This is kind of how I feel whenever I try and fix something that's gone wrong with my computer. (Both at home and at work.)

I wonder if computers are getting easier to use, or if they're actually requiring more specialised knowledge to use properly over time. Maybe we'll hit some sort of singularity where our computers all develop problems that nobody on StackExchange - or indeed anywhere - knows how to fix any more.
