October 5, 2012 - They're software guys, so they like a hardware fix

Upstairs trash is beginning to burst! I’m
Sure it’s not the programmers’ worst crime.
As days passed, you expressed
Take it out’s your request?
Then why’d you not say that the first time?

We all know that you gave it a mention,
That to you it’s a bone of contention.
As a programmer, we
Like to fix what we see
So it won’t need somebody’s attention.

October 4, 2012 - Either that or it's a memory leak

It's a call I will never forget
There's a oil leak! That green-screen's all wet!
When a techie would need
The box processor speed,
That's the MPG's users would get.

October 3, 2012 - Close enough for government work

There's an agency covered by HIPAA
Who are now a big net filter skippa.
They don't know what a switch is.
That's where the big hitch is.
With networks, they have to be hippa'.

October 2, 2012 - Please tell us networking is NOT her field

"I need VPN! That's my desire!
At the office, there's docs I require."
I said, "You'll be appalled:
With no router installed
What you'll need is a really long wire."

October 1, 2012 - Parts is parts, but GHz isn't GHz

It seems time after time it’s the same:
“It’s your processor’s speed!” they’ll exclaim.
I told their engineers
“It’s been running four years.
Could it be that your software’s to blame?”
