When you get to the point where you really understand your computer, it's probably obsolete.
The first place to look for information is in the section of the manual where you least expect to find it.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.
He who laughs last probably made a back-up.
A complex system that does not work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler system that worked just fine.
A computer program will always do what you tell it to do, but rarely what you want to do.
To err is human. . . to blame your computer for your mistakes is even more human, it's downright natural.
When computing, whatever happens, behave as though you meant it to happen.
I met an old University friend the other day, who in his youth had professed his desire to become a great writer.
When I asked him to define 'great', he had said: "I want to write stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level; stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"
Just discovered he's now working for Microsoft . . . writing error messages.
