Updated Sayings

My friend Bob (no, not that Bob, the other Bob) sent me an e-mail the other day with a list of cleverly updated aphorisms for the 21st century. I thought they were share-worthy, and so ...

- Home is where you hang your @.

- The e-mail of the species is deadlier than the mail (with apologies to Rudyard Kipling).

- 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 (or just crash).

- Windows will never cease.

- In Gates we trust.

- 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.

- Speed thrills.

- Give a man (or for that matter, anyone) a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to use The Net and he won't bother you for weeks.

And, of course, the obligatory cartoon ...

Any other suggestions, anyone? Leave a comment.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

The user and his leisure time is way too true.

Teach a guy to fish, and he'll feed himself for a lifetime; teach a guy to browse the internet and he'll spend too much time on games and porn.
