PUSH - Pray Until Something Happens

Please take time to read!! Very important!!!

> A good friend of ours in Mequon lost their 25 year old son (Arun Gopal Ratnam) in a fire at home June 4th.

> This is what happened. He graduated with MBA from University of Wisconsin-Madison two weeks earlier and came home. Had a lunch with his dad at home and decided to go back to clean up his room at school. Father told him to wait and see his mother before he goes back for a few days.

> He decided to take a nap while waiting for his mom to come home from work.

> Neighbors called 911 when they saw black smoke coming out of the house. Their 25 year old son Arun died in the three year old house. It took several days of investigation to find out the cause of the fire.

> It was determined that the fire was caused by lap top in the bed.

> When the lap top is on the bed cooling fan does not get air to cool the computer and that is what caused the fire.

> He did not even wake up to get out of the bed he died of carbon monoxide (CO).

> The reason I'm writing this to all of you is that we should stop this habit of using our lap top in bed. Let us all decide and make it a practice not to do that. Risk is real. Let us make it a rule not to use lap top in bed or put computer on bed with blankets and pillows around.

Drac you beat me to it.

The 'news' is only posted on a few blog sites, and therefore unsubstantiated.

I have been using my laptop in bed for 6 years now, the current one I am using for the past 18 months hasn't been switched off since I bought it. Evidently I am still alive and nothing has happened. This particular case is anyway a hoax as posted in the above comment.

You really should avoid spreading these rumours.
