With Apologies to Dr Seuss

Someone sent me this recently.  It hit just the right spot because I was struggling with computer related issues at the time. So I am sharing it with apologies to Dr. Seuss.

Why Computers Sometimes Crash!

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,

and the bus is interrupted at a very last resort,

and the access 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 to  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 and go out  with a bang,

‘cuz sure as I’m a poet, the sucker’s gonna  hang.


When  the copy on your floppy’s getting sloppy in the disk,

and the macro code instructions cause unwanted risk,

then you’ll have to flash the  BIOS and you’ll want to RAM your ROM,

just quickly turn the darn thing off and run to tell your Mom!




Well,  that certainly clears things up for me.. How about  you?
