The Lyrics

I couldn't resist this one, after joking "O:, which art on server"... obviously "R:" fits the original better, though.

A couple of pronunciation notes:
"R:" - pronounced "R colon"
"TC/PIP" - as "tic-pip" rather than tee cee pee eye pee
"SCSI" - a bit like an apologising Italian: "scuzzy"
Which art on server
Mirrored be thy RAID
Thy Admin Lord
Thy data stored
On tape as it is on hard disk

Give us this day our failure log
And test pass our UPS's
As we protect all with UPS backup
And log us into Active Directory
But deliver us from users

For thine is the network
The TC/PIP, the SCSI
Now, clever, endeavour:

Profound Phil. I would have left the slash off of TCPIP instead of putting in the wrong place... just a nit pick. 5's
BIN there, DUN that, got the ERROR message.

Yeah, Tim - you're probably right about leaving the slash out altogether, but written as TCP/IP, you always want to say it wrong. Some you WINS, some you lose ;-)

Why not "deliver us from Windows"? Or was this the wrong context for another shot at Big BG?
Phil Alexander - June 13, 2005 - Report this comment
"Users of Windows", even more so ;-) If you wonder why, have a look at this one:
