Here’s to John

If any of you read the comments on my posts, you know that John Ambrose is my most devoted commenter. In fact, he generally has more than one comment on each post. So I decided to write a post in his honor. I will now commence with the geeky humor…

There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary, and those who don’t.

How many web programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?
It depends on the resolution of the lightbulb, how many people will be seeing it, and with what browsers…

How many IE programers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Nobody knows… they always stop when they realize the new lightbulb won’t be backwards-compatable.

And lastly, I declare today “John” day.

Happy John Day everyone!

    yeah, i can read it…i’m a geek at heart, but i try to hide it!
    i love the jokes, that’s classic…this is awesome too:

    At COMDEX recently, Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated, ” If GM had kept up with the technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon. ”

    In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release stating: If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:
    1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.
    2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.
    3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull over to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.
    4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.
    5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive, but would run on only five percent of the roads.
    6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single ” This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation ” warning light.
    7. The airbag system would ask ” Are you sure? ” before deploying.
    8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.
    9. Every time a new car was introduced, car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again, because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.
    10. Oh yeah, and last but not least . . . you’d have to press the “Start” button to turn the engine off!
