2006-01-21 "Lady Madonna"

Better late than never to ramp up the songmobile for 2006!


I’ve been mostly out of commission the last few weeks as the coughing / sneezing / sore throat bug has been going around at home, with friends and at the office. I think I will survive, so let’s move on!


My signature line that I’ve used for years with my posts (“The days pass by so quickly now…”) come from an old John Denver song, ‘Poems, Prayers & Promises’. After working wiith computers for over 30 years, the line seems to some it all up very nicely. There’s never enough hours in the day to get everything done. We all put a lot of work and effort into our jobs, our hobbies and our families.


For this week’s song of the week, we turn to a Beatles’ tune that reminds us about the working world


Lady Madonna
aka: Fixing Your Server

Fixing your server, CD’s ’round your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.
Who takes the money, when you download files?
Did you think that money was Bill Gate’s child?

Friday night arrives with network problems.
Sunday morning, emails are all gone.
Monday finds the server won’t reboot now.
See how they run.

Fixing your server, newsgroups on the line
Wonder how you manage to find the time.
Repairing those disk drives, lying on the bed.
Listen to the music playing in your head.

Tuesday afternoon is never ending.
Wednesday morning updates didn’t load
Thursday night your Anti-Virus needed mending.
See how it goes?

Fixing your server, backups are so neat
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.
