    A computer programmer's wife says to her husband "Darling, go to the market, and pick me up a gallon of milk. If they have eggs, bring me back six".

    Husband goes out, comes back in reasonable amount of time, and sets down six gallons of milk on the table. Wife looks at them, then at him with a look of disbelief, and asks "Why on earth did you buy six gallons of milk???".

    Husband says "Because they had eggs."

    Programmers think literally. Shouldn't be a surprise.

    Did you hear about the programmer who was trapped for three days in the shower?

    Hey, the shampoo bottle said: Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I had heard that joke in 1970, at my first programming job after college. Glad you like it.

    Question: How many programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?




































    Answer: None. It's a hardware problem. :whistling:

    If you knew how many hardware problems I have fixed in software (firmware). Fixing or hiding (just as good) a problem in software is always preferable to a hardware fix if possible because that lets you can easily fix the product that is already in the field.

    In some products the percentage of "Hardware Fix" code is probably approaching 5% or the total code.
