What gender are computers?

I've just been reading a very funny site (I'd give the link but I think I make a few threads out of it ). And one of the pages was about this subject and here are a few examples:
Quote:
What gender are computers? The debate rages on:

Five reasons computers must be female...

No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
Even your smallest mistakes are immediately committed to memory for future reference.
The native language used to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
The message, "Bad command or filename," is about as informative as "If you don't know why I'm mad at you, then I'm certainly not going to tell you."
As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

....and on the other hand.....

Five reasons computers must be male...

They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
The lights are on but nobody's home.
Big power surges knock them out for the night.
A better model is always just around the corner.

Based on an unoriginal email forwarded by Don Glasco, October 1997.
Now for your suggestions ........

My home computer is like a stereotypical woman with a mullet-type hairdo and martial arts skill: you do NOT make her cross or you will pay. Many thousands of times. To the nth degree.

When driving a Classic Mopar, be sure to run over as many Geo/Chevrolet Metros as possible.

my computer is a guy, i'm pretty sure. a good friend - they may not always tell me everything, but a little cajoling and they'll tell me what's wrong...
