KayPee’s Believe it or Not [1]

This is a true incident I heard during dinner from my … & its truly worth a chain mail and I really wish this will spread laughs and also some knowledge about the pathetic state of some colleges’ teachers.

A newly appointed professor in his first week in college is sitting in front of a Windows PC and types in a letter in Notepad. When finally he wants to take a printout of the text, he finds that there is no printer attached to the PC. He finds that the PC next to it has a printer. So he gets a briliant brainwave and does something really mindboggling to get the printout from the other PC. What is it?

a. Both the PCs are not connected to each other (either indirectly or through LAN)
b. He does not have any other plug n play storage device (usb drive, floppy, CD, etc)
c. He is a professor of Computer Science(Operating Systems)


He selects the text in notepad by Right Click -> Select All. Then he does a Right Click -> Copy. He then disconnects the mouse from his PC, takes it and connects it to the other PC, and does a Right Click -> Paste !!! No wonder, nothing got pasted.

    We have had different versions of the same thing .. ctrl-c on one comp .. ctrl-v on the other comp .. who needs the mouse in that case ๐Ÿ˜€ .. I have seen first years in college do that and they were wondering why was’nt it working.
