What did the lady say to her Delphi Programming husband on a amourous night?
Insert...insert.....pause, break.....ENTER....control control
10 young programmers began to work online, One didn't pay for Internet, and
then there were 9.
9 young programmers used copies that they made, But one was caught by FBI, and
then there were 8
8 young programmers discussed about heaven, One said "It's Windows 95!", and
then there were 7.
7 young programmers found bugs they want to fix, But one was fixed by the bug,
and then there were 6
6 young programmers were testing the hard drive, One got the string "Format
complete", and then there were 5.
5 young programmers were running the FrontDoor, The BBS of one was hacked, and
then there were 4.
4 young programmers worked using only C, One said some good about Pascal, and
then there were 3.
3 young programmers didn't know what to do, One tried to call the on-line help,
and then there were 2.
2 young programmers were testing what they done, One got a virus in his brain,
and then there was 1.
1 young programmer was mighty as a hero, But tried to speak with user, and then
there were 0.
Boss cried:"Oh, where is the program we must have?!" And fired one programmer,
and then there were FF.

Once a programmer drowned in the sea. Many Marines where at that time on the
beach, but the programmer was shouting "F1 F1" and nobody understood it.
Dear Boss, I hope I haven't misunderstood your instructions. Because to be
honest, boss, none of this Y to K dates problem makes any sense to me. At any
rate I have finished converting all the months on all the company calendars
so that the year 2000 is ready to go with the following improved months: Januark,
Februark, Mak, Julk. In addition, I have changed the days of the week, and they
are now: Sundak, Mondak, Tuesdak, Wednesdak, Thursdak, Fridak and Saturdak.
Is it enough, or should I change any other Y to K? I am a fan of the New York
Yankees. Should I call them New Kork Kankees in order to be Y2K ready?
Why Client Server Computing is like Teenage Sex
- It is on everybody's mind all the time.
- Everyone is talking about it all the time.
- Everyone thinks everyone else is doing it.
- Almost no one is really doing it.
- The few who are doing it are
doing it poorly
sure it will be better next time
not practicing it safely.
The programmer to his son: "Here, I brought you a new basketball." "Thank you,
daddy, but where is the user's guide?"
Windows 95 is a 32 bit extension for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system
originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor by a 2 bit company that can't stand
1 bit of competition.
Have you heard about the new Cray super computer? It's so fast, it executes
an infinite loop in 6 seconds.
If God had intended Man to program, we would be born with serial I/O ports.
How programmers do it..
Programmers do it byte by byte.
Programmers try to do it again and again.
Programmers do it with acronyms.
Programmers do it by computer simulation.
Programmers do it according to the specifications.
Programmers do it over and over until they get it right.
ALGOL 68 programmers do it od.
APL programmers do it in a line.
Assembler programmers do it a bit at a time.
C++ programmers do it with class.
Fortran programmers do it with double precision.
LISP (programmers (do (it (with (parentheses))))).
Logo programmers do it for an educational experience.
Prolog programmers do it artificially.
System programmers do it with interrupts.
How many software engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
None. "Let's define darkness the new standard!"
None. "We'll document it in the manual."
None. It's a hardware problem.
Two. One always leaves in the middle of the project
Four. One to design the change, one to implement it, one to document it, and
one to maintain it afterwards.
Four, plus one senior analyst to manage the project, one technical writer
to correct the spelling and grammar of the one who documented it, one light
bulb librarian, a sales-force of at least five to drum up enough users who want
to turn the light on, 274 users to burn out the new bulb, at which point we
go to tender for another light bulb change,...
Five. Two to write the specification program, one to screw it in, and two
to explain why the project was late.
Only one, but she's not available till the year 2000.
"The change is 90% complete."
"It's hard to say. Each time we separate the bulb into its modules to do unit
testing, it stops working.
" Of course, as everyone knows, just five years ago all it took was a bunch
of kids in a garage in Palo Alto to change a light bulb.
Q: How many MS engineers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None, they just define darkness as an industry standard!
What happens to programmers when they die?
They get deallocated?
Their values become undefined?
The get re-intialized?
Their structues break down?
They become WORM food...
They start dropping bits........
They branch to a new address!
Their social system resources are released?
They dump core?
The world is coming to an end... SAVE YOUR CLIPBOARD!!
To be, or not to be, those are the parameters.
-Ten little gigabytes, waiting on line one caught a virus, then there were
-Nine little gigabytes, holding just the date, someone jammed a write protect,
then there were eight.
-Eight little gigabytes, should have been eleven, then they cut the budget,
now there are seven.
-Seven little gigabytes, involved in mathematics stored an even larger prime,
now there are six.
-Six little gigabytes, working like a hive, one died of overwork, now there
-Five little gigabytes, trying to add more plugged in the wrong lead, now there
-Four little gigabytes, failing frequently, one used for spare parts, now there
-Three little gigabytes, have too much to do service man on holiday, now there
-Two little gigabytes, badly overrun, took the work elsewhere, now just need
- One little gigabyte, systems far too small shut the whole thing down, now
there's none at all.
WOMEN.ZIP: A great program, but it doesn't come with documentation
WOMAN.ZIP: Great Shareware, but be careful of viruses...
