2005-07-31 “Summer In The City”

So, here we are at the end of July, which is important for several reasons. First, my wife and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary this past week. Second, we’re half way through the summer heat and humidity of Florida weather. And third, we’re close enough to start our countdown to this year’s SMB Nation Conference, to be held in Redmond – see www.smbnation.com .

Speaking of the heat and humidity, let’s turn to a fun song from John Sebastian, and the Lovin’ Spoonfuls … originally released in late 1966!

Summer in the City

aka Spammers in my Server

 



(note: fast forward to about 1:06 into the file)


Hot town, spammers in my server
Disks have all crashed, and things aren’t any better
Still down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be any help in the city
All around, people looking half dead
Staring at their blank screens, hotter than a match head

 
But at night it’s a different world
Loadin’ patches, head’s in a swirl

Come-on come-on and work all night
Despite the heat it’ll be alright
And babe, don’t you know it’s a pity
That the days can’t be like the nights
And the hackers, in the city
And the spammers, what a pity

 

Cool time, evening in the city
Working so hard, the server’s looking pretty
Bad news, we found another bugger
Now I’m on the warpath, so they better take coverr
Till I’m wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna throw it off the rooftop

But at night it’s a different world

Server’s fine, I’m out with my girl
Come-on come-on and work all night
Despite the heat it’ll be alright
And babe, don’t you know it’s a pity
That the days can’t be like the nights
And the hackers, in the city
And the spammers, what a pity

Hot town, summer in Seattle
Back of my neck, still dirty from the battle
Still down, spammers in the shadows
Doesn’t seem to be help from Gates or his pals
All around, people looking half dead
Pop-ups on their desktops, hotter than a match head

But at night it’s a different world

Scanning files, and lookin’ for those pearls
Come-on come-on and work all night
Despite the heat it’ll be alright
And babe, don’t you know it’s a pity
That the days can’t be like the nights
And the hackers, in the city
And the spammers, what a pity
