When is a hacker not a hacker? When she's wielding a meat cleaver of course. Twenty-nine year old Kelli Michetti of Grafton, Ohio has been fined £125 after she took the concept of computer rage one step further than most. The source of this rage was her husband, who had started frequenting late night Internet chat rooms. Many women's worst nightmare. Mrs Michetti became so enraged that her husband was chatting up other women over the Web that she emulated the American folk heroine Lizzie Borden and gave her man's PC 40 whacks. According to reports, Mrs Michetti (shouldn't that be 'machete' – Ed) at first tried severing the PCs power cable. When that didn't work, she vented her anger at the machine's monitor while her husband tried to fend her off. Mrs Michetti pleaded guilty to charges of domestic violence. ® See also: Half of users attack their PCs Users smash up PCs in outbreaks of network rage
