These are some jokes, sounds, games and songs I have collected that make fun of computers and those of us whose lives are tied to them. Hope you get a few laughs out of them!

You Know You've Been On The Computer Too Long...

When asked about a bus schedule, you wonder if it is 16 or 32 bits.
When you are counting objects, you go "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D...".
When you dream in 256 pallettes of 256 colors.
When your wife says "If you don't turn off that damn machine and come to bed, then I am going to divorce you!", and you chastise her for for omitting the "else" clause.
You try to sleep, and think sleep(8 * 3600); /* sleep for 8 hours /
When you are reading a book and look for the scroll bar to get to the next page.
When after fooling around all day with routers etc, you pick up the phone and start dialling an IP number...
When you get in the elevator and double-click the button for the floor you want.
When not only do you check your email more often than your paper mail, but you remember your network address faster than your postal one.
When you look for a icon to double-click to open your bedroom window.
When you go to balance your checkbook and discover that you're doing the math in octal.
When you look for a trash can icon for throwing garbage.

Little Computer Hints

  1. If your computer says, "Printer out of Paper," this problem cannot be resolved by continuously clicking the "OK" button.
  2. No matter how much data you add to your laptop, it will not get heavier.
  3. A bad place to store your emergency backup diskette is on the underside of your desk drawer, secured by a large magnet.
  4. When the PC says, "Insert diskette #2," don't do it immediately. Remove disk #1 first, even if you're sure you can make them both fit in there.
  5. When your PC says "You have mail," don't go to the company mail room and look for a package.
  6. The French version of Netscape Navigator doesn't translate English language web pages into French. li>If you're in the armed services, and it's April 1st, and you get an e-mail message to call Colonel Sanders for new orders, don't.
  7. If you go to the computer store to buy a mousepad, you don't have to specify whether it's for a Windows or a Macintosh.

10. The monitor is up on blocks.
9. Outgoing faxes have tobacco stains on them.
8. The six front keys have rotted out.
7. The extra RAM slots have Dodge truck parts stored in them.
6. The numeric keypad only goes up to six.
5. The password is "Bubba".
4. There's a gun rack mounted on the CPU.
3. There's a Skoal can in the CD-ROM drive.
2. The keyboard is camouflaged.

AND the number 1 way to tell if a Redneck has been working on a computer is...

1. The mouse is referred to as a "critter".
