Ten Megs of RAM
the eternal memory of Theodor Geisel 1904-1991, who, as Dr. Suess,
taught bazillions of American kids that poetry should have rhyme and
meter, and can be recited effectively while running madly around the
house in your underwear. Try that with Robert Lowell!
I cram RAM.
I'm RAM-I-Cram and I sell RAM.
I do not have ten megs of RAM.
Do you code in C++?
I never code in C++
Play a game of Network Quake?
That is not my idea of fun;
Build a swapfile like NT's!
RAM, you can nag till hell might freeze;
Fill your laptop to the brim!
Not in my lap! Not COD!
Hmmmm...have you tried ten megs of RAM?
(Long pause, mouse clicks, disk noises)
You've won again, you nasty man;
Well, sure, the payoff's worth that risk;
...do you have four gigs of disk?
