Dad and MOM

Happy Father's Day
May day not interrupted
Please no MOM Alerts

To all the mothers out there, I am not putting you down because it is almost Father's Day. The MOM in the above haiku is short for Microsoft Operations Manager. It's some kind of monitoring tool, produced by Microsoft, to send alerts when a server reaches a certain state, e.g. low disk space or high temperature. At least I think that's what it does. In my relatively new role in the so-called server management department, I hear "MOM alert" a lot but I am not involved in any of it.

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there, especially those in the digital trenches, fighting the digital evildoers everyday to keep your network humming.

    Excellant post as usual Qaptain.

    How about this here southern Haiku for the evil Meat Eaters that read your blog:

    Mother Cow feeds her young
    screams then silence
    Hard or soft Taco
