My favourite:

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."
-- Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

What about this?

"Mike Saunders is smaller than I had imagined." --Nobber

I didn't give it much thought when I said it, but given the cheerful mockfest it led to, it was obviously pithier than I could have known at the time.

Nobber, next time you visit the site, don't be surprised if you see a large, er, 'quote' saying "YOU ARE BANNED". Oh, and the quote may have other side-effects too, such as making the rest of the site inaccessible. And your computer exploding.
