October 30, 2009 - This is why we document

For our systems, we need some reporting.
“On our server? It’s trouble we’re courting!”
The boss said with much fervor,
“Install on the server.”
“I’ll be taking notes,” he said snorting.

Two years later the users all called
When a server update was installed.
“The reports are all gone!
What the heck’s going on?
Can you get them all back?” they all bawled.

I emailed that boss, “Now I see ya
Left reporting unfixed. That’s quite clee-ya”
“On the server, it’s wrong
Like I said all along.”
What a totally novel idea!

October 29, 2009 - 23 hours, 59 minutes and counting

The remote office needs to move files.
When our tech came back, he was all smiles,
Because one extra filter
Threw things out of kilter
And built up his Delta Skymiles.

October 28, 2009 - Probably just a screw loose

While performing a cubicle shuffle,
The boss caused many feathers to ruffle.
When he’s playing with plugs
He'll create way more bugs
Than a techie who knows all his stuff’ll.

October 27, 2009 - Your next stop ... the Password Zone

Password update requests come a-floodin’,
So I thought of this all-of-a-sudden:
Would I be better heard
When I gave them their word
If I spoke to them like Allen Ludden?

October 26, 2009 - Because with users, pretty much nothing is impossible

There’s no power here. I won’t deny it.
You can't turn the box on. You can try it!
Seems the desk’s power strip’s
On/off switch got a trip
From a mouse that’s in need of a diet.
