83 things you do NOT want your System Administrator to say

1. uh-oh....

2. Oh S***!

3. What the heck?!?

4. Go get your backup tape. (You DO have a backup tape?)

5. That's Soooooo bizarre.

6. WOW!! Look at this...

7. Hey!! The Suns don't do this.

8. Terminated?

9. What software license?

10. Well, it's doing SOMETHING...

11. Wow...that seemed fast...

12. I got a better job a Lockheed...

13. Management says...

14. Sorry, the new equipment didn't get budgeted.

15. What do you mean that wasn't a copy?

16. It didn't do that a minute ago.

17. Where's the GUI on this thing?

18. Damn, and I just bought that Coke...

19. Where's the DIR command?

20. The drive ate the tape but that's OK, I brought my screwdriver.

21. I cleaned up the root partition and now there's LOTS of free space.

22. What's this 'any' key I'm supposed to press?

23. Do you smell something?

24. What's that grinding sound?

25. I have never seen it do THAT before...

26. I don't think it should be doing that...

27. I remember the last time I saw it do that...

28. You might as well all go home early today...

29. My leave starts tomorrow.

30. Oops! (said in a quiet, almost surprised voice)

31. Hmm, maybe if I do this...

32. Why is this 'rm -r *' taking so long?

33. Hmmm, curious.

34. Well, MY files were backed up.

35. What do you mean you needed that directory?

36. What do you mean /home was on that disk? I unmounted it!

37. Do you really need your home directory to do any work?

38. I didn't think anybody would be doing any work at 2am, so I killed your job.

39. Yes, Ichowned all the files to belong to pvcs. Is that a problem to you?

40. We're standardizing on AIX.

41. Wonder what THIS command does?

42. What did you say your (1) user name was...?

43. You did WHAT to the floppy??

44. Sorry, we deleted that package last week.

45. NO!!! Not THAT button!!!!

46. [looks at workstation] "Say, what version of DOS is this thing running?

47. YEEHAA!!! What a CRASH!!

48. What do you mean that could take down the whole network?

49. What's this switch for anyways?

50. Tell me again what that '-r' option to rm does...

51. Say, what does 'Superblock Error' mean anyhow?

52. If I knew it wasn't going to work, I would have tested it sooner.

53. Was that YOUR directory?

54. System coming down in 0 minutes...

55. The backup procedure works fine, but the restore is tricky!

56. Hey Fred, did you save that posting about restoring filesystems with vi and a toothpick? More importantly, did you print it out?

57. The spinkler system isn't supposed to leak is it?

58. It is only a minor upgrade, the system should be back up in a few hours. (said on a Monday afternoon)

59. I think we can plug just one more thing into this outlet strip without tripping the breaker.

60. What is all this I hear about static charges destroying computers?

61. I found this rabbit program that is supposed to test system performance, and I have it running now.

62. Ummm...Didn't you say you turned it ott?

63. The network's down, but we're working on it. Come back after dinner. (usually said at 11pm the night before a thesis deadline)

64. Oops! Everyone save your work! FAST!!

65. Boy, it's a lot easier when you know what you're doing.

66. I hate it when that happens.

67. Why did it say '/bin/rm: not found'?

68. You can do this patch with the system up...

69. What happens to a hard disk when you drop it?

70. Well, I've got a backup, but the only copy of the restore program was on THAT disk...

71. Hey, what does MKFS do?

72. Where did you say those backup tapes were kept?

73. ...and if we just swap these two disk controllers like this....

74. Don't do that, it'll crash the sys....DAMN!!!

75. What's this hash prompt on my terminal mean?

76. Now it's funny you should ask that, because I don't know either...

77. Can you get VMS for this Sparc thingy?

78. I don't care what he says, I'm NOT having it on MY network.

79. We don't support that. We WON'T support that.

80. ...and after I patched the microcode...

81. You've got TECO. What more do you want?

82. We prefer not to change the root password, it's a nice easy one...

83. Just add yourself to the password file and make a directory...


10) Competition is good. 90% market share is better.

9) We're disappointed that the US government failed to reach a reasonable settlement with Microsoft. We thought that our press release last year about Microsoft buying the US government took care of these little details.

8) We support a free marketplace. So long as our support is visibly branded everywhere, at any price.

7) The Road Ahead: Revised edition, "How to avoid the sink holes."

6) When in doubt, spend gobs of cash on ads in all the major newspapers on a one-day rampage against government. That always beats befriending politicians and bureaucrats.

5) We value our customers. That's why we only charge $75 per question on our toll-free tech support phone lines! (Hey, at least the phone call is free)!

4) Just because our marketing memos effectively caught us with our pants down and our hands in the cookie jar, doesn't mean we can't bully our way out of this mess.

3) We love the idea of competition. That's why we bought a huge chunk of Apple.

2) The US economy depends heavily on Microsoft's ability to release software patches on time. Yeah, and that also proves how insignificant and non-monopolistic we are as compared to our software competitors.

and finally,

1) No Netscape for you!

The Beauty of Mathematics

The Beauty of Mathematics

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Brilliant, isn't it?

And finally, take a look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=123456789 87654321

Old Home


Only you

A Friend should be Radical;

They should love you when you're unlovable,

Hug you when you're unhuggable,

And bear you when you're unbearable.

A Friend should be Fanatical;

They should cheer when the whole world boos,

Dance when you get good news,

And cry when you cry too.

But most of all, a Friend should be Mathematical,

They should multiply the joy, Divide the sorrow,

Subtract the past, And add to tomorrow,

Calculate the need deep in your heart,

And always be bigger than the sum of all their parts.

Only you can be

this kind of friend to me.

Please send this to a special friend.


I've searched around the world
from north to south, and east to west.

Day and night, in search of a friend
because I only wanted the best.

This friend must be kind and sincere,
happy and full of cheer.

Someone who knows how to have lots of fun,
and when times get rough, won't run.

Though I've searched the world looking for you,
my friendship wishes finally came true.


Friends are Special








Always There
