LAN of confusion …

I tend to like reworking the lyrics of existing songs in slightly humourous ways (at least to me) and this one has been stuck in my head recently, so I’m going to give it a try. This is based on the Genesis song “Land of Confusion”:

I must’ve launched a thousand apps
Been haunted by a million users
But I can hear the grinding drives
They’re running at their peak

Now did you read the groups today
They say the printer’s gone away
But I can see the status’s still alight
There burning, there on the right

There’s too many apps, too many users
Making too many problems
And not much mem to go round
Can’t you see this is a LAN of confusion?

Well this is the LAN we live in
And these are the hosts we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth logging in

Ooh, superuser where are you now
When everything’s gone wrong somehow?
We’ve lost the ‘Net, we’ve lost the power
We’re losing control by the hour

What is the time, what is the pace
Do we look for the cable
But there’s not much mem to go round
Tell me why, this is a LAN of confusion

This is the LAN we live in
And these are the hosts we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth blogging in

I remember long ago when the app was flying
Yes, and the statuses were bright all through the night
And the sound of your laughter as we played Quake right, so long ago

I won’t be coming home tonight
My IT section will put it right
Hope we’re not making promises
That you know, we just can’t keep

Too many apps, there’s too many users
Making too many problems
And not much mem to go round
Can’t you see, this is a LAN of confusion?

Now this is the LAN we live in
And these are the hosts we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth paying for

These are the hosts we live in
And these are the names they’re given
Stand up and let’s start showing
Just where our lives are going to

(Without the Internet …)
