A Funny... Dr. Seuss as a Tech Writer...

Dr Seuss as a Tech Writer

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port
And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
And the address 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 going to 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 on 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,
'Cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

When a copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM...
Quickly turn off your computer and be sure to tell your mom.

  2. this was cute!! I think I was on a site awhile ago that had Dr. Seuss as other professions too and they were all as cute, but of course can I remember the site??? nope; but maybe I saved it in my favorites; I'll have to go and look

    enjoy the day, Val; I hope your mom is doing okay today


  3. oh god that is to much rhyming i just skipped it lol it became annoying.

  4. I really liked this
    yes I did
    'cause inside me dwells
    a middle-aged "kid".

    (what can I say, sometimes all that poetic-ness is contagious!!!(not sure if poetic-ness is a word, but claiming poetic license for that one))

  5.     Now that was cute. I enjoyed it.
