December 14, 2012 - O2BIrish Christmas Special #5: JIM's Dickens of a Christmas

December 13, 2012 - But it's a great connection!

There's a user who raised quite a clamor.
"I can't work from home!" I heard him stammer.
There's a hurricane there.
But I wasn't aware
They had internet in Alabama.

December 12, 2012 - In mythical man-millennia?

'Twas a question that made my head throb.
Lose all data for paying our mob?
Just rekey it? I swear
That I don't think I'd care
Because I would be out of a job.

December 11, 2012 - Anything ELSE?

When I’m coding, one thing I abhor
Is when I’m asked to do a small chore.
“You need licenses fixed?
‘Mobile Unit’ gets nixed?”
I obliged and I said nothing more.

Then that manager showed up again.
“Semi-Permanent works. It’s more plain.”
With that term, I am down.“
Semi-Permanent” sounds
Like that programming groove in my brain.

December 10, 2012 - Or do you think maybe he was being polite?

Said the bean counter, “How can I get
Some blank paper?” I told him, “No sweat.”
With three form feeds I pleased
The bean counter with ease.
For high-tech, that’s the lowest tech yet.
