Friday Funny: Lucky Data Center

It’s got to be a lucky data center!

Here’s how it works: Diane Alber, the Arizona artist who created Kip and Gary, creates a cartoon, and we challenge our readers to submit the funniest, most clever caption they think will be a fit. Then we ask our readers to vote for the best submission and the winner receives a signed print of the cartoon. Submit your caption for the cartoon above in the comments.

Congratulations to Todd, whose caption won the Star Wars edition of the contest. His caption was: “Stop calling the cold aisle ‘The Dark Side,’ you Nerf herder!”

Some good submissions came in for last month’s New Year Server Refresh edition – all we need now is a winner. Help us out by submitting your vote below!

It’s the new year and it’s time for some upgrading!

    Blimey, I bet they didn't see think of this when they decide to use the North Sea breeze for cooling.

    So does this get us Rhodium LEED status?

  3. Action plan to remediate the "unlucky" string of outages last month: growing 4 leaf clovers, rabbits feet for all personnel, and a horseshoe hung over the backup vault.

    Lucky us! We get to run the first green data center in the company's history!

    You may see this as lucky, but I see it as a humidity control issue.
