Why Does My Computer Crash?

Hmm… reposting a repost of a poem created out of a bunch of technical jargon ought to help out my Geek Quotient, so here goes!
If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as 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 of your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk
and the micro code instructions cause unnecessary risk,
then you'll have to flash the memory
and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer
and be sure to tell your Mom!

Thanks for finding this go to Ed Hurst. Poem inspired by Dr. Seuss, written by Gene Zeiglar.

Forgetting to close your italics tags probably won’t help to boost your Geek Quotient, though. ;-)

That sure sounds like a PC to me… should have bought a Mac…

Thanks Ciaran, for some reason I couldn’t see that in Konqueror.
