this is my entry – now give me the laptop!

RuffBook Tech Laptop

When I first saw the picture of this darling machine, the first and only thought that came to my mind was, “It’s about time! Finally, a laptop that can take my abuse!”

Since we’ve just been talking about gift-giving around here, we might as well add this to the list of possible gifts! Even if you don’t want one yourself, you might win it and be able to give it to someone who does want one! Man, would someone love you forever! Then again, if you can afford it, you can buy one for yourself, or one for both of you!

All I have to say to both parties — Ilker and Ruff PC — nice work! Think I’ll add this to the shopping list.

So, this is my entry — now give me my laptop! So I can abuse it!

    What a fantastic idea for travelers who lug their laptops through airports, planes, boats, and buses to get work done while in transit.

    Perfect for bloggers, I must say ๐Ÿ™‚
    We can have our coffee and not worry about spilling it all over the keys. Haha.

    Hey Jamie, how are you? I thought it was pretty cool! I’m so rough on things and the name Ruff PC actually makes me drool! That’s my greatest fear… to be carrying something of that value and have something happen to it. OMG! This is a great advancement, in my opinion!

    […] would never use the word “graceful” to describe me. And I found Evelyn’s honesty in “Are You Violent? Do You Break Things?” to be laugh out loud funny […]
