We've all gotten computer bites. Some are bad, some are just minor scrapes. When you get a really bad one when you're working on your computer, or somebody else's computer, what do you do?

I had this happen, almost needed stitches (cheap steel case with unsmoothed internal edges :rolleyes: ).

I finished what I was doing, cleaned any blood around, and went to the ER :p

Never had a real bad computer bite, but when it does bite me, I just let it stop bleeding, then finish what I am doing...

I'm a big boy.. I can take the pain and keep on working. I cut myself at work pretty bad one time and only went to the first aid room cause my boss made me. Not because I'm trying to look tuff, but partially cause I'm stubborn & from being a farmer all my life u lern to deal with cuts & scrapes and keep on going.

sliced myself right open somewhere inside the case; I didn't realize I was cut until ten minutes later, when I stepped in a small puddle of my own blood; wrapped it in toilet paper and kept working

dedication :D

For most minor cuts, like on a sharp edge in the case, I just keep working. When I got bit by a black label, I jumped up and down cursing for 15 minutes before continuing on. My case still has a few splatters from that incident.
