I don't need Plurk!

I don't have time for a new addiction - but I did want to check it out and see what was going on. So I joined (don't expect me to visit very often though) and explored a bit. Turns out there are Plurkebrities! Just what we need. :) Having said that it turns out that one of these Plurkebrities is Paulo Coelho! cool! So I went and looked at his plurks and he linked to the following list on his Myspace page. This is all becoming way too wired! But the list is fun:

Top ten reasons why computers are male

  • 10. They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
  • 9. A better model is always just around the corner.
  • 8. They look nice and shiny until you bring them home.
  • 7. It is always necessary to have a backup.
  • 6. They'll do whatever you say if you push the right buttons.
  • 5. The best part of having either one is the games you can play.
  • 4. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
  • 3. The lights are on but nobody's home.
  • 2. Big power surges knock them out for the night.
  • 1. Size does matter.

Top ten reasons why computers are female

  • 10. The instruction manual is mostly wishful thinking.
  • 9. Even after you've turned them on, they just sit there waiting for you to make the next move.
  • 8. Incorrectly worded commands are completely ignored, or worse, taken literally.
  • 7. They reveal all your secrets to anyone who wants to know.
  • 6. Upgrades react badly to things left behind by previous versions.
  • 5. Rules are absolute and there is no possibility of compromise.
  • 4. Whatever you buy for them, there will always be a newer version that they want.
  • 3. Nothing is ever "really" deleted... obsolete files will be brought up out of nowhere just to annoy you.
  • 2. Error messages always translate to: "Well if you don't know I'm not going to tell you."
  • 1. Despite your best efforts to prevent it, they continue to permit unauthorised entry.

OK, so if you can find your friends and Paulo Coelho on Plurk it's probably a good place to be. Now I have to find time!
