As translators we are doubtless all familiar with computers mysteriously crashing. A mystery no longer! For a good laugh, have a peek at this Dr.-Seuss-style explaination on this cute website:

Not Dr. Seuss per se Mar 15, 2004

It is cute. Being from Dr. Seuss's home town (Springfield, Massachusetts), I have to add a link to the originator - Gene Ziegler.

"In January 2004 Internet columnist Eric Shackle said that "A search of the internet shows that despite all that publicity, Ziegler has good reason to feel cranky and forgotten. When we googled his memorable phrase "socket packet pocket" we found about 3410 references. We checked out some of the websites. In nearly every case, the original poem had been cut in half, and posted without the author's name."
