March 2019

March 1, 2019 - Sometimes percussive maintenance doesn’t work

There's one screen that just sits there and hums.
With a temper more violent than some,
This one boss made it sick
With a violently placed kick.
Bet that terminal's not all that's dumb.

How'd this happen? The boss won't admit it.
When they'd ask, he did nothing but hid it.
When he's told about how,
"Can't imagine it now."
He won't have to, because the guy did it!


March 4, 2019 - Easier than an exorcism

When I owned that PC repair shop,
There's one case where the problem won't stop.
Though I'd take it apart
The thing just wouldn't start.
It was fixed by an anger fueled drop.


March 5, 2019 - Time-Machine Tuesday: That would explain it

TIME-MACHINE TUESDAY LIMERICK (3/10/09)

When the programmer phoned his replies in
To a problem we had, t’was surprisin’
That his fix didn’t take.
To avoid this mistake
We should call up that guy from Verizon.


March 6, 2019 - Just not as dangerous as stationery?

The inspection they did was so brisk!
They would spot every injuring risk.
Envelopes could soon fall,
They could hurt one and all
Not unlike this one anger-thrown disk.


March 7, 2019 - Throwback Thursday: Straight to the point

THROWBACK THURSDAY LIMERICK (3/12/09)

There’s a bean-counting corp’rate reviewer
Who thinks I should do edits by viewer.
You know, I’ve had enough!
I think I should get F L U F
To go talk to the guy with a skewer!


March 8, 2019 - What was plan C?

The disk clicking's sure bothering him.
A and B won't work - tried on a whim.
I have got quite the trick
That will make that disk sick -
Fill it up with the wisdom of JIM.


March 11, 2019 - Memory-lane Monday: Mobile, redefined

MEMORY-LANE MONDAY LIMERICK (3/13/09)

Being mobile’s so lacking in glamour,
I could go at the cubes with a hammer.
There’d be less to lament
If the adjective meant
That I worked in southwest Alabammer.


March 12, 2019 - Managing up

So the boss wants to stop all inspection?
There's no reason for error detection?
Things are running so tight!
Everything works just right!
Seems he just cannot deal with rejection...


March 13, 2019 - How do you say 'zapped' in French?

Here's a cable to put in as mapped.
It's in French? Our technicians felt trapped.
While I do not speak French,
When that cable I'd clench,
I sure did as I quickly got zapped.


March 14, 2019 - Echo chamber

Throwback Thursday Limerick (3/16/09)

'Round the server room work I had hovered,
Where incompetence soon was discovered.
All because of some dope,
Who was given a rope,
Who then told his boss, "I've got it covered."


March 15, 2019 - Echo chamber

There's one day that I really got bored.
So our terminal, I had explored.
"'Local echo' turned off?"
Let me fix it." I'd scoff.
NNooww iitt''ss bbrrookkeenn?? OOff tthhaatt,, II wwaass fflloooorreedd!!


March 18, 2019 - W-I-D-E area network

There's a print out I'd like to have soon.
It's in Saudi? I'm starting to swoon!
It is still way must faster
Than printing at NASA -
Their jobs could wind up on the moon.


March 19, 2019 - Heavenly tech support

See that daycare's Wifi? What a shock!
Though my idea surely would rock,
Would they pick up the hint
If their printer would print
The whole book that's by Benjamin Spock?


March 20, 2019 - A flicker of excitement

How'd they handle that flicker? Pathetic!
How I fixed it made them copacetic.
Replace hardware? You jerks!
This is why nothing works:
It's the cause was electromagnetic.
