Lighter Side

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

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.
