A Funny Website – With Funny Tech Jokes, Too

My son is scouting for engineering schools, and came across www.engineeringedu.com. He also discovered its jokes page. Apropos my earlier blog today, the site (http://www.engineeringedu.com/jokes.html) features, among others, this little ditty:

New Lyrics to Beatles Song – “Yesterday”

All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my database has gone away.
Oh I believe in yesterday.

There’s not half the files there used to be.
And there’s a milestone hanging over me.
The system crashed, so suddenly.

I pushed something wrong,
What it was, I could not say.
Now all my data’s gone,
And I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.

the need for back-ups seemed so far away.
I knew my data was all here to stay,
Now I believe in yesterday.
