add your fun quotes and stuff


hey,
the thing i always liked about this site, were the funny quotes about computers, here are some ex:

A TV can insult your intelligence, but nothing rubs it in like a computer.
Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN
Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?
A computer is like the government, it never works unless you spend money on it.

I especially like the Bill Gate$ and M$ jokes!

thx

Linux is free only if your time is worthless.

how about these:


If at first you don't succeed, add 1 to any integer variable.

I had a life once... now I have a computer and a modem.

Have you crashed your Windows today?

CONSOLE: What one does to a depressed computer

Most computer problems are caused by a loose nut between the chair and the keyboard

Money is the root of all evil (Send $30 shareware fee to use this tag line.)

lost: oNE "cAPS lOCK" KEY. rEWARD OFFERED.

Counting in binary is just like counting in decimal if you are all thumbs.

There are only 10 kinds of people, those that can count in binary and those that can't.

I only use my computer on days of the week that end in "y."

Programmers are tools for converting caffeine into code.

Premature optimization is the root of all evil.

Love is Hate. War is Peace. Windows is stable.

Real_men_don't_need_spacebars.

Pentium rule #1: If at first you don't succeed, round it off.

If it's not on fire, it's a software problem.

He's got a magnet!!! Everybody BACKUP!!!!!!!!

Calculating in binary code is as easy as 01,10,11.

MACRO - The last half of an expression: for example "Holy Macro".

Endless Loop: n., see Loop, Endless.

"Hello, World" 17 Errors, 31 Warnings...

"I believe OS/2...to be the most important OS...of all time" Gates '87

There are three ways to ruin a buissness:
1: By gambling - This is fastest
2: By woman - This is most fun
3: By computers - This is most certain.

A doctor, an architect, and a computer scientist were arguing about whose profession was the oldest.
In the course of their arguments, they got all the way back to the Garden of Eden, whereupon the doctor said, "The medical profession is clearly the oldest, because Eve was made from Adam's rib, as the story goes, and that was a simply incredible surgical feat."
The architect did not agree. He said, "But if you look at the Garden itself, in the beginning there was chaos and void, and out of that, the Garden and the world were created. So God must have been an architect."
The computer scientist, who had listened to all of this said, "Yes, but where do you think the chaos came from?"
