Geek humor

From a RedHat FAQ on software RAIDs:
Q: Why is there no question 13?
A: If you are concerned about RAID, High Availability, and UPS, then its probably a good idea to be superstitious as well. It can't hurt, can it?
(For those of you scratching your heads, a RAID is where a server uses multiple disks with multiple copies of the same data to help guard against data disasters.)

Oh, oobee doo, I wanna be like you...

This is a bit tragic in that two people were hurt, but also a bit funny. A gorilla named Little Joe just made his second successful jailbreak from a Boston zoo. This time he actually escaped zoo grounds and was seen sitting at a bus stop. Evidently trying to catch the express bus out of town. After a high (well, medium) speed chase, he was eventually hit with four tranquilizer darts and recaptured.

Personally, I think the zoo should recognize his effort and just let him go!
