Why Computers Sometimes Crash! By Dr. Seuss – via Email from Maranda

(Read this to yourself aloud – it’s great!)
If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, and the bus is interrupted
at a very last resort, and the access 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!
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
to another protocol, that’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the
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, ‘cuz sure as I’m a poet, the sucker’s gonna hang.
When the copy on your floppy’s getting sloppy in the disk, and the macro
code instructions is causing unnecessary risk, then you’ll have to flash
the memory and you’ll want to RAM your ROM, and then quickly turn off the
computer and be sure to tell your Mom!
Well, that certainly clears things up for me. How about you?
Thank you, Bill Gates, for bringing all this into our lives.
