Reminds me of a Q&A column from my university's CS student newsletter in
the 80's. It went something like this:

   Q. I finally managed to save enough money to buy a home computer. I
      read the user manual and wrote my first BASIC program as follows:

         20 GOTO 20

      I started the program with the RUN command, and it has been
      running since. What do I do now?

      I am new to computers, so no tech jargon, please.

   A. You can't expect shorter latencies in a computer in this price
      range. What we suggest, at a bare minimum, is a RAM upgrade to at
      least 64 kilobytes. The CPU might need to be replaced with the
      recently released 8 MHz model as well. [...]
