May 7, 2010 - Smart, but not THAT smart

Being on-call’s a pain in the seat.
Here’s a plan that just can not be beat:
Get a smartphone just so
There’s one number to know.
We can show folks that it’s really neat!

But while making this smartphone decision,
There’s a boss who would laugh with derision.
“It’s too hard fix code
On that screen!” the boss crowed.
Well, today one might say he’s got vision!

May 6, 2010 - Hey, she got it the second time!

There’s an order. We all have to heed it:

May 4, 2010 - Just our way of saying thanks

“All our systems are now going under!
But don’t touch them!” I heard my boss thunder.
“We must hear from support!”
Then I made a retort,
“Doing nothing’s a serious blunder!”

And we wrote down each tiny detail.
Said my boss, "It’s a slight!"
Though we did what was right.
Can’t I tell him to just go to hail?

May 3, 2010 - Ninety days same as cache?

“What is making my trash disappear?”
“You’ve deleted it. That’s crystal clear.”
I bet he’d blow a gasket
If his own waste basket
Was emptied just four times a year.
