A is for Apple

by Douglas Spencer, Computer Systems Administrator, Anderman and Co. Ltd.

    A is for APPLE who sent us our Macs, 
    D is for DEC, and they sold us a Vax. 
    C is the language in which we write source, 
and B is our sort, which is BROKEN, of course. 

E is an ERROR when code is compiled, F is a FORK for creating a child, G is the GETTY that sits on the line, and H is a HANGUP whic:^?{^Zo^?{bD^]NO CARRIER

I is the INTERCONNECTION of kit, J is the JOY when the cables all fit. K is for KERMIT, to copy a file, and L are the LINES that we drop all the while.

M is the MODEM we use from our home, N are the NIGHTS which we spend on the 'phone, O is the OUTPUT we get from the host, and P are the 'PHONE BILLS we get in the post.

Q for SIGQUIT makes our process abort, R is the REASON sigquit should be caught. S is the SIGNAL we catch and ignore, and T is the TRAP which we miss, and dump core.

U is for UNIX--I hope that is clear, V is the VISUAL editor here. W stands for the WINDOWS we use, and X for the windowing system we choose.

Y is for YACC, quite a specialist tool, Z for the snores from the programming pool. Written while waiting while dinner was cooking Submitted by chiyo to funny@looking.
