Datorn: han eller hon?

Publicerad: 28 april 2009, 11:38

Is the computer a he or a she?

Why computers seem 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.
— The message "Bad command or file name" is about as informative as, "If you don’t know why I’m mad at you, then I’m certainly not going to tell you."
— 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 paycheck on accessories.

Why computers seem male:
— They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
— They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half 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 obtained a better model.
— In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
— Big power surges knock them out for the rest of the night.
