engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-

bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Ferengi. Unfortunately, they use Borg to do their

Microsoft is not the answer, it is the question. The answer is "No!"

The three "R"s of Microsoft: Retry; Reboot; Reinstall

ERROR MESSAGE:
Terse, baffling remark used by programmers to place
blame on users for their program's shortcomings.

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE:
Those parts of the system that you can hit with a
hammer (not advised) are called hardware; those program
instructions that you can only curse at are called software.

HELP:
The feature that assists in generating more questions.
When the Help feature is used correctly, users are able
to navigate through a series of Help screens and end up
where they started from without learning a thing.

PROGRAMMERS:
Computer avengers. Once members of that group of
high school nerds who wore tape on their glasses,
played Dungeons and Dragons and memorized 'Star Trek'
episodes; now millionaires who create 'user friendly'
software to get revenge on whoever gave them noogies.
