How human brain reacts with computer.

"Do you have a sledgehammer or a brick handy ?"    — Top thing you don't want to hear from Tech Support.

The following are humorous (and sometimes serious too) quotes gathered from the Web, Usenet's personal .sig and other sources. Since it's all a big rip-off, I am assuming no copyright whatsoever. I don't even guarantee that they are accurate. Now that you've been warned, enjoy.

(L)usersUsers /nm./: collective term for those who use computers. Users are divided into three types: novice, intermediate and expert.
Novice Users: people who are afraid that simply pressing a key might break their computer.
Intermediate Users: people who don't know how to fix their computer after they've just pressed a key that broke it.

Expert Users: people who break other people's computers.  — From the Jargon File.

"I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why ? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially... They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material."    — Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) explaining how the Internet works (2006).

"Science is supposedly the method by which we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. In computer science, we all are standing on each others' feet."    — G. Popek.

"Press CTRL-ALT-DEL now for an IQ test."    — (At the time of Win95/98/ME)

"Science is supposedly the method by which we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. In computer science, we all are standing on each others' feet."    — G. Popek."Press CTRL-ALT-DEL now for an IQ test."    — (At the time of Win95/98/ME)"Reading, Pa., county controller Judith Kraines complained at a commissioners' meeting in January about having to type letters and do other business on a typewriter because her computer was old and no one had been able to get it to work for two years. 'If we had a computer', she said, 'letters would go out faster'. Three days later, she announced that the computer she was complaining about in fact had not been plugged in to any electrical outlet and that when the plug was inserted and the computer was turned on, it worked fine."    — Elected luser of the year.

"Los Angeles County officials have asked that manufacturers, suppliers and contractors stop using the terms 'master' and 'slave' regarding computer hard drives, saying such terms are unacceptable and offensive. Additionally, the term 'e-mail' will now be called 'e-person letter', 'dumb terminals' will now be 'CPU-challenged monitors' and 'Unix' will be referred to as 'sexually dysfunctional operating system'. Obviously, 'fingering' is now banned entirely."    — Kevin Fizz.

"Artificial intelligence ? No thank you, I don't need crutches."    — Szylowicz (my former assembler teacher).

"Artificial Intelligence usually beats natural stupidity."

"If computers had invented humans as part of a BI program (biological intelligence), humans would have been tossed aside as barely having achieved perfect game play at Tic-Tac-Toe."    — Epine.

"If you don't want to be replaced by a computer, don't act like one."    — Arno Penzias.

"This manual says what our product actually does, no matter what the salesman may have told you it does."    — In a californian graphic board manual, 1985.

"I sit looking at this damn computer screen all day long, day in and day out, week after week, and think: Man, if I could just find the 'on' switch..."    — Zachary Good.

"Smith & Wesson — the original point and click interface."

"They say one of a baby's first non-verbal forms communication is pointing. Clicking must be somewhere just after that."

"Foolproof systems don't take into account the ingenuity of fools."    — Gene Brown.

"Build a system that even a fool can use, and only a fool will want to use it."

"Remember, the problem is not that people are stupid; the problem is that modems are cheap."    — Vince Sabio.

"Why do we want intelligent terminals when there are so many stupid users ?"

"Because we do not understand the brain very well we are constantly tempted to use the latest technology as a model for trying to understand it. In my childhood we were always assured that the brain was a telephone switchboard. ('What else could it be?') I was amused to see that Sherrington, the great British neuroscientist, thought that the brain worked like a telegraph system. Freud often compared the brain to hydraulic and electro-magnetic systems. Leibniz compared it to a mill, and I am told some of the ancient Greeks thought the brain functions like a catapult. At present, obviously, the metaphor is the digital computer."    — John R Searls.

"There is unexpected beauty hidden everywhere in this world — one just has to be open to seeing it. Remember that the next time you sneeze on your monitor."    — Nathan Walton.
