Story of RAM

I'm RAM, working at a desktop

computer.Being so absent-minded , I

know nothing about where I came

from,and of which brand I am.My boss

cpu, generally regarded as brain of the

whole computer though, his brain

extremely small, and memory appears

even poorer than mine. He continually

asked me what it stored at some certain

addresses on some certain pages. All

the time I told him patiently. 

However, within merely a second he can

forget all about it and asked once

again. Sometimes I lost patience and

complained,"My god, you've been so

bothersome, why not try to remember

something useful for yourself?" He

replied,"I'm so sorry, my fellow, but

I've got no idea. Working all day long

I nearly got a headache. So heavy the

burden it is."

I won't quarrel with him, he has a

small brain, simple thoughts. Although

he's my boss, every time he gets up he

has no idea of what to do, must fetch

BIOS in a hurry,"Hey, my dear fellow,

what we gonna do today?" BIOS

impatiently lists him the essential

tasks and goes to sleep. Then it's time

for cpu and me to get engaged.

Among all my colleagues, I like hard

disk the best. He has a large brain, a

particularly good memory. He speaks

slowly, but seldom makes any mistakes.

A depth-thought guy he is. So does cpu

think, but he's such a fool, frequently

forgot who the hard disk is. Every time

the computer boots and starts self-

inspection, my boss asked me,

"Hey, who's he?"
"ST!"I repeated.

Hard disk seems gloomy. I thought

technical work is no good for man as

melancholic as him, sooner or later

very possibly he might suffer agony of

schizophrenia. However, he considered

it as total nonsense.

I forget a lot after I go to sleep, but

I've never forgot any friend of mine.

One part on my body called CMOS, which

stays at the bottom of my heart, on it

embeded names of my friends. In my

opinion, there are something you should

remember forever, while no big problem

to forget all the others.

BIOS is a flaky guy, sleeping all the

time but forever the first to get up.

He let us start self inspection, boot

the computer and goes back to sleep. He

cannot sleep any longer if I turned off

BIOS Shadow. But when I saw him so

sleepy and exhausted, I got sympathized

with him. He doesn't care much of the

others, and nobody knows him. Only

after the love affair of ST did I start

to know him.

Long,long time ago, there once came a

laptop hard disk, very lovely she was,

to be honest I also liked her. But now

I've almost forgot all things except

she was lovely. That's why I'm lucky. I

can forget which was supposed to be

forgot,but poor ST kept in mind all.

After she left, ST appeared bizarre.

Every time his magneto resistive ran

over some space, we sensed an unusual

electric current.

"How's hard disk doing?" I asked CPU.
"Who's hard disk?"

So I recognized it's useless for any

further talking with him. BIOS shrugged

off,"That fool fell in love." I know

nothing about love since I have a poor

memory. It seems that someone and some

circumstances really occured to me in

my life, but I forgot them easily.

BIOS told me,"Memory has never been so

serious a case for you, since you can

always forget easily. But for some

memory embedded in one's life it must

have included suffering." I felt his

words hard to understand, but I

remembered BIOS has once been updated,

he was extremely painful, as he's gonna

die. Unlike them, I almost have no

memory for my own ...I got envious of

them, they have their memory but I

don't. From then on, I learned what the

term "melancholic" means, I embedded

the word on my CMOS.

Day by day it seemed hard disk

gradually stuck into a worse situation.

Till one day, cpu asked me,"What's the

next instruction?" I took a look and

got a shock, "format"

"What's that?" cpu seemed so exited,

what a fool.

I told him clearly. I didn't know why I

did so.

Hard disk hesitated for a long time, so

painfully, and finally gave a respond.

Track 0 bad,Disk unusable。

Power was cut off, for a long time I

stayed in darkness, kept waiting...

A month later hard disk came back.

Maybe it was after his last struggle he

had to face the most cruel result--low

format. His memory went totally blank,

just like a baby. We were sad about it,

but it's good to him, at least he won't

be painful any longer.

The laptop hard disk came to us again

to get back the lost data."Hi,ST" she

said, "You forgot me?" Hard disk didn't

say anything, low format seemed to hurt

him badly. After a while, he

replied,"I'm sorry, I don't think we

have ever met before..."

The laptop hard disk seemed very

depressed, I can sense her current in

tears, "I can't believe you're that

absent minded."
"Oh..." hard disk didn't give an

answer.

I was so sad. She still kept him in her

mind, but he forgot all about it, which

he most unwillingly forgot.I'm not sure

whether it is luck or pain. It was the

destiny made fun of them. I felt very

depressed.

At that time I sensed a strange current

from hard disk. Expression on his face

was complex, confused at first, than

gradually got exited, than grieved, at

last exultant..."IBM, you really come

back..."

Later BIOS told me he wasn't sleeping

actually. From that day hard disk

concealed some documents, he forsore a

possible consequence, so he  helped

store some files

stealthily."Fortunately I'm DUAL BIOS,

although I've not stored much, but

quite enough to recall him days of the

past..." I think BIOS must have

suffered much pain while trying to

store them. When I asked him why he did

so, he said,"Because we are friends."

Yes, we are friends, friends forever...

附:原文

    我是一条内存.
    我在一台台式电脑里工作,但是我记不
得我是从哪里来的,是什么牌子,因为我健
忘。我的上司是cpu大哥,他是我们的老大
。都说他是电脑的脑子,可是我看他的脑子
实在是太小了,比我还要健忘。每天他总是
不停的问我,某某页某某地址存的是什么?
我总是不厌其烦的告诉他,可是不出一秒钟
他又忘记了,又要问一遍,一次我说大哥你
烦不烦,你就不能记住点有用的东西?他说
“内存兄弟,我有苦衷啊,每天都在不停地
做题,头晕眼花的,我也难啊。”
    其实我不愿意跟他计较,因为他脑子小
,思维也很简单。虽然说他是我的上司,可
是每次睡觉醒来,他连要干什么都不记得了
,总是急急忙忙地找BIOS兄弟,“嘿,哥们
,今天干什么来着”。bios总是很不耐烦地
把每天必做的工作说一遍,然后就去睡觉了
。接下来就轮到我和C哥瞎忙了。
    在机箱里的兄弟中,我最喜欢硬盘。他
脑子大,记得东西多,而且记得牢。他说话
 的速度很慢,而且很少说错,这说明他很
有深度,我这么感觉。CPU也这么想,不过
他很笨,每次都忘了硬盘是谁。开机自检的
时候总要问∶“嘿,那家伙是谁?”
    “ST!”我总要重复一遍。
    硬盘很喜欢忧郁,我觉得象他这样忧郁
的人不适合做技术活,迟早会精神分裂的,
但是他不信。
    其实睡着的时候我总是把几乎所有的东
西都忘记掉,但是我从来都不会忘记朋友。
有一块地方叫做CMOS,那是我记忆的最深处
,保存着硬盘、光驱的名字。有些东西应该
很快忘掉,而有些东西应该永远记得。我在
梦中总是这么想着。
    BIOS是一个很奇怪的家伙,他老是睡觉
,但是却总是第一个醒过来。让我们自检,
启动,然后接着睡觉。我知道如果我在CMO
S里头把BIOS Shadow选项去掉,他就睡不成
了,
但是看着他晕晕乎乎的样子,也就不忍心这
么做了。他对人总是爱搭不理,没有什么人
了解他。但是这次硬盘恋爱的事,却使我重
新认识了他。
    那是很久以前的事了,机箱里似乎来过
一块笔记本硬盘,很可爱,说实话我也喜欢
她。不过现在除了记得他可爱,别的都忘记
了。这就是我比硬盘幸运的地方,我把所有
应该忘记的都忘记了,但是他却什么都记得

    自从笔记本硬盘走了之后,硬盘就变得
很不正常。每次他的磁头经过一些地方的时
候,我们都能感觉到电流很不正常。
    “硬盘这是怎么了?”我问CPU。
    “谁是硬盘?”
    我就知道和CPU没有办法交流,倒是bi
os没好气地说∶“那个傻瓜恋爱了”。我不
知道什么是恋爱,因为我记不住东西,似乎
有一些人或者事在我生命中留下过痕迹,但
 是我都轻率地把他们忘记了。
    BIOS对我说∶“对你来说记忆太容易了
,所以你遗忘得更快,生命中能够永刻的记
忆都带着痛楚。”我不懂,但是我知道BIO
S曾经被刷写过,那时他很痛,象要死了一
样。我的记忆是轻浮的,不象他们……我很
羡慕他们,因为他们拥有回忆,而我们有,
从此我也学会了忧郁,因为我在CMOS里面写
下了“忧郁”两个字。
    硬盘一天比一天不对劲,终于有一天,
CPU对问说∶“下条指令是什么来着?” 我
一看,吓了一跳∶“format”
    “是什么?”CPU很兴奋,这个没脑子
的家伙。
     我还是告诉了他。我不知为什么这么
做。
     硬盘犹豫了很久,终于说了一句 Tra
ck 0 bad,Disk unusable。
    电停了,很久很久,我在黑暗中数着时
钟……
    一个月后硬盘回来了,也许最后的挣扎
也没有使他摆残酷的命运,他被低格了。他
什么也不记得了,如同一个婴儿,我们很难
过,但是这未必不是一件好事,他以后不用
痛苦了。
    为了恢复数据,笔记本硬盘回来了。“
Hi,ST”,她说,“你不认识我了?”硬盘
没有说话,似乎低格对他的伤害很大。过了
一会,他说∶“对不起,好象我们没有见过
吧……”。
    笔记本硬盘显得很伤心,我能感觉到她
带泪的电流。“想不到连你也这么健忘”。

    “哦……”。硬盘没有回答。
     我很难过,笔记本硬盘的心里依然记
着他,他却把一切都忘了,而那正是他最不
希望忘却的。究竟是幸运,还是痛苦,我说
不上来,只是觉得造化弄人,有一种淡淡
的悲凉。
    这时从BIOS传来一阵奇怪的电流,我感
觉到硬盘的表情在变化,由漠然到兴奋,由
兴奋到哀伤,由哀伤到狂喜……“IBM,你
回来了……”。
     ……
    后来BIOS对我说,其实他并没有睡觉,
自从硬盘把那些文件藏起来以后,他就到会
有这样的结局,于是偷偷地把其中一些文件
放到了备份里。“幸好我是DUAL BIOS,虽
然藏得不多,还足够让他想起来……”。
我想BIOS保存这些东西的时候一定很疼,当
我问他“为什么这么做”时,BIOS轻描淡写
的说∶“呵呵,我们是朋友嘛”。
    嗯,朋友,永远的朋友……
