run the fuck away

New Tarot spread...

I was playing with my Mage:The Ascension Tarot deck (yeah, I'm that guy), and came up with a new spread. 8 cards.


RAM:
what you should be thinking about, keeping in the front of your mind.

Hard Disk:
something to remember, something that's already there, but should be examined.

NIC:
how you connect with the outside world, what colors your interactions.

Video:
what you should see in your situation.

Keyboard:
generic advice, simple text input

Mouse:
What you should do

Bus:
How all these things communicate. The link between them all.

CPU
How to understand all of these things in relation, the sum of them.

Blatant theft from revolutionnare...

"On two occasions, I have been asked [by members of Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."
-- Charles Babbage (1791-1871)

Over 100 years ago, people were already asking stupid questions to IT support engineers.

I feel your pain, Mr. Babbage
