A friend sent me this link and it always makes me laugh.


I've posted it on this list before, so my apologies in advance.

It might be read along with this:

Or this from Al Stevens and others:

"370 JCL" (Shooting yourself in the foot)
"You send your foot down to the MIS department with a 4000 page
document explaining how you want it to be shot.
 Three years later, your foot comes back deep fried with a bill for

The James Iry page misses the April Fools' Day joke about Unix just
being a prank (no it wasn't) :-)


And the obligatory "If Operating Systems were Airlines":

Linux Air:
 When you board the plane, you are given a seat, four bolts, a wrench
and a copy of the seat-HOWTO.html.

And I stumbled on this list

Which points to a dmr page [2000/2003], reminding us there's more to
this world than Computers.

I like the "Unix csh/sh commands".
I thought at one time a version of make responded to "make love" with

The kev009 page includes a Politically Correct sub-section, including:

 For far too long, power has been concentrated in the hands of "root"
and his "wheel" oligarchy.
 We have instituted a dictatorship of the users.
 All system administration functions will be handled by the People's
Committee for Democratically Organizing the System (PC-DOS).


  "compress" has been replaced by the lightweight "feather" command.
 Thus, old information (such as that from Dead White European Males)
 should be archived via "tar" and "feather".
