Many, MANY thanks to Nick C for sending this to me today. I haven’t laughed this hard at a video in… oh wait, just a few days.

Still, damn funny stuff though.

Dey Dook Ur Jebs!!!

One of the most quoted South Park moments in our house is “They took our jobs!” mostly because it’s great fun imitating what the line turns into as the episode progresses (jibberish). I didn’t realize how many episodes since then included the line, but here’s all of them. ALL OF THEM!

(Update: Well, there was a video here but youtube took it down. No ha-ha’s for us.)

I have no idea what’s up with the fat naked dude at the end.

Great Moments in Customer Responses

September 15th, 2007 1 comment

This is one of the best, hell, THE best customer response I think I’ve ever received:

You guys are great. Even when I do something completely stupid — COMPLETELY!
STUPID! — you’re still so dadgum polite and helpful. Man alive, you guys
rock. And I solemnly swear to be less stupid.

Basically this was an issue where a backup was desperately needed, and thankfully it was available (not that I thought it wouldn’t be, but there’s always that fear when you start looking for said backup).

It’s definitely worth noting here that this customer didn’t actually do anything stupid. It was an innocent mistake that could happen to anyone no matter your level of experience.

So here’s to you! I’m glad I could help, and thanks for making this sysadmin’s day 🙂

Great Moments in SMTP Conversations

August 18th, 2007 1 comment

Most people online don’t know this unless they’re a support tech. When you send an email your SMTP server actually has a little conversation with the recipient’s mail server. They issue commands back and forth, acknowledge the commands, and process the mail.

Today while looking at a server’s email queue run logs I noticed the following choice bit of server admin humor:

SMTP<< 220 ESMTP spamd IP-based SPAM blocker; Sat Aug 18 08:14:39 2007 SMTP>> EHLO

SMTP<< 250 Hello, spam sender. Pleased to be wasting your time. SMTP>> MAIL FROM

SMTP<< 250 You are about to try to deliver spam. Your time will be spent, for nothing. SMTP>> RCPT TO: xxxxx.xxxxxx@xxxxxxx.xx

SMTP<< 250 This is hurting you more than it is hurting me. SMTP>> DATA

The best part is the server that was receiving the mail (issuing the “hello spammer” responses) intentionally slowed each of its responses down to keep the other server busy. This type of setup actually costs spammers money as a transaction that normally takes under a second is now taking over 3 minutes.
