July 27, 2012 - One at a time -- remember?

One by one all those jobs should be startin’.
That was changed, and the techies are smartin’.
Things would move along fine
If they waited in line
Like they taught us in our kindergarten.

July 26, 2012 - Around the world in 80 milliseconds?

We've a server that's near Ethiopia?
That's a bad case of mental myopia!
We should play a cool game!
Give new servers a name
Like "Atlantis", or maybe "Utopia."

There's some quirk that's an internet slayer.

Heard of iPods and Media Player?

July 24, 2012 - Honest, you really didn't want to see any more

We need face time's the corporate song.

In the conference, I cried,
"What he's trying to hide

What he's doing instead:
He's there playing with kitties and bunnies.

July 23, 2012 - Mmmmm ... fried PC!

The computer in shipping is stuck.
It won’t work. They are sure out of luck!
Why’d its cookies get tossed?
It got sugared and sauced!
When I saw that, I shouted, "Oh, DUCK!”
