Bewildered of Devizes

To me, a gigabyte sounds just
Like something that you eat.
A cookie is a biscuit, and
A ram, a kind of sheep.

And widgets? What the hell are those?
My mum served spam for tea.
Software's not really soft at all,
And what's an ISP?


Computer-speak is great for those
Who find these things amusing.
But as for me, I merely find it
Terribly confusing.

    1. My CPUs are all being cleaned at the moment. Then I shall paint them blue; my favourite colour.

    1. If I spoke for everyone, Cro, there'd be no one to fix things when they go wrong....

  3. I preferred it when computers were bigger and I could imagine tiny creatures in there doing all the calculations and stuff. Now it's just some weird, very flat, magic. Not entirely sure I trust it.

    1. I'm sure the tiny creatures are still there, Patsy. It's just that they are now even tinier, with silly names.

  4. You've summed it up very well, Frances - though I like some of the technology!

    1. I like to use it, Rosemary. I just wish all the different bits had sensible names.
