As they say, "laughter is the best medicine" and when you work with computers, you really need to have a few laughs. So here is our chance to have a few laughs at the expense of the computer professionals of the world. And, yes, I am a computer professional.

The Tale of the IBM and Microsoft Programmers
Because humor can be instructive.
Buying Brains
Credit card not required.
Just Watch the Pretty Lights
A German warning to dumpkopfs everywhere.
Corporate America's Management Practices

Dangerous Virus
If language is a virus, then...
Pentium HAL in 2001.0000001
Because 2 divided by 1 sometimes equals 2.0000001.

Proof that there can be a bright side to bad assumptions.
Problem Solving and Blame Avoidance Flowchart
To assist you with your CYA endeavors.

To close, I would like to provide some food for thought with the words of Rick Cook, the Mission Manager for the NASA Mars Pathfinder program:

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."

I think we can see whose side Murphy is on in this battle.
