An IT Haiku For You

The last time we posted an IT Haiku, folks were just starting to string up the holiday lights around the servers. Hey, don't blame us -- some of guys just don't know how to count syllables.

Fortunately, John Gregor remembered the 5-7-5 rule of Haikus and came through for us. John's poem is no doubt an homage to that often-told Tech Support 'horror' story:

Coffeecup holder

Can also play DVD
But not at same time.

Very true John. But did you also know some of those computer coffee cup holders can also double as a mini-basketball hoop? Just wad up a piece of paper and try to score.

Not that we've ever done anything like that. It's all business here my friend.
