Y2K ready
From Sunil Sharma

A letter written by an employee in December 1999 retrieved from the record room:

Dear Boss,
I hope I havenít misunderstood your instructions. Because to be honest, boss, none of this Y to K dates problem makes any sense to me. At any rate I have finished converting all months on all company calendars so that the year 2000 is ready to go with the following improved months: Januark, Februark, Mak, Julk. In addition, I have changed the days of the week, and they are ó Sundak, Mondak, Tuesdak, Wednesdak, Thursdak, Fridak and Saturdak. Is it enough, or should I change any other Y to K? I am a fan of the New York Yankees. Should I call them New Kork Kankees in order to be Y2K ready?

Programmerís SOS

Once a programmer drowned in the sea. Many Marines were on the beach at that time but the programmer was shouting, F1, F1 and nobody understood it.

Computer illiterate

A CI (computer illiterate) reads in the manual that when you save something, it creates a file. The person saves what he/she is doing, then gets up, walks over to the file cabinet, and flips through the files, trying to find the new one.

A CI who follows baseball reads that his computer has 640 K memory. The CI then spends five or so hours trying to figure out how the computer can pitch a strikeout.

A CI refuses to use a laser printer because he/she fears it will burn a hole through the paper.

A CI buys a home computer with a hard disk. He/she unpacks the computer, sets it up, then calls the place he/she bought it from, complaining that there were no disks in the box at all, hard or floppy.
