More Computer Geekery

Following the popularity of the previous post, I thought I'd post a couple of the longer lists of this that I modified for mine. Some of them are not funny, but there are plenty more gems
  • The more high-tech the equipment, the more buttons and flashing lights it has. However, everyone must have been highly trained, because the buttons and lights are not labeled. Note: The most advanced systems have multiple displays, some showing three-dimensional wire-frame graphics slowly turning in space.

  • Computers sent into an endless loop, or otherwise confused by an operator, will eventually explode.

  • Malfunctions are indicated by a bright flash of light, a puff of smoke, a shower of sparks and an explosion that causes you to jump backwards.

Those last couple may be truer than you'd expect. I believe at least one of my readers has witnessed smoke coming from an SGI.
