June 27, 2014 - It's easier when the errors arrive on schedule

There were errors galore from the SCSI.
What's the cause? Engineers were all fuzzy.
It was caused by a train!
Soon a raise he would gain!
Today's fish wasn't stupid, now was he?

June 26, 2014 - Domino theory

Now my testing new software's the norm.
'Bout the new one, I wrote on my form,
"In this software review
I'm required to do,
Are there bugs? This one had a whole swarm!

"As I shut the thing off, I thought 'Shoot!
This thing's killing off jobs like it's root!'
All our jobs have gone 'Splat!'
I've no access like that!
This behavior just does not compute!"

Then next day, when my login I tried
The computer said "Access DENIED!"
To the help desk I'd go -
"I'm not root, you should know!
You must give back my access!" I cried.

So my access I got there and then
As I whispered a quiet "Amen!"
Right now all is okay,
But I'm dreading that day
When I do it all over again!

June 25, 2014 - Details, details

In that check run, now what did I see?
There's a minus sign? How can that be?
When a credit is due
There's a bug. That is true.
Who's the hero? They've credited me!

June 24, 2014 - Which part of @#$%! didn't you understand?

You may think that I'm some kind of idjit.
"What's her code?" caused the user to fidget.
The code's length should be ten.
Now I'm wondering when
The percent sign's considered a digit...

June 23, 2014 - OK, that part HASN'T changed

Says the gang in the Tank of the Shark,
On-call calls ain't no walk in the park!
There's no modem or phone?
We feel so all alone,
When like users, we're left in the dark.
