Slow here is a joke

Sorry guys and gals it was a slow news day…So here is another joke that came through my inbox of spam chain mail jokes and viagra offers 😛

Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they  got married, and had a little sweet potato, which they called ‘Yam.’
Of course, they wanted the best for Yam
When it was time, they told her about the facts of life.
They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she
wouldn’t get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like
‘Hot Potato,’ and end up with a bunch of Tater Tots.
Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!
But on the other hand she wouldn’t stay home and become a Couch Potato either.
She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her Shoestring cousins.
When she went off to Europe, Mr and Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out
for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland .
And the greasy guys from France called the French Fries. And when she
went out west, to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn’t get scalloped.
Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn’t
associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the
other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks
that say, ‘Frito Lay.’
Mr. and Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that’s Potato University )
so that when she graduated she’d really be in the Chips.
But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and
announced she was going to marry Tom Brokaw.
Tom Brokaw!
Mr. and Mrs. Potato were very upset.
They told Yam she couldn’t possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he’s
Are you ready for this?
Are you sure?
OK! Here it is!

lol get it? If not oh well sorry

Got a good joke or some news you would like to see on this site? Email it to [email protected] and I will see what can be done to put it up here 😀


Reverse engineering game – For the geeks among us

Well thanks to Hackaday I found this clash of clans hack tool interesting. But i have started to play other game and in my own opinion quite fun game. Its called Ruckingenur II [2]. The goal of the game is to use the tools provided to reverse engineer the given electronic device. If you sit and think for a second it is quite easy to figure out. I beat it in less than 30min. But it was well worth the download. It has the look of an older game and that I also like. So have fun and dont blow your self up playing it [You will see what I mean ;)]

HackADay’s post

[Zach Barth] has released Ruckingenur II, the game of reverse engineering. The latest in his Games for Engineers series, it is a full game with multiple levels and live action cut scenes. Set with a military theme, the goal is to reverse engineer enemy items. Pictured above is a lock to a weapons cache.

The pixelized style is consistent throughout. Even the cut scenes have the effect. The reverse engineering is fun enough to keep you interested while you learn. There is an in game help system that keeps you on track as well. Our only suggestion is that he get the best rifle scope next time!

Bill Gates VS GM

Slow day in the tech world so I will share this joke with you that passed through my inbox not to long ago.

At  a recent computer expo (COMDEX),Bill Gates  reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated,

‘If GM had kept up with 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 (and I just love this part):

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 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.  You’d have to press the ‘Start’ button to turn the engine  off

Like I said…very slow day 😛
