Programmer Jokes

  • Funny Jokes

    A programmer died after leading a rather quit life. This guy was lucky, he got a choice between going to heaven or hell.
    So he went on a tour of heaven with St. Peter. All around him people was singing and clapping hands or just leading a mild, peacefull existence. "Mmm, this ain't bad", thought the programmer. "But what does hell look like?", he wondered.
    Satan took him on a personal tour of Hell. They went to a bar with beautiful girls who did everything you asked with a smile. You didn't have to pay for anything, and It was situeted in a tropical paradise. "Now THIS I could go for."
    The programmer chose hell. The moment he set foot there, 4 ugly demons grabbed him and carried him off to a huge fire. Everything smelled fould and diseased, and there wasn't a sign of the tropical paradise he visited on the tour. So he asked Satan about it.
    Laughing evilly, Satan replied "That was the _demo_, man."

    In the beginning, God created the Bit and the Byte. And from those he created the Word.And there were two Bytes in the Word; and nothing else existed. And God separated the One from the Zero; and he saw it was good.And God said - Let the Data be; And so it happened. And God said - Let the Data go to their proper places. And he created floppy disks and hard disks and compact disks.And God said - Let the computers be, so there would be a place to put floppy disks and hard disks and compact disks. Thus God created computers and called them hardware.And there was no Software yet. But God created programs; small and big... And told them - Go and multiply yourselves and fill all the Memory.And God said - I will create the Programmer; And the Programmer will make new programs and govern over the computers and programs and Data.And God created the Programmer; and put him at Data Center; And God showed the Programmer the Catalog Tree and said You can use all the volumes and subvolumes but do more...

    Part 9 - (The Future of Real Programmers) - the final part
    --------------------------------------------------
    What of future? It is a matter of some concern to Real Programmers that the latest generation of
    computer programmers are not being brought up with the same outlook on life as their elders. Many of
    them have never seen a computer with a front panel. Hardly anyone graduating from school these days
    can do hex arithmetic without a calculator. College graduates these days are soft - protected from the
    realities of programming by source level debuggers, text editors that count parentheses, and "user friendly"
    opearing systems. Worst of all, some of these alleged "computer scientists" manage to get degrees without
    ever learning FORTRAN! Are we destined to become an industry of Unix hackers and PASCAL
    programmers?
    From my experience, I can only report that the furure is bright for Real Programmers everywhere. more...

    Some important theological questions can best be answered by
    thinking of God as a computer programmer:
    Q: Did God really create the world in seven days?
    A: He did it in six days and nights while living on cola and
    candy bars. On the seventh day he went home and found out his
    girlfriend had left him.
    Q: What causes God to intervene in earthly affairs?
    A: If a critical error occurs, the system pages him automatically
    and he logs on from home to try to bring it up. Otherwise, things
    can wait until tomorrow.
    Q: How come the Age of Miracles ended?
    A: That was the development phase of the project. Now we're in
    the maintenance phase.
    Q: Who is Satan?
    A: Satan is an MIS director who takes credit for more powers than
    he actually possesses, so nonprogrammers become scared of him.
    God thinks he's irritating but irrelevant.
    Q: Why does God allow evil to happen?
    A: God thought he eliminated evil in one of the earlier more...

    Part 4 - (Opearting Systems)
    ------------------------
    What kind of operating system is used by a Real Programmer? CP/M? God forbid - CP/M after all, is basically
    a toy operating system. Even little old ladies and grade school students can understand and use CP/M.
    Unix is a lot more complicated of course - the typical Unix hacker never can remember what the PRINT
    command is called this week - but when it gets right down to it, Unix is a glorified video game. People don't
    do Serious Work on Unix systems; they send jokes around the world on UUCP-net and write adventure games
    and research papers.
    No, your Real Programmer uses OS/370. A good programmer can find and understand the description of
    IJK305I error (s)he just got in h(er)is JCL manual. A great programmer can write JCL without referring to
    the manual at all. A truly outstanding programmer can find bugs burried in a 6 megabyte core dump without
    using a hex calculator. (I have more...
