    The American Civil Liberties Union announced today that it was bringing a lawsuit against Santa Claus for violations of the civil rights of children. An ACLU spokesman, Mr. E. Scrooge stated that, "Mr. Claus has been violating children's right to privacy and has been putting that information in a vast database. The information is then used by the law enforcement arm of Mr. Claus' organization to determine which children are considered naughty or nice. It is obvious Mr. Claus has violated the children's rights, as we have alleged in our suit, because of the memos and other company information we have obtained. In addition, we believe Mr. Claus has been engaging in mind control experiments designed to prevent the free expression of beliefs."
    Among the documents presented to the courts today was a memo in which reads, in part:
    You better watch out.
    You better not cry.
    You better not pout.
    I'm telling you why.
    Santa Claus is coming to town.
    He sees more...

    Algorithm: A catchy 1930 song by George and Ira Gershwin.
    Availability: Date when a dozen copies of the beta version will be hurriedly
    shrink-wrapped for the benefit of the press and the investment community.
    Backup: The chore you were really, honestly, going to do the very next thing
    before you switched drive letters and accidentally copied older, out-of-date
    versions of you files over all your newer ones at 3 a.m.
    Buffer: The only other job - involving a chamois at the car wash - for which
    most computer store salespeople are qualified.

    spelling dictionaries that are thrown in with cheap clones so you think you're
    getting real value for your money.

    Monday8:05am User called to say they forgot password. Told them to use password retrieval utility called FDISK. Blissfully ignorant, they thank me and hang up. God, we let the people vote and drive, too? 8:12am Accounting called to say they couldn't access expense reports database. Gave them Standard Sys Admin Answer #112, "Well, it works for me." Let them rant and rave while I unplugged my coffeemaker from the UPS and plugged their server back in. Suggested they try it again. One more happy customer... 8:14 am User from 8:05 call said they received error message "Error accessing Drive C." Told them it was an OS problem. Transferred them to microsupport.11:00 am Relatively quiet for last few hours. Decide to plug support phone back in so I can call my girlfriend. Says parents are coming into town this weekend.

    On the first day of Christmas, technology gave to me
    A database with a broken b-tree (what the hell is a b-tree anyway?)
    On the second day of Christmas, technology gave to me
    Two transceiver failures (CRC errors? Collisions? What is going on?)
    And a database with a broken b-tree (Rebuild WHAT? It's a 10GB database!)
    On the third day of Christmas, technology gave to me
    Three French users (who, of course, think they know everything)
    Two transceiver failures (which are now spewing packets all over the net)
    And a database with a broken b-tree (Backup? What backup?)
    On the fourth day of Christmas, technology gave to me
    Four calls for support (playing the same Christmas song over and over)
    Three French users (Why do they like to argue so much over trivial things?)
    Two transceiver failures (How the hell do I know which ones they are?)
    And a database with a broken b-tree (Pointer error? What's a pointer error?)
    On the fifth more...
