April 22, 2011 - Apparently the phone knows how to campaign, too

There’s a picture. I want to dispatch it.
Her name’s spelling? My phone wants to match it.
“Tantalizing" may be
What my Smartphone can see -
She’s a lot cuter than that Nurse Ratched!

April 21, 2011 - Un petit d'un petit s'etonne aux Halles...

I said, "Look at this code! Oh my gawd!
All the names used in here are quite odd!
In the works, there's a wrench!
They're all written in French.
Are we stuck needing help from Jean Claude?

April 20, 2011 - Programmer for hire, also knows hardware

There’s a Monster glitch on a device.
Tech support has been called on it twice.
When I saw it, I flipped!
There’s a breaker that’s tripped!
Did the desktop tech fix it? No Dice!

April 19, 2011 - No, the root cause was a jerk

All our backups were bad. They won’t go.
What that admin did’s un-apropos.
‘Twas swept under the table,
Him pulling that cable.
And that’s why he makes all the “D’oh!”

April 18, 2011 - See, she KNEW there'd be a problem

Updates caused this one user to twitch,
So I gave her my tech support pitch.
Now the user’s appalled
That the patches installed
Pushed the monitor’s power off switch!
