August 24, 2012 - For the good of the outfit

Need a PC for testing? Use mine!
But you may have to wait in that line.
Is my new PC new?
Nah, it’s already used
As a testbed PC,
a software test box,
a MySQL server,
a disk wiper,
a GPS,
a camera,
a gaming box,
a DVD player,
a coffee maker…

August 23, 2012 - That would explain it

“Why's my password not working?” he said,
“Like the rock, seems my Outlook is dead.”
“There's no problem at all:
Hook your box to the wall.
Use the net in our good hands instead.“

August 22, 2012 - But thanks for going to all that trouble

That one maintenance guy threw a fit
When I asked, “Why’d the sewer pump quit?
The pump’s status you’ll get
When you check on the net.
That will tell when the pump’s full of wash cloth.”

August 21, 2012 - Let's think this through one more time

Dual power supplies would be stunning.
But the option the vendor is shunning.
Now, a swap you can not
Ever do while it’s hot:
If it fails, then that box won’t be running.

August 20, 2012 - So THAT'S why we didn't do that before!

Since I thought that the disk names should show,
On the top disk a label should go.
One got torn up to shreds
And it crashed all our heads,
And the cost was a whole lot of “D’oh!”
