2004-11-26 “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”

Lot’s of posts recently on a variety of subjects — ISA vs anything else, to patch or not to patch, spyware (scumware), Raid configurations, firewalls and XP SP2 blocks applications from running, … and the list goes on.. It reminds me that we can’t satisfy all the people all the time.

So, let’s jump straight into this week’s song — which was recorded almost 40 years ago (tell me it ain’t so!) by the Rolling Stones–

I Can’t Get No Satisfaction
aka I Can’t Run No Application

I can’t run no application, I can’t run no application
‘Cause I try and I patch and I load and I cry
I can’t run no, I can’t run no

When I’m workin’ at my desk, and the boss comes on the intercom
He’s tellin’ me more and more that AOL has some useful information
Supposed to fire my imagination

I can’t get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey
That’s what I say

I can’t run no application, I can’t run no application
‘Cause I can’t and I don’t but I should and I’ll try
I can’t run no, I can’t run no

When I’m watchin’ my server and the event log tells me
How bad my server looks
But, this can’t be my server ’cause it doesn’t work
like it says in Harry’s book

I can’t run no.
Oh, no, no, no.
Hey, hey, hey, That’s what I say

I can’t run no application, I can’t run no application
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can’t run no, I can’t run no

When I’m workin’ straight thru the night,
and I’m patchin’ this and it’s lookin’ right
But when I try to reboot, and it tells me
Baby, better come back maybe next week
‘Cause you see I’m on a losing streak

I can’t run no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey
That’s what I say. I can’t get no, I can’t get no
I can’t run no application, no application
No application, no application
