Gender of Computer

Posted by NIZA.Ati on Thursday, November 6, 2008 [ ]

As you are aware, ships have long been characterized as being female (for example, "Steady as she goes" or "She's listing to starboard, Captain!").


Recently, a group of computer scientists (all males) announced that computers should also be referred to as being female. Their top five reasons for drawing this conclusion were:

  1. No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.

  2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.

  3. The message "Bad command or file name" is about as informative as, "If you don't know why I'm mad at you, then I'm certainly not going to tell you."

  4. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.

  5. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.


However, another group of computer scientists (all female) think that computers should be referred to as if they were male. Their top five reasons were:


  1. They have a lot of data, but are still clueless.

  2. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem.

  3. As soon as you commit to one you realize that, if you had waited a little longer, you could have obtained a better model.

  4. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.

  5. Big power surges knock them out for the rest of the night.

Kata-Kata Ulama'

Kata Fathi Yakan dalam membincangkan tentang perjalanan dakwah dan jihad:Jalan ini adalah jalan yang takkan sanggup dilalui oleh mereka yang takutkan kesempitan rezeki & masa depan. Jalan yang takkan sanggup dilalui oleh mereka yang mementingkan hawa nafsu. Tidak sanggup dilalui oleh mereka yang semput dada dan tiada kekuatan. Sesungguhnya jalan ini takkan sanggup dilalui dengan tabah & tetap pendirian, kecuali oleh orang mukmin yang sentiasa bergantung pada Allah. Tak mampu dilalui dengan tabah, kecuali oleh jiwa yang sentiasa menggantungkan & mengharapkan sesuatu kepada Allah
