       Are there several ideas in currently crowded categories that you could suggest should go in this new category?

       You mean setting computers on fire? Or using computer circuitry to time fires? Or using faulty computers to start fires? Or using fires to perform computations?   

       I'm pretty sure you mean the second one, but Really man, isn't this baked like a thousand times a day over? Where's the untapped ideas necessary for an entire halfbakery category? I'm missing something here.   

       I understand a category like home:kitchen. This represents the set of halfbaked ideas that are incorporated into the kitchens of homes. In this light, your category means 'a set of ideas that are incorporated into the fires that start from computers'. Now, these fires you probably mean are the ones that are timed and controlled via computers, like at the rock and roll music shows. Not the ones that start accidentally and burn your house down at 3am.   

       In which case you're really talking about all of the known varieties of pyrotechnics to date, and since it seems like the science of pyrotechnics is mature (just seems like it, look at that crazy shit already), then the category isn't even needed. It's like saying computer:temperature control. Yea man, we got that stuff pretty much figured out already.   

       I suppose a pyrotechnic display that measured where people were and shot flames accordingly to all but singe the fringes of their dresses, now that might be a computer:pyrotechnic idea that doesn't exist yet. Damn it, I had a feeling I would talk myself into liking this one. [+]   

       Also, microbots that sail the convection currents of pyrotechnic displays and emit little lasers everywhere while they fly. Want that one too.

       computer makers should put a self-destruct button on their offerings.

       Oooh, we love the smell of Croissants in the Morning ...   

       [daaseva], are you sure you've been taking your medication regularly like you promised ?

       No, really 8th, I love the idea!

       Why are we limiting it to computers?
