Compufrustation


#1

Gidday: nothing to do with jewellery, but thought y’all might appreciate this item from New Scientist magazine Oct.26 1996:-

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash
and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn’t hash
Then your situation’s hopeless and your system’s gonna crash.

I believe there’s more, but that’s all I have.

This little piece of doggerel has been present on the Net for some time;
sorry, I don’t have an address for it handy.
