About a year ago the graphics card in my computer began to malfunction. It started with the screen briefly blinking on and off while watching a video or playing a game, and eventually the computer would refuse to turn on at all: it would appear to load, then quickly descend into an obnoxious cascade of beeping and random colours.

What struck me most about the experience was not only the seemingly-random button combinations I would have to press to attempt to get the thing working, but how this relatively minor, privileged problem opened the mental floodgates for a deluge of stresses and anxieties.

Once the computer appears, click and drag on it to rotate it, and click on the power button at the back to turn it on.
