February 7 - 11, 2011

February 11, 2011 - Aha!

Their net’s funky. I’ll go there and see.
I’ve no access? How wrong can that be?
The wrong bank? That’s a laugh!
I must inform our staff
That they don’t let some schmuck in like me.

February 10, 2011 - I can't quit you, baby

One division will only use Cobol,
Though we want to make access more globol.
Other groups have all changed,
But yet something seems strange:
Now that problem’s beginning to snobol.

There were some that thought the rhyme was a stretch - particularly the last line. I thought the second line was more of a stretch. I felt really good about the snobol reference, since it was a computer language from the 1960's.

February 9, 2011 - Not her type

To the user, I cried out, “Whoa, Mama!
There’s a fix to this keyboarding drama.
It’s your boss who’s to blame.
Let’s find one with the name
Spelled ‘Z-X-C-V-B-N-M-,’”

February 8, 2011 - Message received

“Those awards and citations I see?
Get them out of there ASAP!
They’ll make managers sweat.
You’ll be seen as a threat.”
Like some day they’ll be working for me!

February 7, 2011 - Just like you told me to

Today’s user was feeling bereft.
All his patience had just up and left.
Though he tried and he tried,
He'd get “Access Denied”
With that part of the keyboard that's “F-ed.”
