June 3, 2019 - Next time, draw him a map

I can't get any help here? I'm pist!
Got the run-around! Boy, I felt dissed!
Bet that super felt dumb
When I said where I'm from.
There's a building to add to his list.

June 4, 2019 - Thereís support, and then thereís SUPPORT

A collegial bunch? But, of course!
But one customer caused us remorse,
Since one day we got burned,
And so quickly had learned
That we must start protecting our source.

June 5, 2019 - Wayback Wednesday: Educators need some education

Wayback Wednesday Limerick (6/8/09)

The assistant had found it so stressing
Doing handheld device repair guessing.
What would bother me more?
How his boss is unsure.
"Should the teachers teach network addressing?"

June 6, 2019 - Throwback Thursday: You donít own it

Throwback Thursday Limerick (06/10/09)

When the fish calls the vendor, he learns
That the vendor, their warranty spurns.
Now his companyís screwed.
Will the vendor review
All their systems that track their returns?

June 10, 2019 - Out of print

"All my printouts are hosed! Can't you see?!?"
Now the vendor can fix it, not me.
All his docs will look fine.
And he'll no longer whine,
If he only would RTFD.

June 11, 2019 - Listen to Betty

There's good management, but there's a few
Kept in management suites out of view.
They don't know what they're doing.
That keeps them from screwing
Up things for the workers that do.

In this case, this scenario plays.
There's one thing that this set up did raise.
While the pawns did the work,
It's a management perk -
That it's them that will get all the praise.

(This does not apply to my current employer...)

June 12, 2019 - A rose by any other acronym...

There's a buzz at this one ISV.
Will the prez change the name back? "Not me!"
New one's for IPO,
But it never did go.
Now the ISV's gone. RIP...

June 13, 2019 - Throwback Thursday: And what could be more important than that?

Throwback Thursday Limerick (6/16/09)

While the two vendorsí reps kept on dueling,
The department awaited a ruling.
No, some new guy theyíll try Ď
Cause heís such a nice guy.
Heís some relative! Who are they fooling?

June 14, 2019 - Flashback Friday: User see, user do

The schoolís library admin is griping.
She gets garbage when sheís busy typing.
She had cleaned all her keys
And replaced them with ease
After doing a final key wiping.

But the cleaning she gave was discreet.
And that QWERTY she tried to defeat.
No, a Dvorak wonít do.
What she needs is a new
PC keyboard from Sesame Street.

June 17, 2019 - Did you try changing the chanel?

There's two monitors needing a fix.
They were fixed with a couple of clicks.
Laptop screen's off! A crime!
Now that veep can't waste time
Watching JIM's motivational flicks.

June 18, 2019 - Time-Machine Tuesday: Get a room!


When the patches are issued, we meet,
And our room is reserved. Itís so sweet!
Itís all done through Exchange!
But this month, itís so strange.
Tíwas signed out! We were kicked to the street.

But we did get the meeting room back
Without any Exchange system hack.
Would you find it ironic
And somewhat demonic
If sign outs were done on a Mac?

June 19, 2019 - A lovely spring day

Oh, the outdoors! It can't be denied
In the spring, we enjoy it outside.
There is nary a care
As we breathe the fresh air
With the scent of poor Charlie that fried.

June 25, 2019 - Ready, set, go

Kick the switch on the tape drive machine?
Let's expose them by using our bean.
We outsmarted the dopes
With a pipe and some soap
Since the culprits refused to come clean.

June 26, 2019 - Wayback Wednesday: Ditch the glitch


When weíre building the phonebook on-line,
There were nights when the jobs would run fine.
But at times, we were stumped.
For the time tenth and umpth
Folks were missing, and people would whine.

So in searching, the problem to catch,
We found timing that sometimes wonít match.
For the two jobs would start
Fifteen minutes apart.
Sometimes life in ITís sure a batch.

June 27, 2019 - Throwback Thursday: Some people aren't satisfied ith eight nines


When submitting the COOís pension,
Thereís an issue that got our attention.
It takes 1.8 mil
For his check to fulfill.
Thatís a sum beyond our comprehension.

But there something thatís far greater yet.
And itís something youíve heard of, I bet.
As the news reports told
Itís some two hundredfold.
Itís how far Michael Jacksonís in debt.
