Ⅱ.单词简析

1) Fritz: slang word for something that is broken or not working properly

Fritz: 描述某物坏掉了或出现故障时的不正式说法

ex:My alarm clock is on the fritz and that is why I am late to work again.

我的闹钟坏了,所以我上班又迟到了。

2) Help Desk: a department in a company that can help you with any computer or printing problems

公司里专门帮助解决电脑或打印问题的部门

ex:The help desk staff in our company are always stressed out because the computers are old.

我们公司的电脑维修人员工作压力一直很大,因为电脑太旧了。

3) Bug: a problem with a computer or computer software

电脑或电脑软件出现的问题

ex:After we tested the new software, we found so many bugs that had to be fixed.

测试完新软件后,我们发现有太多问题需要解决。

4) GIGO: Garbage In, Garbage Out. This is an old saying in computer programming. Computers can only do what you tell them and if you tell them the wrong thing, they will do the wrong thing.

无用输入,无用输出:电脑编程中的习惯说法。电脑只会按你的指示操作,如果你的指示是错的,它们就会按错误指示去做。

ex:The help desk told me that my computer was working fine and the problem was caused by GIGO!

电脑维修人员说我的电脑运作正常,问题是由GIGO引起的。

5) Policies: rules that people should follow

病毒,能毁掉或删除你的电脑文档的破坏性软件

My computer got a virus from the Internet because I did not use the virus scanner carefully.

我的电脑从网上染上了病毒,因为我没好好用查毒软件。

Ⅲ.课文篇

The personal computer is one of the greatest tools ever invented by man and almost everyone in a company these days will need to be able to use one to do their job properly. Because computers are so important and expensive, most companies have policies about their use.

个人电脑是人类发明的最伟大的工具之一。现在几乎公司的每个员工都需要能用电脑正确工作。由于电脑很重要且贵重,大多数公司对于电脑的使用都做了规定。

Most companies are very careful about viruses these days. If you use floppy discs from others, you should always use a virus scanner before you put the disc in your computer.

现在多数公司对病毒都很小心。如果你用的是别人的软盘,将软盘插入电脑前应该用查毒软件检查一下。

If the company gives you a password for your computer, you should not write it down on a piece of paper. Try to remember it instead.

如果公司给你电脑密码,不要把它写在纸上,试着将密码记住。

If you can choose you own password, don't choose something that others could guess easily such as your name or birth date. Try to remember to change your password every month.

如可以自己选择密码,不要设置别人容易猜到的密码,例如你的名字或生日。试着记得每月更换一次密码。

Although MP3's and on-line chat are lots of fun, most companies don't like you use them at work during work time. Not only are you not working efficiently if you are chatting on-line but MP3s can make the Internet really slow for everyone else.

虽然MP3和网上聊天乐趣无穷,可大多数公司不喜欢你在工作时间使用它们。网上聊天不仅会使你的工作效率降低,而且MP3还会使其他人的上网速度变得很慢。
