'the computer industry always seemed like it was moving fast to
outsiders, but if you were in the business it was like flying in a 747:
While the people on the ground saw you doing 600 miles per hour, you

CARS vs. COMPUTERS
kept pace with computer technology over the past few decades, you would
now be driving a V-32 instead of a V-8, and it would have a top speed of
10,000 miles per hour. Or you could have an economy car that weighs 30
pounds and gets a thousand miles to a gallon of gas. In either case the
sticker price of a new car would be less than $50.
response to all this goading,
really want to drive a car that crashes twice a day?
'How To Install Software -- A 12-Step Program'
by Dave Barry
from his new book 'Dave Barry In Cyberspace'
1. Examine the software packaging until you find
a little printed box that explains what kind of
computer system you need to run the software.
It should look something like this:
2386 PROCESSOR OR HIGHER
628.8 MEGAHERTZ MODEM
719.7 MB FREE DISK SPACE
3546 MB RAM
432323 MB ROM
05948737 MB RPM
ANTILOCK BRAKING SYSTEM
2 TURTLE DOVES
NOTE: This software will not work on your computer.
2. Open the software packaging and remove the manual. This will
contain detailed instructions on installing, operating, and
troubleshooting the software. Throw it away.
3. Find the actual software, which should be in the form of
either a 3.5-inch floppy diskette or CD-ROM, located inside a
sealed envelope that says:
By breaking this seal, the user hereinafter agrees to abide by all the
terms and conditions of the following agreement that nobody ever reads, as
well as the Geneva Convention and the U.N. Charter and the Secret
Membership Oath of the Benevolent
Protective Order of the Elks and such other terms & conditions, real and
imaginary, as the Software Company shall deem necessary and appropriate,
including the right to come to the user's home and examine the user's hard
drive, as well as the user's underwear drawer if we feel like it, take it
or leave it, until death do us part, one nation indivisible, by the dawn's
early light, finders keepers, losers weepers, thanks you've been a great
crowd, and don't forget to tip your servers.
4. Hand the software to a child aged 3 through 12 and say,
'(Name of child), please install this on my computer.'
5. If you have no child age 3 through 12, insert the software in
the appropriate drive, type 'SETUP' and press the Enter key.
6. Turn the computer on, you idiot.
7. Once again type 'SETUP' and press the Enter key.
8. You will hear grinding and whirring noises for a while, after
which the following message should appear on your screen:
The Installation Program will now examine your system
to see what would be the best way to render it inoperable.
Is it OK with you? Choose one, and be honest:
| YES | | SURE |
9. After you make your selection, you will hear grinding and
whirring for a very long time while the installation program
does who knows what in there. Some installation programs can
actually alter molecular structures, so that when they're done,
your computer has been transformed into an entirely new device,
such as a food processor.
At the very least, the installation program will create many
new directories, sub-directories, sub-sub-directories, on your
hard drive and fill them with thousands of mysterious files with
names like 'puree.exe,' 'fester.dat,' and 'doo.wha.'
10. When the installation program is finished, your screen should
display the following message:
The installation program cannot think of anything else to do to your
computer and has grown bored. You may now attempt to run your software. If
you experience any problems, electrical shocks, insomnia, shortness of
breath, nasal discharge, or intestinal parasites, you should immediately
11. At this point your computer system should become less functional
than the federal government, refusing to respond even when struck
12. Call the toll-free Technical Support Hotline number listed on
the package and wait on the line for a representative, who will
explain to you, in a clear, step-by-step manner, how to adopt
a child aged 3 through 12.
Our Hard Drive
Which art internal
Volume C be thy name;
Thy code be clean,
Thy fonts be seen

And lead us not into fragmentation
But deliver us our data.
For thine is the SCSI,
And the EISA, and the NuBus,

An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks
his dossier and says, 'Ah, you're an engineer -- you're in the wrong
place.' So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in.
Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort
in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a
while, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators,
and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.
One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer,
'So how's it going down there in hell?' Satan replies,, 'Hey, things
are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and
escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to
come up with next.'
God replies, 'What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake --
he should never have gotten down there; send him up here.'
Satan says, 'No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm
keeping him.' God says, 'Send him back up here or I'll sue.'
Satan laughs uproariously and answers, 'Yeah, right. And just where
are YOU going to get a lawyer?'
There are four engineers traveling in a car; a mechanical engineer, a
chemical engineer, an electrical engineer and a computer engineer.
The car breaks down.
'Sounds to me as if the pistons have seized. We'll have to strip down
the engine before we can get the car working again,' says the mechanical
'Well,' says the chemical engineer, 'it sounded to me as if the fuel
might be contaminated. I think we should clear out the fuel system.
'I thought it might be a grounding problem,' says the electrical
engineer, 'or maybe a faulty plug lead.'
They all turn to the computer engineer, who had said nothing: 'Well,
what do you think?'
'Ummm--how about if we all get out of the car and get back in again?'
Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked the
young programmer, 'And what starting salary were you looking for?'
The programmer said, 'In the neighborhood of $75,000 a year, depending on
the benefit's package.'
The HR Person said, 'Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks
vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching
retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years -
say, a red Corvette?'
The programmer sat up straight and said, 'Wow!!! Are you kidding?'
And the HR Person said, 'Certainly, but you started it.'

In answer to the eternal question 'Is it better to be a jock or
a nerd?', I submit the following:
Michael Jordan will make over $300,000 a game: $10,000 a minute,
assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game.
Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he'll be making
$178,100 a day (working or not)!
Assuming he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every night
while visions of sugarplums dance in his head.
If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll make
$18,550 while he's there.
If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll make $618 while
He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage (after the wage hike).
He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of Friends.
If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would
take him a whole 12 hours.
If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money,
they would have to do it at the rate of $2.00 every second.
He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but
will be 'reimbursed' $33,390 for that round.
Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into
his tax deferred account (401k), he will hit the federal cap of $9500
such accounts at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st, 1997.
If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made,
you'd be living comfortably at $65,000 a year.
He'll make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the
Olympics. He'll make about $15,600 while the Boston Marathon is
While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his
trendy Chicago restaurant, he'll pull in about $5600.
Next year, he'll make more than twice as much as all of our past
presidents for all of their terms combined.
Amazing isn't it?
JORDAN WILL HAVE TO SAVE 100% OF HIS INCOME FOR 270 YEARS TO
NET WORTH EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF BILL GATES.
NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE!
What if people bought cars like they buy computers?
General Motors doesn't have a 'help line' for people who

Engineering is so trendy these days that everybody wants to be called one.
The word 'engineer' is greatly overused. If there is a question of
classification as an engineer, give this test to discern the truth.
ENGINEER IDENTIFICATION TEST
You walk into a room and notice that a picture is hanging crooked.
A. Straighten it.
B. Ignore it.
C. Buy a CAD system and spend the next six months designing a solar-powered,
self-adjusting picture frame while often stating aloud your belief that the
inventor of the nail was a total moron.
The correct answer is 'C' but partial credit can be given to anybody who
writes 'It depends' in the margin of the test or simply blames the whole
stupid thing on 'Marketing.'
Engineers have different objectives when it comes to social interaction.
'Normal' people expect to accomplish several unrealistic things from social
*Stimulating and thought-provoking conversation
*Important social contacts
*A feeling of connectedness with other humans
In contrast to 'normal' people, engineers have rational objectives for social
*Get it over with as soon as possible.
*Avoid getting invited to something unpleasant.
*Demonstrate mental superiority and mastery of all subjects.
FASCINATION WITH GADGETS
To the engineer, all matter in the universe can be placed into one of
(1) things that need to be fixed, and
(2) things that will need to be fixed after you've had a few minutes
to play with them.
Engineers like to solve problems. If there are no problems available,
they will create their own problems. Normal people don't understand
this concept; they believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough
No engineer looks at a television remote control without wondering what
it would take to turn it into a stun gun. No engineer can take a
shower without wondering if some sort of Teflon coating would make
showering unnecessary. To the engineer, the world is a toy box full of
sub-optimized and feature-poor toys.
FASHION AND APPEARANCE
Clothes are the lowest priority for an engineer, assuming the basic
thresholds for temperature and decency have been satisfied. If no
appendages are freezing or sticking together, and if no private parts
are swinging around in plain view, then the objective of clothing has
been met. Anything else is a waste.
DATING AND SOCIAL LIFE
Dating is never easy for engineers. A normal person will employ
various indirect and duplicitous methods to create a false impression
of attractiveness. By definition, engineers are incapable of placing
appearance above function.
Fortunately, engineers have an ace in the hole. They are widely
recognized as superior marriage material: intelligent, dependable,
employed, honest, and handy around the house. While it's true that
many normal people would prefer not to date an engineer, most normal
people harbor an intense desire to mate with them, thus producing
engineerlike children who will have high-paying jobs long before losing
Male engineers reach their peak of sexual attractiveness later than
normal men, becoming irresistible erotic dynamos in their mid thirties
to late forties. Just look at these examples of sexually irresistible
men in technical professions:
* Bill Gates.
Female engineers become irresistible at the age of consent and remain
that way until their clinical death.
Engineers are always honest in matters of technology and human
relationships. That's why it's a good idea to keep engineers away from
customers, romantic interests, and other people who can't handle the
Engineers sometimes bend the truth to avoid work. They say things that
sound like lies but technically are not because nobody could be
expected to believe them. An incomplete list of engineer lies is listed
'I won't change anything without asking you first.'
'I'll return your expensive and hard-to-find cable tomorrow.'
'I have to have new equipment to do my job.'
'I'm not jealous of your new computer.'
Engineers are notoriously frugal. This is not because of cheapness or
mean spirit; it is simply because every spending situation is simply a
problem in optimization, that is, 'How can I escape this situation
while retaining the greatest amount of cash?'
POWERS OF CONCENTRATION
If there is one trait that best defines an engineer it is the ability
to concentrate on one subject to the complete exclusion of everything
else in the environment. This sometimes causes engineers to be
pronounced dead prematurely. Some funeral homes in high-tech areas
have started checking resumes before processing the bodies. Anybody
with a degree in electrical engineering or experience in computer
programming is propped up in the lounge for a few days just to see if
he or she snaps out of it.
Engineers hate risk. They try to eliminate it whenever they can. This
is understandable, given that when an engineer makes one little mistake
the media will treat it like it's a big deal or something. Have you ever
noticed that when a technical goal is reached it's called a 'scientific
but when it doesn't it's called an 'engineering failure'?
EXAMPLES OF BAD PRESS FOR ENGINEERS
* Space Shuttle Challenger.
* Hubble space telescope.
* Apollo 13.
* Ford Pinto.
The risk/reward calculation for engineers looks something like this:
RISK: Public humiliation and the death of thousands of innocent
REWARD: A certificate of appreciation in a handsome plastic frame.
Being practical people, engineers evaluate this balance of risks and
rewards and decide that risk is not a good thing. The best way to
avoid risk is by advising that any activity is technically impossible
for reasons that are far too complicated to explain.
If that approach is not sufficient to halt the project, then the
engineer will fall back to a second line of defense: 'It's technically
possible but it will cost too much.'
Ego-wise, two things are important to engineers:
* How smart they are.
* How many cool devices they own.
The fastest way to get an engineer to solve a problem is to declare
that the problem is unsolvable. No engineer can walk away from an
unsolvable problem until it's solved. No illness or distraction is
sufficient to get the engineer off the case. These types of challenges
quickly become personal -- a battle between the engineer and the laws
Engineers will go without food and hygiene for days to solve a
problem. (Other times just because they forgot.)
Nothing is more threatening to the engineer than the suggestion that
somebody has more technical skill. Normal people sometimes use that
knowledge as a lever to extract more work from the engineer. When an
engineer says that something can't be done (a code phrase that means
it's not fun to do), some clever normal people have learned to glance
at the engineer with a look of compassion and pity and say something
along these lines: 'I'll ask Jim to figure it out. He knows how to
solve difficult technical problems.'
At that point it is a good idea for the normal person to not stand
between the engineer and the problem. The engineer will set upon the
problem like a starved Chihuahua on a pork chop.
