Reggie Moore's Law
To wit: " the basic theory is that as machine processing power increases, user dissatisfaction with momentary application pauses do as well."
A practical exmple of this recently-suggested Law is the way that Users will often howl with fury when The Computer manages to display their email from The Boss reminding them how much of their Project still remains outstanding before the next Budget meeting much faster than it will render their high definition 2500MB screen background showing a collage of their numerous offspring involved in such work-related pastimes as washing the dog ("Ain't it good how you can see every drop of water flying off Fido?"), fingerpainting ("Isn't she good - I'm sure she'll be the next Damien Hurst!") and demonstrating their driving skills ("Of course it wasn't her fault she crashed into that lamppost, m'lud - look, you can count every wet leaf she skidded on!")...
The Inverse of Reggie Moore's Law is the way that Designers are content to use 2-year-old 3D CAD software on 3-year-old computers while trying to design and maintain safety-critical systems, and Systems Operations staff are eager to hang onto old, outdated and jury-rigged almost beyond recognition hardware as long as possible, while watching Sue The Secretary or Pamela the PA bitching because their Boss nearly got caught playing solitaire ("Draw One", natch) because his machine stuttered when the Big Boss walked through the door unexpectedly, even though it has the latest quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a 512MB SLI Graphics Card driving a desk-mounted 42-inch LCD, and one of those natty little USB Missile Launchers aimed at the window overlooking the Design Office...

 Thought we didn't know about that didn't you, Mr Smith?
Surely Reggie Moore's Law is valid enough for inclusion on Wikipediment now? I mean, when was the last time anyone managed to reach .99C and prove Einstein's THEORY of Relativity? But *that's* allowed into the World's Largest Repository of Half-Baked Ideas and Theories and Outright Inaccuracies (can't you tell we just **love** Wikipedia 'round here??)
