  1. Reminded me of this:

    If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
    And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
    And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
    Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!

    If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash
    And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
    And your data is corrupted ’cause the index doesn’t hash
    Then your situation’s hopeless, and your system’s gonna crash!

  2. @Mark – I remember that poem! Thanks for the nostalgia :)
