    I came across this while searching for some study info on the net, made me grin:biggrin


    Murphy's Laws relative to hardware.


    Law of Inconvenient Malfunction: A device will fail at the least opportune possible moment.

    Law of Cable Compatibility: If you choose a cable and a connector at random, the probability that they are compatible is equal to zero.

    Law of Hardware Compatibility: The probability of a given peripheral being compatible with a PC is inversely proportional to the immediate need for that peripheral.

    Law of Bad Sectors: The probability that an untested diskette will have bad sectors is directly proportional to the importance of the data written onto the diskette.

    First Law of Selective Gravitation: When an object is dropped, it will fall in such a way as to cause the greatest possible damage to itself and/or other objects on which it lands.

    Second Law of Selective Gravitation: The tendency for an object to be dropped is directly proportional to its value.

    Law of Reality Change: Unalterable hardware specifications will change as necessary to maximize frustration for personnel affected by said specifications.

    Law of Expectation: Consumer expectations always outpace advances in hardware technology.

    Law of the Titanic: If a device cannot malfunction, it will.
