May 2 - 6, 2011

May 6, 2011 - This is just a little prison IT humor -- right?

At the prison, they started to rave. "You’re
Our networking guru and savior!
What’s your number?" I say
I don’t give it away.
I can leave with enough good behavior.

May 5, 2011 - Yes, really!

Stolen data’s security’s fear.
“Lock your PCs!” the warning I hear.
“It can lock itself, Mista,
With smart cards and Vista.”
To listen, it took them a year.

May 4, 2011 - Just our way of saying thanks

There’s no power! The worst of my fears!
But I called when our staff disappears.
Though I sweep up, I mused
That the vacuum I've used
Was between all those sysadmins’ ears.

May 3, 2011 - Not exactly a teaching moment

Every PC that’s being used dies,
So the teacher busts in and she cries,
“All our labs! They are dead!”
I then thought in my head,
“You’d know why if you opened your eyes!”

May 2, 2011 - Whatever works

That encryption, it works really rotten
With those drives, inexpensively gotten.
A new bug fix was tried.
All those PC’s just died
Like that nut-job Osama bin Laden.
