There was a software engineer, who used to develop programs on his
Pentium machine,
sitting under a tree on the banks of a river. He used to earn his bread by
selling those programs
in the Sunday market.

One day, while he was working, his machine tumbled off the table and
fell in the river.

Encouraged by his childhood story of the lumberjack and axe, he started
praying for the
river Goddess. River Goddess wanted to test him and so appeared only after one
month of rigorous
prayers. The engineer told her that he lost his computer in the river. As usual,
the Goddess
wanted to test his honesty.

She picked ! up a match box and asked "Is this your computer ?".
Disappointed by the Goddess' lack of computer awareness, "No" replied
the engineer.


Then she picked up a pocket sized calculator and asked if that was it.
Annoyed by this, the engineer said "No, not at all" and also thought of
educating the
Goddess about computers.


Then she picked up his Pentium and asked if it was his.
The engineer, left with no option, sighed and said "Yes !" and took his
machine.


The Goddess was happy for his honesty and was about to give the previous
objects also to
him. But even before she could make the offer, the engineer asked the Goddess,"
Don't you know
that you should show me some better computers, before bringing up my own ?"
Goddess, apparently
angered at this, replied, "I know that, you stupid donkey! The first two things
I showed you were
Millennium and Trillennium, the latest computers from IBM" and disappeared. The
Pentium followed
her.

Moral: If you don't know much, better keep quiet.


Conclusion: Hardware develops faster than a software engineer.
