If you have more toys than your kids
If you need a checklist to turn on the TV
If your I.Q. number is bigger than your weight
If you have introduced your kids by the wrong name
If you can remember 7 computer passwords but not your anniversary
If you have a habit of destroying things in order to see how they work
If you rotate your screen savers more frequently than your automobile tires
If the microphone or visual aids at a meeting don’t work and you rush up to the front to fix it
If you have a functioning home copier machine, but every toaster you own turns bread into charcoal
If you have memorized the program scheduled for the Discovery channel and have seen most of the shows already

As per women, computer is masculine because -
1. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
2. They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
3. They are supposed to help you solve your problems, but half the time they ARE the problem.
4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you had waited a little longer, you might have had a better model.
As per men, computer is feminine because -
1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
3. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

“Well, Bill, I’m really confused on this call. I’m not sure whether to send you to Heaven or Hell. After all, you enormously helped society by putting a computer in almost every home in America, yet you also created that ghastly Windows ’95. I’m going to do something I’ve never done before. I’m going to let you decide where you want to go.”
Bill replied, “Well, what’s the difference between the two?”
God said, “I’m willing to let you visit both places briefly, to see if it will help your decision.”
“Fine, but where should I go first?” Bill asked.
“I’ll leave that up to you.” God replied.
“Okay then,” said Bill, “let’s try Hell first.”
So Bill went to Hell. It was a beautiful, clean, sandy beach with clear waters and lots of long-legged women running around, playing in the water, laughing and frolicking about. The sun was shining; the temperature perfect. He was very pleased.
“This is great,” he told God. “If this is hell, I really want to see Heaven.”
“Fine,” said God, and off they went.
Heaven was a place high in the clouds, beautiful and sunny, with angels drifting about, playing harps and singing. It was nice, but not as enticing as Hell.
Bill thought for a quick minute, and rendered his decision.
“Hmmm. I think I’d prefer Hell,” he told God.
“Fine,” replied God, “as you desire.”
So Bill Gates went to Hell.
Two weeks later, God decided to check on the late billionaire to see how he was doing in Hell. When he got there, he found Bill, shackled to a wall screaming amongst hot flames in dark caves, surrounded with heavy thick-legged women and being burned and tortured by demons, with no one to help him out of his dilemma no matter how loud he screamed.
“How’s everything going?” He asked Bill.
Bill responded with his voice filled with anguish and tormented disappointment.
“This is awful. This is nothing like the Hell I visited two weeks ago. I can’t believe this is happening. What happened to that other place, with the beaches and the long-legged women playing in the water????”
“Oh,” God said, “that was Hell 3.1. This is Hell 95.”

Bill Clinton, Boris Yeltsin, and Bill Gates were called in by God. God informed them that he was very unhappy about what was going on in this world. Since things were so bad, he told the three that he was destroying the Earth in 3 days. They were all allowed to return to their homes and businesses and tell their friends and colleagues what was happening. God did tell them though, that no matter what they did he was “not” changing his mind.
Bill Clinton went in and told his staff, “I have good news and bad news for you. First the good news . . . there “is” a God. The bad news is that he is destroying the Earth in 3 days.”
Boris Yeltsin went back and told his staff, “I have good news and terrible news. The first is that there “is” a God. The second is that he is destroying the Earth in 3 days.”
Bill Gates went back and told his staff, “I have good news and good news. First, God thinks I am one of the three most important people in the world. Secondly, you don’t have to fix the bugs in Windows 95.

Satan greets him: “Welcome Mr. Gates, we’ve been waiting for you. This will be your home for all eternity. You’ve been selfish, greedy and a big liar all your life. Now, since you’ve got me in a good mood, I’ll be generous and give you a choice of three places in which you’ll be locked up forever.
Satan takes Bill to a huge lake of fire in which millions of poor souls are tormented and tortured. He then takes him to a massive coliseum where thousands of people are chased about and devoured by starving lions. Finally, he takes Bill to a tiny room in which there is a bottle of the finest wine sitting on a table. To Bill’s delight, he sees a PC in the corner. Without hesitation, Bill says “I’ll take this option.”
“Fine,” says Satan, allowing Bill to enter the room. Satan locks the room after Bill.
As he turns around, he bumps into Lucifer. “That was Bill Gates!” cried Lucifer. “Why did you give him the best place of all!”
“That’s what everyone thinks” snickered Satan.
“The bottle has a hole in it!”
“What about the PC?”
“It’s got Windows 95!” laughed Satan.
“And it’s missing three keys,”
“Control, Alt and Delete.”

The start of the new school term always brings out the most interesting questions for computer consultants on campus. The predominant questions this term pertain to “getting into” E-mail and how to access the “Information Highway.”
An obviously distraught student came into the consulting office yesterday complaining that his E-mail wasn’t working. His attempts to get tickets for an on-campus concert kept resulting in returned mail.
He showed me the mail address he was attempting to reach. I asked him where he obtained such an unusual mail address.
He replied, “The sign advertising the concert said, ‘begins@7:30PM’.”
