    Not a bad collection! I was hoping to see something set to "The Frist Noel".

    The first ticket That the helpdesk did get Was for certain network drives The users did fret As the tickets mounted up And the panic did spread Turned out backups were missing And all data was dead No L, No L, No L, No L SAN disk drive L was completely bork-ed

    (I do not know who originally wrote this. I arranged it and sang it with a chorus of employees at Compuserve at Xmas of, I think, 1994.)

    For the twelfth bug of Christmas, my manager said to me Tell them it's a feature Say it's not supported Change the documentation Blame it on the hardware Find a way around it Say they need an upgrade Reinstall the software Ask for a dump Run with the debugger Try to reproduce it Ask them how they did it and See if they can do it again.

    So little time on testing spent

    And still we see that fault

    Above that blinking bright red link

    That error text default

    Yet in the evening yesterday

    I worked till half past ten

    I thought I'd fixed that bloody bug

    And now it's back again.
