(Image by Casey Burns) I just can't remember what it is. Oh right, it's Server Reboot Wednesday!! If you've arrived late, Server Reboot Wednesday is an internal team-building exercise at SW that has certain core principles and other highly corny variables. Catch up on previous editions starting here. Liane and Will are both on the line, so let's play. Server Reboot Wednesday: Comic Relief Edition.
Jerry Seinfeld: “What is up with server reboots? It’s like a nap for computers, but it only lasts for 45 seconds. Do the computers think, ‘Ah, great! Finally I get to rest, relax and…no, wait I’m starting up again!’ No wonder computers crash – I’d crash too if I only slept for a minute a week. What’s up with that?” George Carlin: “Here are the seven words you can’t say while rebooting your server…” Steve Martin: “I’d like to talk about rebooting computers, but first, a little ‘Foggy Mountain Breakdown.’” (Plays banjo) Mitch Hedberg: “Hey man, I don’t own a computer, but I do have a clock that occasionally e-mails shit.” Rodney Dangerfield: “…and I said “Server? I don’t even know her!” I tell ya, no respect…” (Tugs at collar and sweats) Dennis Miller: “I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but rebooting servers is kind of like Noam Chomsky playing badminton with Bella Abzug while the cast of My Two Dads does a kabuki version of The Vagina Monologues while reading excerpts of Tolstoy’s Kreutzer Sonata in the nude.” Gallagher: “With the Reboot-o-Matic 2000, rebooting servers becomes a snap! Just watch!” (Smashes computer with sledgehammer) Bill Hicks: “I love talking about server reboots, ‘cause it’s a perfect example how the mass media controls information, keeping us quiet and docile while at the same time…oh, I’m sorry. Wrong meeting.” Chevy Chase: “I’m rebooting the servers…and you’re not.” (Falls down stairs) Yakov Smirnov: “In Russia, you don’t reboot servers -- servers reboot YOU! Ah ah. What a country!” Henny Youngman: “Close your programs before you leave…please.”
Reboots begin at 6pm. Please close all programs before you leave. Thank you, I’ll be here all week…
