    Default Your choice: Abort, Retry, Ignore

    Once upon a midnight dreary,
    Fingers cramped and vision bleary,
    System manuals piled high
    and wasted paper on the floor,
    Longing for the warmth of bedsheets,
    Still I sat here doing spreadsheets:
    Having reached the bottom line,
    I took a floppy from the drawer.
    Typing with a steady hand,
    4 nice23 - Your choice: Abort, Retry, Ignore
    I then invoked the "save" command
    But got instead a reprimand:
    It read, "Abort, Retry, Ignore?"
    Was this some occult illusion?
    Some maniacal type intrusion?
    These were choices Solomon himself,
    Had never faced before.
    Carefully I weighed my options...
    These three seemed to be the top ones.

    Clearly I must now adopt one;
    choose: Abort, Retry, Ignore?
    With my fingers pale and trembling
    Slowly toward the keyboard bending,
    Longing for a happy ending,
    Hoping all would be restored
    Praying for some guarantee,
    Finally I pressed a key.
    But what on the screen did I see?

    Again "Abort, Retry, Ignore?"
    I tried to catch the chips off guard -
    I pressed again, but twice as hard,
    But luck was just not on the cards,
    I saw what I had seen before.
    Now I typed in desperation
    Trying random combinations.
    Still there came the incantation
    "Abort, Retry, Ignore."

    There I sat, distraught, exhausted,
    By my own machine accosted
    Getting up, I turned away
    And paced across the office floor.
    And then I saw an awful sight
    A bold and blinding flash of light
    A lightening bolt that cut the night,
    And shook me to my very core.
    The PC screen collapsed and died.
    "OH NO! MY DATABASE!" I cried.

    I heard a distant voice reply,
    "You'll see your spreadsheets...nevermore!"
    To this day I do not know
    The place to which our data goes.
    Perhaps it goes to heaven,
    Where the angels have it stored.
    But as for Productivity, well,
    I fear this has gone straight to Hell.
    And that's the tale I have to tell -
    Your choice: Abort, Retry, Ignore.
