Best Disk Quotes

  1. “The simplest forms in the universe are the sphere and the circle. I represent them by disks and then I vary them… spheres of different sizes, densities, colours and volumes, floating in space, traversing clouds, sprays of water, currents of air, viscosities and odours – of the greatest variety and disparity.” ~ Alexander Calder
  2. “I have not lost my mind – it’s backed up on disk somewhere.” ~ Steven Wright
  3. “Radio news is bearable. This is due to the fact that while the news is being broadcast, the disk jockey is not allowed to talk.” ~ Fran Lebowitz
  4. “Computer security can simply be protecting your equipment and files from disgruntled employees, spies, and anything that goes bump in the night, but there is much more. Computer security helps ensure that your computers, networks, and peripherals work as expected all the time, and that your data is safe in the event of hard disk crash or a power failure resulting from an electrical storm. Computer security also makes sure no damage is done to your data and that no one is able to read it unless you want them to.” ~ Bruce Schneier
  5. “The same way a compact disk isn’t responsible for what’s recorded on it, that’s how we are. You’re about as free to act as a programmed computer. You’re about as one-of-a-kind as a dollar bill.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk

  6. “The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been requested to assist in the investigation of reported sightings of flying disks.” ~ J. Edgar Hoover

  8. “As I got closer it looked like a weather balloon, gray and about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the darn thing it didn’t look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer, a disk.” ~ Deke Slayton
  9. “Rushing to optimize before the bottlenecks are known may be the only error to have ruined more designs than feature creep. From tortured code to incomprehensible data layouts, the results of obsessing about speed or memory or disk usage at the expense of transparency and simplicity are everywhere. They spawn innumerable bugs and cost millions of man-hours – often, just to get marginal gains in the use of some resource much less expensive than debugging time” ~ Eric S. Raymond
  10. “The view of the Earth from the Moon fascinated me — a small disk, 240,000 miles away. . . . Raging nationalistic interests, famines, wars, pestilence, don’t show from that distance.” ~ Frank Borman

  11. “A puck is a hard rubber disk that hockey players strike when they can’t hit one another.” ~ Jimmy Cannon
  12. “Or maybe, he thought now, he just didn’t recognize all those other girls. The way a computer drive will spit out a disk if it doesn’t recognize the formatting. When he touched Eleanor’s hand, he recognized her. He knew.” ~ Rainbow Rowell
  13. “This unlikely story begins on a sea that was a blue dream, as colorful as blue-silk stockings, and beneath a sky as blue as the irises of children’s eyes. From the western half of the sky the sun was shying little golden disks at the sea–if you gazed intently enough you could see them skip from wave tip to wave tip until they joined a broad collar of golden coin that was collecting half a mile out and would eventually be a dazzling sunset.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
  14. “I can’t predict how reading habits will change. But I will say that the greatest loss is the paper archive – no more a great stack of manuscripts, letters, and notebooks from a writer’s life, but only a tiny pile of disks, little plastic cookies where once were calligraphic marvels.” ~ Paul Theroux
  15. “Roman influence seeds itself, sprouting mighty oaks right through the modern forest of computers, digital disks, microviruses and space satellites.” ~ Anne Rice

  16. “Technology has moved away from sharing and toward ownership. This suits software and hardware companies just fine: They create new, bloated programs that require more disk space and processing power. We buy bigger, faster computers, which then require more complex operating systems, and so on.” ~ Douglas Rushkoff
  17. “I scooted over, patting the bed next to me. “No such luck. And now you get to watch forty straight hours of Easton Heights with me!” He turned on the first disk, shaking his head, then got onto the bed next to me. “Small price to pay for getting to hold your hand.” I wasn’t cold anymore.” ~ Kiersten White
  18. “Who says you cannot hold the moon in your hand? Tonight when the stars come out and the moon rises in the velvet sky, look outside your window, then raise your hand and position your fingers around the disk of light. There you go . . . That was easy!” ~ Vera Nazarian
  19. “I had already developed inherited back problems. I had degenerative disk disease, a form of scoliosis, arthritis. And I truly believe that if it weren’t for the use of steroids – I’m not saying steroids is for everyone, but in my case in general, if I have not used steroids, I mean, physically right now I’d probably be a wreck.” ~ Jose Canseco
  20. “Hard disks have disappointed me more than most technologies.” ~ Steve Wozniak

  21. “Now clearly this advantage is when the data on tape has been found and just needs to be transferred back. You need to add a minute or so of seek time to find the data. On large transfers, though, tape should outpace most disk systems. From an ingest perspective, LTO-6 and other enterprise tape formats may be unrivaled when compared on a single unit basis.” ~ George Arthur Crump
  22. “… All the drivers that started the replace-tape-with-disk movement in the first place – reliability, performance, portability and off-site data movement – are now liabilities in a disk only strategy.” ~ George Arthur Crump
  23. “A disk unbeknownst to the director can go to the producer in another city or in another office and that producer can edit behind the director’s back much easier than in the old days. Since these dailies are now put on videotape, more kinds of people have access to dailies.” ~ John Frankenheimer
  24. “I mean, this whole digital revolution is really eroding the director’s importance on a movie because, number one, just from a practical standpoint, with floppy disks and the ability to put all of the film onto a disk, more people have access to the movie.” ~ John Frankenheimer
  25. “The Frisbee is a round disk. That’s the somethingness. But it has another side; it has a nothingness which you cannot perceive with your physical mind or your senses.” ~ Frederick Lenz

  26. “The radio voice, you’re in the studio, there’s nobody around, and you’re using your personality and enunciation skills to get the message across. At the stadium, there are vendors, there are people, the fans talking to each other. It’s very difficult. If you were to speak as a radio disk jockey, no one would ever understand what you’re saying.” ~ Charlie Brotman
  27. “The steady state of disks is full.” ~ Ken Thompson
  28. “Eagle of flowers! I see thee stand, And on the sun’s noon-glory gaze; With eye like his, thy lids expand, And fringe their disk with golden rays: Though fix’d on earth, in darkness rooted there, Light is thy element, thy dwelling air, Thy prospect heaven.” ~ James Montgomery
  29. “The vestiges of pagan religion in Christian symbology are undeniable. Egyptian sun disks became the halos … The pre-Christian God Mithras … had his birthday celebrated on December 25 … Even Christianity’s weekly holy day was stolen from the pagans … Christianity honored the Jewish Sabbath of Saturday, but Constantine shifted it to coincide with the pagans’ veneration of the day of the sun … To this day, most churchgoers attend services on Sunday morning with no idea that they are there on account of the pagan sun god’s weekly tribute- Sunday.” ~ Dan Brown
  30. “DJs used to be American heroes. No more. Today, being a disk jockey is generally regarded as being slightly more respectable than snatching purses for a living, or robbing graves.” ~ Larry Lujack

  31. “Good necessitates evil and the two sides of that disk are not always clearly marked.” ~ Ann Leckie
  32. “There’s two different disks recorded at two different shows. And they’re two very different shows. The San Francisco disk was in front of 450 people and was a real professional show where people did their best stuff. So to some people that’s going to be their favorite disk.” ~ B. J. Porter
  33. “Intimacy is really good. But then again, the first disk on the record is not intimate in the least. It’s a really good CD.” ~ Scott Aukerman
  34. “I continue coupling a plate of silver with one of zinc, and always in the same order… and place between each of these couples a moistened disk. I continue to form a column. If the column contains about twenty of these couples of metal, it will be capable of giving to the fingers several small shocks.” ~ Alessandro Volta
  35. “The thing about HD-DVD that is attractive to Microsoft is that it’s very pro-consumer in letting you copy all movies up onto the hard disk.” ~ Bill Gates

  36. “Tape is the archiving champ and has been for decades. Reliable, less expensive than disks and available in large-scale robotic systems that store petabytes.” ~ Robert Harris
  37. “Limit use of shareware and public domain software to systems without fixed disks. If you do use them on fixed disks, allocate separate subdirectories… Public domain or shareware software should never be placed in the root directory.” ~ John McAfee
  38. “Let Ra grant to me a view of the Disk (the Sun), and a sight of Ah (the Moon) unfailingly each day. Let my Ba-soul come forth to walk about hither and thither and whithersoever it pleaseth.” ~ Raymond O. Faulkner
  39. “Adding hardware to any computer is hard. The reality is, you’re sticking in disks, trying to run installers. We do a very sophisticated installation and de-install but it’s invisible to the user and happens almost instantaneously.” ~ Jeff Hawkins
  40. “This whole earth which we inhabit is but a point in space. How far apart, think you, dwell the most distant inhabitants of yonder star, the breadth of whose disk cannot be appreciated by our instruments?” ~ Henry David Thoreau

  42. “The hours here are flat and round, disks of gray layered one on top of the other…they move slowly, at a grind, until it seems as though they are not moving at all. They are just pressing down.” ~ Lauren Oliver
  43. “Tape allows for a clean sweep of data that simply doesn’t need to be on any form of disk but still needs to be kept. The cost and capacity of tape makes these ‘just in case’ copies very affordable.” ~ George Arthur Crump
  44. “By now you know: I come from another planet. But I will never say to you, “Take me to your leaders.” Even I–unused to your ways though I am–would never make that mistake. We ourselves have such beings among us, made of cogs, pieces of paper, small disks of shiny metal, scraps of colored cloth. I do not need to encounter more of them. Instead I will say, “Take me to your trees. Take me to your breakfasts, your sunsets, your bad dreams, your shoes, your nouns. Take me to your fingers; take me to your deaths.” These are worth it. These are what I have come for.” ~ Margaret Atwood
  45. “The instant that the blade tore open his flesh, the bright disk of the sun soared up and exploded behind his eyelids.” ~ Yukio Mishima

  46. “There are celestial sights more dazzling, spectacles that inspire more awe, but to the thoughtful observer who is privileged to see them well, there is nothing in the sky so profoundly impressive as the canals of Mars. Fine lines and little gossamer filaments only, cob webbing the face of the Martian disk, but threads to draw one’s mind after them across the millions of miles of intervening void.” ~ Percival Lowell
  47. “The paintings are transferred from my computer to a disk, and I can hand it to the printer this way; or I can modem the painting to the printer over the phone lines from my house in Hawaii.” ~ Buffy Sainte-Marie
  48. “When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured.” ~ Hermann Hesse
  49. “Singaporeans, if I can chose an analogy, we are the hard disk of a computer, the foreign talent are the megabytes you add to your storage capacity. So your computer never hangs because you got enormous storage capacity.” ~ Lee Kuan Yew
  50. “I’ve got an L3 bulging disk and degenerating disk. It’s bulging in two places. Yeah, it’s not good.” ~ Retief Goosen

  51. “The second disk was taped at our all-night anniversary show. And some of those sets are taped at like 4:30 or 5 in the morning, when people are a little groggy and not doing what they would do if they knew it was being recorded. That said, that disk has an entirely different flavor. It’s more experimental. It has more of the newcomers on it. It has people doing stuff that you won’t see on Comedy Central or HBO specials.” ~ B. J. Porter
  52. “With current technology it is possible to put four floppy disk drives in a personal computer. It is just that doing so would be pointless.” ~ Andrew S. Tanenbaum
  53. “I did everything when I started. In Miami I did news, I did weather, I did sports, I did disk-jockeying. And I did a sports talk show every week – every Saturday night.” ~ Larry King
  54. “Once you’ve got the makings of a star, gravity draws leftover gas and dust into a giant swirling disk. The dust continues to stick together, clumping into rocky asteroids, which eventually become orbiting rocky planets. And voila: a solar system!” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson
  55. “Computers will never take the place of books. You can’t stand on a floppy disk to reach a high shelf.” ~ Sam Ewing

  56. “Brian Posehn went up at 4:45 in the morning. And he gets lost at a certain point. I don’t know if we kept him getting lost on the CD. That joke isn’t as technically well delivered as I’m sure it is in his Comedy Central special. But the whole disk has this looseness and flavor to it where anything can happen that a lot of people will prefer.” ~ B. J. Porter
  57. “My skills weren’t that I knew how to design a floppy disk, I knew how to design a printer interface, I knew how to design a modem interface; it was that, when the time came and I had to get one done, I would design my own, fresh, without knowing how other people do it. That was another thing that made me very good. All the best things that I did at Apple came from (a) not having money, and (b) not having done it before, ever. Every single thing that we came out with that was really great, I’d never once done that thing in my life.” ~ Jessica Livingston
  58. “Since so many people these days don’t seem to start their families until around age forty, I predict there will be less child beating, but more slipped disks from lifting babies out of cribs. Even the father of advanced age who’s not inclined to spare the rod is likely to suffer more than his victim: The first punch he throws might well be the last straw for his rotator cuff, reducing his disciplinary options to mere verbal abuse and napping.” ~ Sarah Silverman
  59. “Kids have little computer bodies with disks that store information. They remember who had to do the dishes the last time you had spaghetti, who lost the knob off the TV set six years ago, who got punished for teasing the dog when he wasn’t teasing the dog and who had to wear girls boots the last time it snowed.” ~ Erma Bombeck
  60. “In the game of Frisbee, you throw the disk to someone else. The point of Frisbee is perfect communication. The person at the other end of the field is receiving an impression, a vibration from you.” ~ Frederick Lenz

  61. “The first human-to-computer uploads of 2100 will prove that a perfect simulation is the thing being simulated – that a silicon soul doesn’t need a physical body to inhabit. So eventually everybody who ever lived will be resurrected inside a living machine indistinguishable from God. Isn’t it amazing what you can do with unlimited hard-disk space?” ~ Frank J. Tipler
  62. “Code is not like other how-computers-work books. It doesn’t have big color illustrations of disk drives with arrows showing how the data sweeps into the computer. Code has no drawings of trains carrying a cargo of zeros and ones. Metaphors and similes are wonderful literary devices but they do nothing but obscure the beauty of technology.” ~ Charles Petzold
  63. “As system virtualization becomes mainstream, IT managers will find a greater need for disk imaging for disaster recovery and systems deployment,.” ~ Walter Scott

  64. “My sin is the black spot which my bad act makes, seen against the disk of the Sun of Righteousness. Hence religion and sin come and go together.” ~ Charles Henry Parkhurst
  65. “Clothes, when abstracted from the flow of present time and their transmogrifying function on the human body, and seen as forms in themselves, are strange tubes and excrescences worthy of being classed with such facial decorations as the ring through the nose or the lip-stretching disk. But how enchanting they become when seen togetherwith the qualities they bestow on their wearer! What happens then is no less than the infusion, into some tangled lines on a piece of paper, of the meaning of a great word.” ~ Robert Musil
