A blast from the past

I was chatting with someone the other day and he reminded me that I had a very old hobby – I wrote rhymes, poems and jokes back in the days. I thought that I should share something I wrote back in 2017 on a forum + a new one.

The first one is based on System of a Down’s song – Lonely Day.

Such a lonely day (Router Version)

Such a lonely day
and I am down.
Again a lonely day of my life.

Such a lonely day,
should be banned.
Even my port wasn’t scanned.

The most loneliest day of my life.
The most loneliest day of my life.

Such a lonely day
and no kilobytes,
but I am still blinking my lights.
Even we routers have rights,
to be online all the time
you should know, bandwidth is prime.

The diary of a router

Day 1: They set me up. Is this a datacenter? Looks abandoned. Nevermind. Yupee. Time to start processing bandwidth.
Day 2: I am online, but no one is connected to me. I am just sitting here in a corner and blinking. I expect some traffic soon,
Day 3: Boring day, didn’t even see humans entering or exiting.
Day 4: Saw one guy entering with some box. He left it in the middle of the room and quickly went out.
Day 5: Random activity, but no one would pass around me.
…….
Day 350: No one cares about me. I think people forgot that I exist. At least here I am, in my corner still blinking lights.
Day 351: I finally decided to turn off my Wi-Fi signal. No one cares about me and I got bored of it.

Hosting Woes

A host went poof,
someone did goof.
Do you need any proof,
when complaints are through the roof.

Shit does hit the fan,
support team gets a ban.
In PayPal you get dispute,
upstream goes mute.

Cables down, cables down,
Mixed in a random way.
No one laughs – NOC does frown,
Clients have shit to say.

Refund, refund they say.
You have no money to pay.
When you are down,
you look like clown,
you took a wrong way.

Thanks for reading to anyone who read it. 🙂
