    Talking Hehe! A funny computer story :)

    Taken from http://www.laughpit.com/jokes/comphumor/borgwin.html

    I though this was funny, and I felt like spreading the joy.

    enjoy -

    The Borg Take on Windows

    "Mr. LaForge, have you had any success with your

    attempts at finding a weakness in the Borg? And Mr. Data, have

    you been able to access their command pathways?"

    >> >

    "Yes, Captain. In fact, we found the answer by searching

    through our archives on late Twentieth-century computing

    technology. We have found something called 'Microsoft" that may help!"

    >> >

    "What the hell is 'Microsoft'?"

    >> >

    "Allow me to explain. We will send this

    program, for some reason called 'Windows', through the Borg

    command pathways. Once inside their root command unit, it will

    begin consuming system resources at an unstoppable rate."

    >> >

    "But the Borg have the ability to adapt. Won't they

    alter their processing systems to increase their storage

    capacity?"

    >> >

    "Yes, Captain. But when 'Windows' detects this, it

    creates a new version of itself known as an 'upgrade'. The use

    of resources increases exponentially with each iteration. The

    Borg will not be able to adapt quickly enough. Eventually all of

    their processing ability will be taken over and none will be

    available for their normal operational functions."

    >> >

    "Excellent work. This is even better than that

    'unsolvable geometric shape' idea."

    >> >

    .. . . 15 Minutes Later . . .

    >> >

    "Captain, We have successfully installed the 'Windows'

    in the command unit and as expected it immediately consumed 85%

    of all resources. We however have not received any confirmation

    of the expected 'upgrade'."

    >> >

    "Our scanners have picked up an increase in Borg

    storage and CPU capacity to compensate, but we still have no

    indication of an 'upgrade' to compensate for their increase."

    >> >

    "Data, scan the history banks again and determine if

    their is something we have missed."

    >> >

    "Sir, I believe their is a reason for the failure in the

    'upgrade'. Appearently the Borg have circumvented that part of

    the plan by not sending in their registration cards.

    >> >

    "Captain we have no choice. Requesting permission to

    begin emergency escape sequence 3F . . ."

    >> >

    "Wait, Captain I just detected their CPU

    capacity has suddenly dropped to 0% !"

    >> >

    "Data, what does your scanners show?"

    >> >

    "Appearently the Borg have found the internal 'Windows'

    module named 'Solitaire' and it has used up all the CPU capacity."

    >> >

    "Lets wait and see how long this 'solitaire' can

    reduce their functionality."

    >> >

    .. . . Two Hours Pass . . .

    >> >

    "Geordi whats the status on the Borg?"

    >> >

    "As expected the Borg are attempting to re-engineer to

    compensate for increased CPU and storage demands, but each time

    they successfully increase resources I have setup our closest

    deep space monitor beacon to transmit more 'windows' modules

    from something called the 'Microsoft fun-pack'.

    >> >

    "How much time will that buy us ?"

    >> >

    "Current Borg solution rates allow me to predicate an

    interest time span of 6 more hours."

    >> >

    "Captain, another vessel has entered our sector."

    >> >

    "Identify."

    >> >

    "It appears to have markings very similar to the

    'Microsoft' logo"

    >> >

    "THIS IS ADMIRAL BILL GATES OF THE

    MICROSOFT FLAGSHIP MONOPOLY. WE HAVE POSITIVE CONFIRMATION OF

    UNREGISTERED SOFTWARE IN THIS SECTOR. SURREDER ALL ASSETS AND

    WE CAN AVOID ANY TROUBLE. YOU HAVE 10 SECONDS"

    >> >

    "The alien ship has just opened its forward hatches and

    released thousands of humanoid shaped objects."

    >> >

    "Magnify forward viewer on the alien craft"

    >> >

    "Good God captain! Those are humans floating straight

    toward the Borg ship with no life support suits ! How can they

    survive the tortures of deep space ?!"

    >> >

    "I don't believe that those are humans sir, if you will

    look closer I believe you will see that they are carrying

    something recognized by twenty-first century man as doe skin

    leather briefcases, and wearing Armani suits"

    >> >

    "Lawyers !!"

    >> >

    "It can't be. All the Lawyers were rounded up and

    >> > sent hurtling into the sun in 2017 during the Great Awakening."

    >> >

    "True, but appearently some must have survived."

    >> >

    "They have surrounded the Borg ship and are covering it

    >> > with all types of papers."

    >> >

    "I believe that is known in ancient venacular as 'red

    >> > tape' it often proves fatal."

    >> >

    "They're tearing the Borg to pieces !"

    >> >

    "Turn off the monitors. I can't stand to watch, not

    >> > even the Borg deserve that."

    ::laughs and laughs:: Very good laugh at 9:30 am...even though I'm not a Star Trek fan (like cwk9) but still very good. Especially the "Microsoft fun-pack" part, hehe...
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.
