Let's see YOU work "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" in there :-p
Newest addition to the ticket queue, based on a phone conversation with "FROST ROBT K ":
6/20 TR - Robert Frost called in and needs some computer support.

After a long time being Acquainted With The Night, his computer went Out, Out, and now turns on with great Reluctance. Before he gives it a Home Burial, or retires it out to The Pasture, he wants to drive The Road Not Taken (from Sierra City into Nevada City) and run it by The Mending Wall.

Now, we're Stars of the internet fixing world, but the problem with The Code of his operating system is Neither Out Far Nor In Deep in our specialty. If he were to Come In to us, we might be here until October reinstalling Windows XP. I referred him to The Black Cottage across the highway and gave him Clientworks' number. They have Good Hours and the Dedication to fix his failing-to-boot problem.

--

Some say his OS will end in upgrades,
Some say in bugs.
From what I have seen of Windows
I hold with those who favor woes.

But if equipment is replaced,
I've seen enough of Plug and Play
To say that endless hardware hacks
Will make him bray
And buy a Mac.

Clearly, I am far too bored today and need to find some billing to enter into the system.

Wow. That was heavy-handed in a very, very good way.

Yeah, I'm not certain why I didn't use the Pun Warning icon. Fixed.

> You wild, uncontrolled maniac, you.

Keep it on the down low ... but when I'm done, I might ... *looks around* ... submit a DSL order to AT&T.

It was in a poetry class that we met, but I'm pretty sure I took a pass on Frost (only so many hours in the day). Ah, memories.

Answering the Phone ona Busy Evening

(Link)
Whose glitch is this? How should I know
When Windows and Intel both blow?
The customer won't care. It's clear
He just wants his machine to go.
The other techs would laugh and cheer
To know they'd miss this call I hear
These puzzling problems I must take--
I wish I had another beer.
Perhaps the code has some mistake
Or he clicked on a site that's fake
That gave him virusses to keep
Or from his drives his files did take.
Frustration tries to make me weep
But I've a script to which I keep
To shut him up before I sleep,
To shut him up before I sleep.
