Murphy's Laws of Computing

I was given this by my first manager in an IT gig. I came across it again during a late night search trying to solve a downed production server without going into the office... Turns out I glanced @ it, got to number 10 and a light bulb popped over my head. I hate consultants and I hate tech support. Hope this brightens your a day - and let me know if you know the REAL author.

Murphy's Laws of Computing

  1. When computing, whatever happens, behave as though you meant it to happen.

  2. When you get to the point where you really understand your computer, it?s probably obsolete.

  3. The first place to look for information is in the section of the manual where you least expect to find it.

  4. When the going gets tough, upgrade.

  5. For every action, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.

  6. To err is human...to blame your computer for your mistakes is even more human, it is downright natural.

  7. He who laughs last probably made a back-up.

  8. If at first you do not succeed, blame your computer.

  9. A complex system that does not work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler system that worked just fine.

  10. The number one cause of computer problems is computer solutions.

  11. A computer program will always do what you tell it to do, but rarely what you want it to do.
