October 18, 2013 - First rule of cost cutting: If it ain't broke...

The new CIO's heard to exclaim,
"A new help desk replacement's my aim."
We were given a bill
For some 1.5 mill.
A non-profit? We're earning that name!

That new system? Much to our chagrin
Has got problems. Will we ever win?
So that call to support?
They won't fix it, I snort,
If their help desk, they can not log in.

October 17, 2013 - Still better than waiting for Facilities to fix it

That room's Smart Board? Its problems I'd rid.
Their projector? Observe it, I did.
'Round its base was a chain.
"It won't shake." they'd explain.
Guess that's better than wrapped 'round a kid.

October 16, 2013 - The meeting probably wasn't wild about him either

That new programmer really was keen.
All his code showed he's right on the bean.
But we found his one flaw
When he hit his last straw:
He's repulsed by the odor of "clean."

October 15, 2013 - Well, 'micro' means small, right?

With compilers, that day I was stuck.
When I called, it seems I'm out of luck.
Need assistance with Cobol?
My problems could snowball
If he should get hit by a truck.

October 14, 2013 - This is why we never want users going retro on us

There's a call for assistance required.
"My computer's gone nuts! You're desired!"
The spare mouse that he packed
Caused his laptop to act
Like his mouse wasn't all that was wired.
