February 4, 2011 - A little knowledge

When the user learned how to encrypt,
All her access to info was strypt.
When I unchecked that box
It undid all the locks.
Man, that brother of hers should be whypt!

February 3, 2011 - Because if there's ANY way to do it wrong...

Today's user is one of those souls
Who attains quite unreachable goals.
From this tale, it appears
She could have a career
Shoving square pegs inside of round holes.

February 2, 2011 - And isn't that what management's really all about?

Writing time sheets can get rather wordy,
But we must keep the bottom line sturdy.
There's no pay for OT!
We’re all working for free
For all work that's done after 4:30!

February 1, 2011 - No, it's a completely different me

While this poem I am trying to scribble,
Here’s a thought that I sure can not quibble.
When you’re staffing the phones,
One can not work alone,
That’s unless you have hired on Sybil.

January 31, 2011 - Tale from the crypt

“Double-ROT-13 encryption”
Caused the Aussies to throw a conniption.
They can’t send a reply
And they want to know why
They’re unable to find its description.

But an email about this discussion
Said it’s cause for some big repercussion.
Well, I guess it’s rumor
That Aussies like humor.
To me, they all seem like they’re Russian.

After it was pointed out that the people objecting to the joke were Americans and not Australian, I posted:

Said the fish in the story, “Hey O,
You’ve messed up today’s rhyme. I should know.
It was not Aussie ranks
That were tough, but the Yanks.”
As a wise man named Homer said, “D’OH!”
