Friday Funny: Cartoon Caption Contest
January 20th, 2012 By: Colleen Miller
Happy Friday, everyone! It’s the new year and we are all setting goals and sticking to our New Year’s resolutions. Some of us are more successful than others. . .
Well, in this week’s cartoon by Diane Alber, our resident data center cartoonist, Kip has decided he is going to try and achieve two goals at once – exercising and saving energy. We’re just not sure how successful he is going to be.
Here’s how the caption contest works: We provide the cartoon, drawn by Diane, and you, the readers, can submit the caption in the comments below. We will then choose three finalists and the readers will have a chance to vote on their favorite. The winner will receive a signed print including the winning caption.
For more of Diane’s work, visit KipandGary.com
Submit your caption idea in our comments section.

Kip great work, you saved 1 KW of power but the dehumidifier just died
[...] So it’s the new year and everyone is compiling their list for new year’s resolutions. ..As I watched the ball drop in New York on tv they did a twitter poll of the top 5 news years resolution and the two that caught my attention (not that it was surprising) was , “saving money” and “start working out”. So I figured what a better way to kick off the new year then Kip and Gary trying their new year’s resolution. It’s crazy but there are bike powered washing machines it’s called Cyclean…pretty fitting name. And everyone knows of Sherrif Joe out of Arizona that makes has immates ride bikes to watch TV….So maybe kip’s idea isn’t that bad??Click here to provide your caption! [...]
and I was so excited when I signed up for the free company fitness program

Oh boy. I know money is tight, but this value engineered bike-flywheel UPS scares me.

1.21 jigawatts to keep this room running? I’m not sure I can peddle 88 miles per hour…
Kip’s really working for that promotion
Couldn’t we just turn up the temperature to ASHRAE guidelines to save energy, Kip?

Kip, I know you like to do your lactate threshold tests in the data center but you simply do not put out enough watts to justify setting off the water detection alarm every five minutes.

So! How long have you worked for the MPAA?

Can you pedal a little faster? I’m getting ready to watch the final season of Lost on Hulu. . .

I’m not sure this will fufill our backup power requirements to reach tier 4 status
Benjamin BonniciPosted January 22nd, 2012
Wow, you just cannot catch a break with Diane at the helm, can you Kip?
Frank BulkPosted January 22nd, 2012
I hope the power supplies have variable input ranges.
TimPosted January 22nd, 2012
Kip, the hamsters said to pedal faster!
DavidPosted January 23rd, 2012
State-of-the-art no-break solution! Kip up the good work!

I’m not sure what has you more motivated, Kip… The bet with your wife as to who can lose more weight, or your annual performance review meeting next week.
Aaron LPosted January 26th, 2012
Adding features to Data Center…On-site gym, check! N+1, check! Thanks Kip!

Ya know Kip, we should post a picture of this in our blog to show customers just how far we’ll go for uptime.

I’m not certain you can personally claim an energy tax credit for this Kip.
