A Seafarin’ Computer Tale (Arrrrr!)

Category: Rated G

This anachronistic little gem was submitted by Jim Macaulay. If you are just too young to get the reference, “Nyaa, nyaa, nyaa!”


As a highly skilled computer technician, Joe was hired to synchronize the communication between the microchips in the various computers in a local network. His new boss had left him instructions on a series of post-it notes. The slips of paper were so numerous and jumbled that they were confusing to Joe and his colleagues. Finally, Joe decided to ignore his boss’ instructions. He simply discarded the notes and successfully completed the task on his own.

Upon his return, Joe’s boss asked him to describe the strategy that resulted in his success.

“That’s easy,” replied Joe. “Lose slips, synch chips!”
