An Uncommon Courtesy

As insulting, sick and manically depressed as Ziggy's computer can get, it's nice to see that it can occasionally make the courtesy of conserving a little power before Ziggy is thrown into debtor's prison.

I love the computers that Ziggy uses - ancient, one-piece affairs the likes of which you used to purchase with the Sears Roebuck catalog to liven up the drawing room. These things haven't been seen in stores for decades, which probably explains why they occasionally follow their better judgment and suddenly find themselves eager to serve. I don't think that Ziggy has a job, so I imagine he mainly uses his computer for bank defraudment schemes. Ever-serviceable, the computer will take most of the rap.
