What gender is your computer?
A Computer Science teacher decided to have some fun with his Night School class. He split the students into groups of Men and Women. They had to discuss what gender should computers be classified as.
The Men started off stating that computers should be classified as Female and supplied four points to back that up
No one but their creator understands their internal logic
When they communicate they speak in code language
that only they and experts can understand
Every mistake you make is stored on their hard drive for later retrieval
As soon as you commit to one you find yourself
spending half your paycheck accessorizing it
The Women who were not to be outdone supplied four points of their own
to back up their theory that computers should be classified as Male
To get their attention you have to turn them on
They have a lot of data but still cant think for themselves
They are supposed to help you solve problems
but half the time they are the problem
As soon as you commit to one you realize that
if youve waited you could have gotten a better model
I think this is controversial and has the possibility of touching off a firestorm of debate.
And the recording drive on the Mac Pro keeps cutting out, slowing down progress for my client and myself. Definitely an asshole.
they are both right.
But they both have the ability to work it out.
Zero-sum games suck
Beautiful (it's a mac), unpredictable, intriguing. Requires more maintenance than initially expected. A good source of amusement.
you think that makes me ageist?
