I am sitting in a charge nurse meeting at work, listening to the Information Technology (I.T.) guy explain why our computers are so slow.
“It turns out,” he says, “the trouble is with their dongles, so – ”
My eyes pop open.
“Dongles?” I burst out involuntarily, incredulous. “Did you say dongles?”

I’m not listening anymore. A whole new continent has just been discovered, a brand new world has opened up before me, ripe for exploring.
Computers have dongles!
