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 - There’s support, and then there’s 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 don’t own it

Throwback Thursday Limerick (06/10/09)

When the fish calls the vendor, he learns
That the vendor, their warranty spurns.
Now his company’s 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 vendors’ reps kept on dueling,
The department awaited a ruling.
No, some new guy they’ll try ‘
Cause he’s such a nice guy.
He’s some relative! Who are they fooling?


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

The school’s library admin is griping.
She gets garbage when she’s 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 won’t 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.
