I have a couple of posts in the works but I wanted to cross off what I can do on this list and the blog seemed a good way to do it.
The post is cropped at so click on the link to see more.
If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort, and the address 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 on another protocol, that’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall, 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 it and go out with a bang, ’cause as sure as I’m a poet, your system’s gonna hang.
When the copy of your floppy’s getting sloppy on the disk, and the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk, when you have to flash your memory and try to RAM your ROM, quickly turn off the computer and be sure to call your Mom!!
I have watched in dismay for the last six or eight years as various extremely rich people bounced around clapping their hands with glee and congratulating themselves on keeping me out of home ownership.
To expect sympathy from me now is, shall we say, optimistic.
So we had snow and ducklings in the same week. Don’t you love British weather?
