Maxims for the Internet Age

Courtesy of this month's RayShaw.com.au Computer Newsletter. I've mentioned Ray's newsletters previously on this blog. Check them out.

I'm sure there's nothing new in these, but they're funny, clever and worth reiterating.

Maxims for the Internet age!
Thanks Margaret G for this:

• Home is where you hang your @
• A journey of a thousand sites begins with a single click.
• You can't teach a new mouse old clicks.
• Great groups from little icons grow.
• Speak softly and carry a cellular phone.
• C:\ is the root of all directories.
• Don't put all your hypes in one home page.
• Pentium wise; pen and paper foolish.
• The modem is the message.
• Too many clicks spoil the browse.
• The geek shall inherit the earth.
• A chat has nine lives.
• Don't byte off more than you can view.
• Fax is stranger than fiction.
• What boots up must come down.
• Windows will never cease.
• Virtual reality is its own reward.
• Modulation in all things.
• A user and his leisure time are soon parted.
• There's no place like http://www.home.com
• Know what to expect before you connect.
• Oh, what a tangled Website we weave when first we practice html.
• Give a person a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a person to use the Net and he won't bother you for weeks.

"There's no place like http://www.home.com"? If you want to be really geeky, then you'd have to say "There's no place like 127.0.0.1" or even "There's no place like ~". ;)
