The Network Connection

With all the problems we’ve been having down here, you eventually start to become inspired to find an outlet, a way of bringing forth all your frustrations and desires into a singular vision. For some, it is art, for others it’s the urge to beat the living crap out of something.  

For me, it’s music.  

Feel free to sing along. I’m sure you know the tune

Where are there so many drops in our network
Out into the internet?
Our network is simple, really quite basic,
But which I daily reset.
So we’ve been told by our service provider
We’ll just have to wait and see.
Someday we’ll find it, the network connection,
The routers, the servers, and me.  

Who said that ATM was a good system?
Bandwidth gets shared too far.
All it takes is just one jerk to tie up the router
And then you can’t send your TAR.  
What’s so amazing ’bout tech that’s so aging
When fibre was just meant to be?
Someday we’ll find it, the network connection,
The routers, the servers, and me.  

It’s down whenever it rains,
I think it’s going to be tragic…

We’ve been promised fibre for over a month now,
I hope it comes any day.
Then we’ll surf the internet without an outage,
And upload without delay.
We’ll have our own servers and not be dependent
On our Calgary family.  
Someday we’ll find it, the network connection,
The routers, the servers, and me!  

La, la la lee la da do, la aw crap, the friggin’ thing’s out again…

With apologies to Paul Williams, Kenneth Ascher, and Kermit the Frog.
