Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. You will either see the joke below or a link to the joke, not the actual joke, although I will provide the Subject line (Topic). Since there are now HTML versions of all Digests, it will point to the joke itself. My contribution of Humor from the Archives:
    
    Here's a few more points about computers in movies.
    
    The people who use computers in the movies are SAY EVERY WORD AS THEY
    TYPE IT and say it slowly and deliberately.
    
    Floppy disks in the movies hold up to 25 Terabytes of data. (X Files
    when Scully discovers a file that contains the social security number of
    every resident of the USA  plus their vaccination details).
    
    The supercomputers of the 60s had magnetic tape drives with huge spools
    of magnetic tape which frequently changed the direction they were
    turning. (eg On board the Jupiter 2 in Lost is Space. Such inefficiency
    they could only have been using a small amount of tape and therefore
    could only have been storing or reading a few kilobytes of data).
    
    The supercomputers of the 60s also had huge display panels where square
    shaped lights would light up frequently and randomly. (eg Lost in Space.
    What was the point? Who could possibly have taken notice of all those
    lights and then said ''Ah that was 10011101 in register 7. That's the
    third time that's happened this minute").
    
    How come there are no more robots? Robots in the 60s often flashed a
    light as they spoke (eg the Robot from Lost in Space. Maybe they were
    flashing in morse and they were the first facility for deaf people
    watching TV). Robots also always had glass bubbles on their heads with
    lots of whirly things inside them.
