An IT system tragedy in five limericks
This is a tale of distress
caused by a system on Access,
which failed one day
in a spectacular way,
leaving users in a bit of a mess.
File-based databases are prone
to crashing for reasons unknown.
So it was no surprise
to the IT guy.
“I knew it would happen,” he groaned.
The boss went totally ballistic,
turning red and apoplectic.
He told the IT guy,
“It will be good-bye
unless you get off your rear and fix it.”
On hearing he could be history,
the IT guy rolled up his sleeves
and tried to revive
the system that died,
but gray stayed the monitor screen.
The lesson to learn from this tale
is to backup your systems each day.
Disaster can strike
any time, day or night .
Be prepared! It’s the only way.
