I need to share with you this funny but enjoyable prose by Dr. Seuss, Tech Writer. It is so beautifully written and I felt the irresistible urge to post it and share it with you!
This appears in a section under Jokes of a family friendly newsletter from Arcamax Publishing (http://www.arcamax.com/). I receive this regular publication from them for free via email. The newsletter includes cooking recipes, Bible verses for the day and a lot of trivia and other useful information you can make good use of ! Here now is Dr.Seuss, Tech Writer's funny prose about computers:
Dr. Seuss, Tech WriterIf 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 going to crash!
If the label on the cable on the table at your house,
Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
But your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,
That's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,
And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
So your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,
Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
'Cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!
When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM...
Quickly turn off your computer and be sure to tell your mom.
