September 16, 2011 - Why we love being on-call

In our chain, Iím support level three.
Level twoís tech and I both agree:
Canít log in for a year?
Now itís urgent? I fear
That does not make it urgent to me.

September 15, 2011 - And 25 years later, not on CDs or DVDs either

Drive replacement is something I hate!
They used Wite-out on labels? How great!
With new labels, no dough
From our compíny will go
Into Mike Nesmithís motherís estate.

September 14, 2011 - And much better than having a paralegal flip a switch

We used ISDN. ĎTwas a breeze.
Iíve installed it with greatest of ease.
At the new place, theyíre stunned.
We are now on T1
Since their printer eats over ten Gís.

September 13, 2011 - Sometimes it just takes younger eyes

'Twas a really tull order, a trick
When the guy couldnít make my fix stick
A mere fifteen-year-old
Understood what I told,
Since her fatherís as thick as a brick

September 12, 2011 - Not really a retirement gift, but it felt that way

"Fiber optic we need to succeed!"
And the bigger boss said he agreed!
Heís an optic subscriber!
The fish gets his fiber.
Thatís what all retirees need!
