a computer crash

本人除咗好鍾意英文外,老實講,亦非常沈迷上網.而以前未有Internet,就沉迷電腦,幫用Windows嘅朋友砌吓機,整吓機咁.自己用嘅Mac從來唔使點砌又唔會壞,就入系統自訂吓呢樣嗰樣,同埋會download唔同嘅icon呀,字款呀,shareware呀試吓等等,總之對住部電腦就好開心.
所以有日喺網上四處遊蕩嘅時候,驚見以下出處不明嘅英文詩,如獲至寶,覺得非常非常得意,趁機同大家分享吓.
呢首詩主要係想講番,喺電腦未盛行之前,我哋依家好多好熟悉嘅電腦詞彙,係有完全另外一個意思.
"A computer was something on TV
From a science fiction show of note
A window was something you hated to clean
And ram was the cousin of a goat.
Meg was the name of my girl friend
And gig was a job for the nights
Now they all mean different things
And that really mega bites
An application was for employment
A prgram was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano.
Memory was something you lost with age
A CD was a bank account
Log on was adding wood to the fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road.
Cut you did with a pocket knife
Paste  you did with glue
A wed was a spider's home
And virus was the flu.
I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens, they'll wish they were dead."
如果,我試下將首詩直譯嘅話,就會變成咁:
以前computer只會喺電視裡面出現
出現喺一部科幻鉅著當中
Window係我哋最憎去抹嘅嘢
Ram就係山羊類嘅老表
Meg係我前度女友嘅名字
Gig就係喺夜晚舉行嘅樂隊演出
依家統統都有唔同嘅意思
令我覺得不勝其煩
Application係就業必須嘅過程
Program係指一個電視節目
Cursor會用褻瀆嘅語言[筆者註:因與咒罵者curser同音字]
Keyboard即係鋼琴嘅琴鍵
Memory會隨年月消逝
CD係銀行戶口嘅一種
Log on係將木頭加入火堆
Hard drive係指駕駛一段崎嶇嘅路程
Cut係用小刀去切割
Paste用漿糊去貼
Web係蜘蛛嘅家
Virus係疾病嘅來源
我諗我最好都係用番我嘅紙張
同圭依靠我腦海嘅記憶
雖然我冇聽過電腦碰撞意外時會有人命傷亡
但如果真係發生嘅話,當事人寧可出事嘅係自己!
雖然當中好多嘅字大家都應該識,但亦有部分唔講都已經唔記得佢原本嘅意思.不過我諗我都係save起我嘅多愁善感,因為可能一轉眼,幾杯java過後,呢啲字又有另一番解釋.
