Lighter Side

© Tony Lawrence,

Computers can be funny. Unfortunately, too much of computer humor is of the "dumb user" sort. I'm not overly fond of that kind of humor usually, because it too often depends on inside knowledge or familiarity. It can be funny, but I think it loses its appeal quickly. If you like that kind of thing, see Computer Stupidities and this Stupid Tech Support.

So you won't find much if any of that here. You probably won't fall off your chair laughing at any of these either, but these are all true, at least mildly amusing, and computer related. They aren't necessarily all Unix and Linux, but some of them are. There are also computer related cartoons. Enjoy.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.

I am a Kerio reseller. Articles here related to Kerio products reflect my honest opinion, but I do have an obvious interest in selling those products also.

Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
