2005-05-08 “The Rainbow Connection”

Here in the states, it’s Mother’s Day. So Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! BTW, do other countries celebrate something similar? On the radio yesterday, I heard that the originally Mother’s Day was meant to be a day for world peace. Certainly, my mom kept the peace in our family!

Here in SBS land, we are anxiously (?) awaiting the release of SBS2003 Service Pack 1. Once that hits the street, we will be off rockin’ and rollin’ for several weeks, I’m sure. At times like this, I always look for a nice song that will keep me happy and awake at 2am as I am reinstalling SBS.

So our song of the week goes back to the Muppets’ vvery first full length movie … it’s a classic, in my book …

The Rainbow Connection
aka The Windows Connection

Why are there so many bugs when we use Windows
And why can’t the errors subside?
Windows is a vision, and only illusions,
And Windows has nothing to hide.
So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it
I know they’re wrong, wait and see.
Someday we’ll find it, the Windows connection,
The hackers, the scammers and me.

Who said that every bug would be heard and answered
When posted in the newsgroup?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it,
And look what it’s done so far.
What’s so amazing that keeps us Gates-gazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we’ll find it, the Windows connection,
The patches, the fixes, and me.

All of us under its spell,
We know that it’s probably magic…

Have you been half asleep?
And have you worked all night?
I’ve heard MVP’s calling your name. …
Is this the sweet sound that makes us fell alright?
The voice might be one and the same
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it
It’s something that I’m s’posed to be…
Someday we’ll find it, the Windows connection,
Bill Gates, the newsgroups, and me.

Laa, da daa dee da daa daa …
