August 21, 2009 - The more things change...

All the users were getting so mad
For their network performance was bad
With their workstations' fate
Stuck at Win '98
And a server they used to run CAD.

I put XP back on. We're legit.
A new router we bought to transmit.
But our contact was told
Since the screens all look old
Nothing's changed since the old guru quit.

August 20, 2009 - Second opinion

Could her MacBook be worth any less?
Its performance was causing her stress.
She was ranting, “You’ll see!”
But the techs all agree.
Must be hell to go through PMS.

That day wound up being a "Post Like F L U F" Day. So I made my entry - in his style, of course:

O 2 B F L U F

Submitted by O 2 B F L U F on August 20, 2009 - 8:21 A.M.

I would put that sick warpig through hell.
“That old MacBook! It really does smell!
Don’t be using that junk!
It’s a piece of crap, punk!
Here’s a Microsoft box made by Dell.”

August 19, 2009 - The truth is up there

I believed there’s no way I could trust her.
“There’s no liquids here!” I heard her bluster.
With the phone oozing slime,
It would seem at times I’m
Not a techie, but just a Ghostbuster.

August 18, 2009 - We could tell you, but then we'd have to kill your Internet access

When I accessed the tech support bank,
The web filter would leave the screen blank.
“What’s the reason?” I cried.
It says, “Access Denied.”
Please don’t filter Computerworld’s Tank!

August 17, 2009 - Simpler: not always better

After making a half hour trip
To see what made the e-mail slip,
What, to my great surprise,
Both the power supplies
Were both plugged in the same power strip.

Why she did it is anyone’s guess.
Was she cracking up under the stress?
Here’s a possible tip:
Just get rid of the strip
And invest in a good UPS.
