763 – Computer Packet Pattern
Image by Patrick Hoesly
IF a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort, And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort, Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!
IF your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash, And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash, And your data is corrupted ’cause the index doesn’t hash, Then your situation’s hopeless, and your system’s gonna crash!
IF the label on the cable on the table at your house, Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse, But your packets want to tunnel on another protocol, That’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall!
IF your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss, So your icons in the window are as wavey as a souse, Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang, ‘Cause as sure as I’m a poet, the sucker’s gonna hang!
IF the copy of your floppy’s getting sloppy on the disk, And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary RISC, Then you have to flash your memory, and you’ll want to RAM your ROM. Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your MOM!

What is a Seamless Texture / Pattern?
A seamless texture is an special image, where one side of a image exactly matches the opposite side, so that the edges blend into each other when repeated. Seamless textures are used for desktop wallpaper, webpage backgrounds, video games, Photoshop fills and in 3D rendering programs.
How did you make it?
This texture was made using software specially designed to aid in seamless texture creation. Some of the programs I’ve use are Photoshop, Illustrator, Filter Forge, Genetica, Image Synth, Alien Skin, Topaz Labs, Imagelys, Wood Workshop, and even a pen and paper.
