September 2016

September 2, 2016 - Why we love engineers

In the light of his box this guy's basking.
Are there problems here now, I am asking
Of this box, he's reliant
As server and client.
A server shan't do multi-tasking.

September 5, 2016 - Sounds like management material to us...

What he said, it sure wasn't malarkey,
Though some thought he was being too snarky.
From what's happened to me,
I will have to agree
With the title above by ol' Sharky!

September 8, 2016 - Or maybe the boss was a Priority 1 user

Were the rules for our systems relaxed?
Did our 10 percent prizes get axed?
It's a government shop.
Why'd your payments get stopped?
I will tell you: You merely got taxed.

September 9, 2016 - So who do we crucify?

Could the PC's be acting more queerer?
After checking, the cause became clearer.
While at first, they were mad,
But the mess ain't so bad.
When the culprit they saw in their mirror.

September 13, 2016 - Actually, we pay what we pay and we HOPE you'll take it

To my agency, I'm sure a hero.
Billed that company mucho dinero.
Twice the company pays
For my five percent raise?
Hey, what's fifty percent of a zero?!?

September 19, 2016 - Any color you like, as long as it's black

At the mouth he was starting to froth.
"See these printouts? The color scheme's off!
You must redo the site,
Since those colors aren't right."
Guess I'll make up a style sheet "Goth."

September 20, 2016 - It's not like anybody was there using it, right?

Why's the outage? Our group would determine
'Twas a girl who's like General Sherman.
What's the fix? We'd require
A big cage of barbed wire
And a sign that we'd write in faux German.

September 22, 2016 - Work for us? Fine. Get hired? Not so fast...

The bank buyout was done in a blur.
There's some testing that soon would occur.
It's on banking? How crass!
There's no way she would pass.
So the bank took no interest in her.

September 26, 2016 - Why we love power users (low-wattage division)

Just as soon as her call had begun
'Twas ten minutes before she was done.
She was in quite a bind,
So her data I'd find.
Like my service, it starts with "A1"

September 27, 2016 - 'And why do they call it dialing, anyway?'

Said the post-doc with much acrimony,
"This phone sucks, that is sure no baloney!"
No when all's said and done,
She's not dialing a one.
Now I know her degree isn't phoney.
