The fRiDaY File, for November 20, 1998

Point - Counterpoint

Computers are Male!

  • In order to get their attention you have to turn them on.

  • They have a lot of data but they are still clueless.

  • Most of the time they are the problem.

  • As soon as you commit to one you realize that if you had waited a little longer you could have had a better model.

Computers are Female!

  • No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.

  • The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.

  • Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.

  • As soon as you make a commitment to one you find yourself spending half your pay cheque on accessories.
