Some Computer Humor

I found this somewhere on the ‘net a while ago … thought it might be worth reposting:

  • There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.
  • A printer consists of three main parts: the case, the jammed paper tray and the blinking red light.
  • The programmer’s national anthem is ‘AAAAAAAARRRRGHHHHH!!’.
  • At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer, you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
  • Beta. Software undergoes beta testing shortly before it’s released. Beta is Latin for “still doesn’t work.”
  • Computer analyst to programmer: “You start coding. I’ll go find out what they want.”
  • Computer Science: solving today’s problems tomorrow.
  • Hidden DOS secret: add BUGS=OFF to your CONFIG.SYS
  • Hit any user to continue.
  • I wish life had an UNDO function.
  • If your computer says, “Printer out of Paper,” this problem cannot be resolved by continuously clicking the “OK” button.
  • It said “Insert disk 3…” but only 2 fit in the drive.
  • Microsoft Windows: computing While U Wait
  • 665.9238429876 – Number of the Pentium Beast
  • I have yet to meet a C compiler that is more friendly and easier to use than eating soup with a knife.
  • My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.
  • Programming graphics in X is like finding sqrt(pi) using Roman numerals.
  • “To know recursion, you must first know recursion”
  • Life’s unfair – but root password helps!
  • Mountain Dew and doughnuts… because breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
  • Hey! It compiles! Ship it!
  • “Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
  • Intel: We put the “um…” in Pentium.
  • Helpdesk tip #2: When the support analyst says “Click…”, wait for the rest of the sentence.
  • BREAKFAST.COM Halted…Cereal Port Not Responding
  • BUFFERS=20 FILES=15 2nd down, 4th quarter, 5 yards to go!
  • As a computer, I find your faith in technology amusing.
  • Disinformation is not as good as datinformation.

  • A good programmer makes all the right mistakes.
  • Managing programmers is like herding cats.
  • “There is an old saying that if a million monkeys typed on a million keyboards for a million years, eventually all the works of Shakespeare would be produced. Now, thanks to Usenet, we know this is not true.”
  • “A good programmer is someone who looks both ways before crossing a one-way street.”
  • C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot. C++ makes it harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg.
  • A computer scientist is someone who, when told to “Go to Hell,” sees the “go to,” rather than the destination, as harmful.
  • 1010011010 – The binary number of the Beast
  • APATHY ERROR: Don’t bother striking any key. Application has reported a “Not My Fault” in module KRNL.EXE in line 0200:103F
  • “The three most dangerous things in the world are a programmer with a soldering iron, a hardware type with a software patch and a user with an idea.”
  • There are 10 types of people in the world … those that understand binary and those that do not.
