February 12, 2010 - The joy of do-it-yourself IT

There’s no email? That’s the sub’s plight
When the DNS record’s not right.
Now their web site's off line.
Hey! Could this be a sign?
Was this Tank ‘bout Computerworld’s site?

February 11, 2010 - Why isn't everyone looking happy to hear that?

“The app’s broke! We're in such disarray!”
“Make it trusted!” “It won’t work that way!”
There’s a meeting to see
What to do for "Plan B,"
But the fix wound up being "Plan A."

February 10, 2010 - OK, that one WAS an emergency

On this job, we all worked with great stealth.
“Yeah, we’re bringing your PC to health!”
It took three of our staff
To reverse out the gaffe
The pres made, listing everyone’s wealth.

February 9, 2010 - So much for that executive-suite mystique

In the office of corp’rate elite
I attempted repairs so discreet.
As I worked with aplomb,
She then shrieked to her mom,
“Holy Cow! I’ve got talented feet!”

February 8, 2010 - Oops!

My whole business is earning its keep
From construction guys leaving a heap.
As they cleaned up their trash
They could cause quite a crash
In the space of a single fell sweep.
