January 20, 2012 - ASAP, redefined

Email’s down, and the firm owner’s daughter
Is the person that I’d like to slaughter.
If she had half a brain
She’d renew their domain
Just by paying that bill like she oughter.

January 19, 2012 - Restoring? Not so fast.

At the firm where the backups are massed
And the data we’re saving is vast,
Nightly backing up deeds
Are accomplished with speed,
But recovery’s only half-fast.

I wasn't really happy with that one since it used basically the same punch line as Sharky (although with an added twist), so I also added this one:

There's a backup of data you seek?
What's involved? Let me go take a peek.
If you knew that you might
Need the run from last night,
Then we should have been asked this last week!

January 18, 2012 - Why our users love IT

“Connectivity sucks!” she protested.
“Try your cube!” was what someone suggested.
What’s the cause of one glitch?
It’s a misaddressed switch.
Seems the tester’s the one being tested.

January 17, 2012 - Unclear on the concept

There's a note from a user that thinks
That our spam filter system sure stinks.
That's the quarantined folder!
At least she's not bolder
And clicking on all of the links!

January 16, 2012 - Well, SOMEBODY was making sure everyone knew

In that office, we both got berated
When the status she sent was outdated.
We were taken to task,
So my boss and I asked
“Is the some way she could be sedated?”
