    A man goes up to the minister at the local church.
    "Reverend," he said, we have a problem. My wife keeps falling asleep during your sermons. It's very embarrassing, not to mention disrespectful. What should I do?"
    "I've noticed this and have an idea. if you're up to the task," said the minister. "Take this hatpin with you. I will be able to tell when Mrs. Jones is sleeping, and I will motion to you at specific times. When I motion, you give her a good poke in the leg."
    In church the following Sunday, Mrs. Jones dozed off. Noticing this, the preacher put his plan to work. "And who made the ultimate sacrifice for you?" he said, nodding to Mr. Jones.
    "Jesus!" Mrs. Jones cried out as her husband jabbed her in the leg with the sharp object.
    "Yes! You are correct, Mrs. Jones!" came the minister's quick reply. Soon, Mrs. Jones nodded off again. And again, the minister noticed.
    "Who is your redeemer?" he asked the congregation, motioning toward Mr. Jones.
    "My God!" howled Mrs. Jones as she was stuck again with the pin.
    "Right again!" bellowed the minister, a slight grin on his face. Before long, Mrs. Jones again winked off. However, this time the minister did not notice. As he picked up the tempo of his sermon, he made a few hand gestures that Mr. Jones mistook as signals to sharply poke his wife with the hatpin yet again.
    The minister asked, "And what did Eve say to Adam after she bore him his 99th son?"
    Mrs. Jones screamed, "You stick that thing in me one more time and I'll break it in half and shove it up your ass!"
    "Amen!" replied all the women in the church.

    Pinocchio had a human girlfriend who would sometimes complain About splinters when they were having sex.
    Pinocchio, therefore, went to visit Gepetto to see if he could help.
    Gepetto suggested he try a little sandpaper on his manhood and Pinocchio skipped away enlightened.
    A couple of weeks later, Gepetto saw Pinocchio bouncing happily through town and asked him, "How's the girlfriend?"
    Pinocchio replied, "Who needs a girlfriend?"

    Murphys Laws Of Computing
    Murphy's Laws Of Computing

    For every action, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.

    To err is human... to blame your computer for your mistakes is even more
    human; in fact it is downright natural.

    He who laughs last probably made a back-up.

    If at first you don't succeed, blame your computer.

    A complex system that does not work is invariably found to have evolved from
    a simpler system that worked just fine.

    The number one cause of computer problems is computer solutions.

    A computer program will always do what you tell it to do, but rarely what
    you want it to do.

    When computing, whatever happens, behave as though you meant it to happen.

    When you get to the point where you really understand your computer, it's
    probably obsolete.

    The first place to look for information is in the section of the manual
    where you least expect to find it.

    When the going gets tough, upgrade.

    When you need to send an email quick, that's when the modem won't connect!

    Neanderthal Tech-Support

    The tech-support problem dates back to long before the industrial
    revolution, when primitive tribesmen beat out a rhythm on drums to

    Hullo. This fire help. Me Groog.

    Me Lorto. Help. Fire not work.

    You have flint and stone?


    You hit them together?


    What happen?

    Fire not work.

    (sigh) Make spark?

    No spark, no fire, me confused. Fire work yesterday.

    *sigh* You change rock?

    I change nothing.

    You sure?

    Me make one change. Stone hot so me soak in stream so stone not burn Lorto
    hand. Small change, shouldn't keep Lorto from make fire.

    Remember When

    A computer was something on TV
    from a science fiction show of note
    a window was something you hated to clean...
    And ram was the cousin of a goat...

    Meg was the name of my girlfriend
    and gig was a job for the nights
    now they all mean different things
    and that really mega bytes

    An application was for employment
    a program was a TV show
    a cursor used profanity
    a keyboard was a piano

    Memory was something that you lost with age
    a cd was a bank account
    and if you had a 3 1/2" floppy
    you hoped nobody found out

    Compress was something you did to the garbage
    not something you did to a file
    and if you unzipped anything in public
    you'd be in jail for a while

    Log on was adding wood to the fire
    hard drive was a long trip on the road
    a mouse pad was where a mouse lived
    and a backup happened to your commode

    Cut you did with a pocket knife
    paste you did with glue
    a web was a spider's home
    and a virus was the flu

    I guess i'll stick to my pad and paper
    and the memory in my head
    I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
    but when it happens they wish they were dead

    Tech Support Diary


    8:05 am
    User called to say they forgot password. Told them to use password
    retrieval utility called FDISK. Blissfully ignorant, they thank me and hang
    up. Man, we let the people vote and drive, too?

    8:12 am
    Accounting called to say they couldn't access expense reports database.
    Gave them Standard Sys Admin Answer #112, "Well, it works for me." Let them
    rant and rave while I unplugged my coffeemaker from the UPS and plugged
    their server back in. Suggested they try it again. One more happy

    8:14 am
    User from 8:05 call said they received error message "Error accessing Drive
    0." Told them it was an OS problem. Transferred them to microsupport.

    Relatively quiet for last few hours. Decide to plug support phone back in
    so I can call my girlfriend. Says parents are coming into town this
    weekend. Put her on hold and transferred her to janitorial closet down in
    basement. What is she thinking? The "Myst" and "Doom" nationals are this

    11:34 am
    Another user calls (do they ever learn?). Says they want ACL changed on HR
    performance review database so that nobody but HR can access database. Tell

    reviews are sent to */US.

    12:00 pm

    3:30 pm
    Return from lunch.

    3:55 pm

    SmartIcon. "Love to, but kinda busy. Put something in the calendar
    database!" I yell as I grab for the support lines, which have

    Team leader from R&D needs ID for new employee. Tell them they need form

    10:00 am
    Perky sounding intern from R&D calls and says she needs new ID. Tell her I
    need employee number, department name, manager name, and marital status.
    Run @DbLookup against state parole board database, Centers for Disease
    Control database, and my Oprah Winfrey database. No hits. Tell her ID will
    be ready tonight. Drawing from the lessons learned in last week's
    "Reengineering for Customer Partnership," I offer to personally deliver ID
    to her apartment.

    10:07 am
    Janitor stops by to say he keeps getting strange calls in basement. Offer

    Mary Hairnet from cafeteria calls. Says she keeps getting calls for "Notice
    Loads" or "NoLoad Goats," she's not sure, couldn't here over
    industrial-grade blender. Tell her it was probably "Lettuce Nodes." Maybe
    the food distributor with a new product? She thinks about it and hangs up.

    2:00 pm
    Legal secretary calls and says she lost password. Ask her to check in her
    purse, floor of car, and on bathroom counter. Tell her it probably fell out

    Sometimes life hands you material.

    10:00 am
    Call Louie in janitorial services to cover for me. Go to support manager's
    office. He says he can't dismiss me but can suggest several lateral career
    moves. Most involve farm implements in third-world countries with moderate
    to heavy political turmoil. By and by, I ask if he's aware of new bug which
    takes full-text indexed random e-mail databases and puts all references to
    furry handcuffs and Bambi Boomer in Marketing on the corporate Web page.
    Meeting is adjourned as he reaches for keyboard, Web browser, and Tums.

    Beat Louie in dominos game. Louie leaves. Fish spare dominos out of
    sleeves ("Always have backups"). User calls, says Accounting server is
    down. Untie Ethernet cable from radio antenna (better reception) and plug

    Brief Marvin on Corporate Policy 98.022.01: "Whereas all new employee
    beginning on days ending in 'Y' shall enjoy all proper aspects with said
    corporation, said employee is obligated to provide sustenance and relief to
    senior technical analyst on shift."

    Marvin doubts. I point to "Corporate Policy" database (a fine piece of
    work, if I say so myself!). "Remember, that's DOUBLE pepperoni and NO
    peppers!" I yell to Marvin as he steps over open floor tile to get to exit
