Ping that coffee machine!

with 2 comments

Since both the coffee machines were found in a powered off state today on our floor, I happened to ask my trusted technology head if we should give the datacenter chaps a call to tell them that we have two boxes that were down. They should actually have IP addresses that the vendors can get a console on, remotely fix what’s wrong and get on with a nice hot cuppa which would be wonderful in this weather. Windows Live Coffee Care, anyone?

  1. The last thing we should do is left Microsoft manage anything that might affect
    coffee. They would make an average blend of coffee that would taste bitter on
    a regular basis, yet wouldn’t reveal their recipe for it. If you called in to
    troubleshoot your coffee, they’d charge you $495 a year for support. They
    would also keep upgrading the mugs they sell with it every year and make you
    think that you could only drink Windows coffee from them.

    I would just be ugly.

  2. That had me laughing like an idiot while staring at the laptop. Not a good thing to happen while you are at work, though it happens way too often.

    And what if we open sourced it? I guess we’d have to deal with claims from SCOffee then!
