A Tech Christmas Poem

Tomorrow when my users check their e-mails, they'll see this poem.

A Poem for Christmas by Trina, aged 34

'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the school
Several computers were on
And that wasn't cool.

The computer techs were nestled
All snug in their beds
While visions of Open Source Software
Danced in their heads.

When out in the night sky
There arose such a blast
'Twas thunder & lightning
Neither of which were forecast

The computers went down
The servers shut too
And several network hubs
All went "boo hoo!"

Some computers when down
Will never wake up
And this costs us moolah
Which we never have enough*

So the moral of this poem
If it isn't obvious to you
Turn off your computers
Oh, and Merry Christmas, too!

*Yeah yeah, not the world's greatest rhyme. So sue me!
