>>>Men think that computers should be referred to as female, just like ships, because:
1-No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
2-The language in which they communicate among themselves is incomprehensible to everyone else.
3-The message “Bad command or File Name” is about as informative as “if you don’t know why I’m mad at you, I’m certainly not going to tell you !”
4-Your smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for later retrieval.
5-As soon as you make a commitment to one, you spend half your paycheck on accessories for it.
6-Miss a period and they go wild. You do the same thing for years, and suddenly it’s wrong.
>>>Women think computers are male because:
1-They have lots of data, but are still clueless.
2-They are supposed to solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem.
3-As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had only waited a bit longer, you could have had a better model.
4-To get their attention, you have to “turn them on“.
5-A big “power-surge” will knock them out for the rest of the night !
6-It is always necessary to have a backup.
7-They’ll do whatever you say if you push the right buttons.
8-Size does matter.
