Friday Funny: Extending More Power
September 6th, 2013 By: Colleen Miller
It’s Friday! And you know how we like to end the work week with a little humor. Our Data Center Knowledge cartoon contest is a perfect way to have a few laughs on a Friday.
Diane Alber, our data center cartoonist, writes, “Running out of power or power strips, or patch cords can be a pretty common problem. . .Let’s see how Kip and Gary fix this one. . .” Submit your caption suggestions below.
Also, big congratulations to our reader JL, who submitted, “The new methane generators have arrived.” for our cartoon, How Remote Do You Go?.
New to the caption contest? Here’s how it works: 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 receives a hard copy print, with his or her caption included in the cartoon!

Just 5 or 6 more cords and we can reach the neighbor’s building

This should be long enough for us to access the power of the cloud.

NEMA 15-5 means we’re allowed to daisy chain between 5 and 15 extension cords together.
Ok, rock-scissors-paper for the last C19

It’s the circle of life…for data centers.
If it reaches into the hall, we’ll have to tell marketing our watts/sqft went up.

No, Gary, I think it’s not the right time for skipping ropes

Must be the new VIRTUAL POWER cable!

You plug yours into “A” and I’ll plug mine into “B” and we’ll make a new “AB” system
This will work great as a booby trap for unauthorized visitors!

Well sure its legal. Why would they make them if it wasn’t legal.
Could this improve our PUE?
