Also known as Ari's theory. We were talking in the van about Ziggy and how much work it was to have a dog. Ari mentioned this proportional relationship, which is why I named it after him. Well, sort of.
I wanted to change the axis, as maintenance felt more like an X axis (something controllable), while cuteness made more sense on the Y axis (something that changes at a more proportionate rate in the population). Regrettably, my computer chose this weekend to finally die, less than a year after Doolies bought it for me. This is the last Alienware computer for me.
