Beyond that I see is a huge image in a relatively common font, I only know about as much German as I do Japanese- that of identifying it and picking out a keyword or two, but not being anywhere near conversational.

TRIVIA: The picture is a blackletter-Gothic sign in mangled mock German that once graced about half the computer rooms in the English-speaking world.

Those who have a fair idea on how germans speak would see read it like this.


ATTENTION
ALL TOURISTS AND NONTECHNICAL ONLOOKERS!
THESE COMPUTER MACHINES ARE NOT FOR YOUR FINGER POKING AND MITT-GRABBING, IT IS OTHERWISE EASY TO SNAP THE SPIRINGWORK, BLOW FUSES AND POP CORKS WITH SPITTING SPARKS.
IT IS NOT FOR WORKING BY DUMB-HEADS. THE RUBBERNECKING SIGHTSEERS MUST KEEP THEIR COTTON PICKING HANDS IN POCKETS.
SO RELAX AND WATCH THE BLINKING LIGHTS.
