Practical (Yet Still Free) Advice

Lest my readers feel that they get nothing but hard-hitting analysis suitable for abstruse thought experiments, let me share a very useful tip gleaned from actual experience:

In your work environment–whether a home office or in a skyscraper–if you use an electric kettle, and the printer cable becomes draped across the little switch that pops up when the water is done boiling, be very careful. The water will sit there boiling and boiling and boiling (because the cord is holding down the little switch), and the kettle handle gets really freaking hot.
