A Fake Internet Presence,
It seems that this is a hacked and slashed version which is definitely
not nearly as good as the original. The original is by Gene Ziegler,
a professor at Cornell University. You can find the original,
A Grandchild's Guide to Using Grandpa's Computer"
by Dr. Zseuss on his homepage
Shame on those who appropriate the work of others.
If Dr. Seuss Were a Computer Analyst...
- Here's an easy game to play.
- Here's an easy thing to say:
- 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 gonna crash!
- You can't say this?
- What a shame sir!
- We'll find you
- Another game sir.
- 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 the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
- And the micro-code instructions cause unnecessary risk,
- Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to ram your rom.
- Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your mom!
