Friday Funny: Raised Floor Adventures
March 22nd, 2013 By: Colleen Miller
It’s Friday and time for a few laughs. Towards that end, we run our caption contest on Fridays, with cartoons drawn by Diane Alber, our fav data center cartoonist! Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor.
First, we must announce the winner of the “Pot of Gold” cartoon: Congrats to Colton Brown of Dupont Fabros who submitted, “Don’t worry, Gary! He’s our new private equity investor!”
This week we present “Raised Floor Adventures.” Diane writes, “I’ve heard that people have found all sorts of weird things under the raised floor. . .” Enter your caption suggestion below.
The caption contest works like this: We provide the cartoon and you, our readers, submit the captions. We then choose finalists and the readers vote for their favorite funniest suggestion.
The winner will receive his or her caption in a signed print by Diane.
For the previous cartoons on DCK, see our Humor Channel.

I thought server sprawl was bad!

“I guess it’s not because of zinc whiskers, eh…”
Jason WoodrumPosted March 22nd, 2013
Wow! These dust bunnies are really multiplying.
Are you aware of the fact we both walked in here with our coffee?
Phil KamanPosted March 22nd, 2013
“No way am I checking these bunnies for Zinc whiskers”
“I told you that rabbits won’t work as a UPS”

So these are the bunnies that place the Easter Eggs in our code.

I knew you said it was going to be ‘hairy’ under the floor, just not that ‘harey;!
Gordon WhitePosted March 22nd, 2013
So, when I told you we had a replication problem in the data center…

When I said to secretary : “Get me some verified jumpers!” I meant for the motherboard troubleshooting…

Kip, a raised floor doesn’t mean you can raise bunnies
Unexpected side-effect of the new Multi system. This wasn’t apparent in testing!
When that consultant told us we had a rabbit warren under the raised floor, I thought it was a metaphor.
Craig NorrisPosted March 23rd, 2013
Dammit Kip, I asked for more redundancy, not reBUNdancy!
BrianPosted March 23rd, 2013
I told you hiring a pair of rabbits to clean under there was a bad idea.
Ryan FoglemanPosted March 24th, 2013
God I hope there an app for that !
RicPosted March 24th, 2013
“I have never seen them multiply so fast. Must be something in the chilled water!”
Is this another one of your ‘hare’ brained ideas to increase profitability?
Looks like we’re heading down another rabbit hole.
Dan LindPosted March 25th, 2013
Well, I guess it’s better than the ‘rat’s nest’ you told me to expect under there!
[...] I’ve heard that people have found all sorts of weird things under the raised floor. . .There have been some great captions submitted already don’t forget to check them out! You can see them here [...]
Michael GrayPosted March 26th, 2013
Kip, you forgot to tie the pull cords to their tails.
Jeff WomboldPosted March 27th, 2013
Hmmm… computer bugs seems to be taking on a whole new meaning!
1) Should we replace that tile with a hare vent?
2) See, I told you if we poured boiling water down the hole we’d get hot cross bunnies

This may be why there are so many hops in the Network.

I guess that rabbit consolidation project isn’t showing those TCO savings quite yet…
David DrysdalePosted April 26th, 2013
I don’t think we’re getting those deduplication ratios we were promised at ALL.
