December 18, 2009 - Another satisfied customer

We’re the target of all the attacks.
For the dealer’s compliance is lax
For the new system spec,
So I say, what the heck,
Send the database to him by fax.

December 17, 2009 - How to save money, hospital edition

In a building that’s purpose is healing
There’s some cable to run through the ceiling
That's above ICU.
But the safety review
Sent the planners who wanted this reeling.

What’s the cause of the planners’ frustration?
They won’t file a permit application.
I then said, “Take a hike,
For I sure do not like
To be on Double Secret Probation.”

December 16, 2009 - The seven-year itch

There’s a rule and we all have to heed it.
Data’s archived. Who knows when we’ll need it.
When the job is all done
I'll have copied each one.
We just will not be able to read it.

December 15, 2009 - You first

When they asked the fish what was the matter,
“There’s a problem that’s hot on my platter.
Can a new project code
One day soon get bestowed
By Computerworld’s Shark Tank Mad Hatter?”

December 14, 2009 - A little too future-ready

The new lab’s not to our satisfaction.
Its disk wiping is quite the distraction.
Every coed and boy’ll
Find out that a coil
Creates a magnetic attraction.

For that physics class said it is real.
A magnetic field’s hard to conceal.
The school bought too much cable
Now disks are unstable.
But really, they got quite a deal.
