‘Twas the night before GA when all through the house
the devs where dropping keyboards and mice
They went and grabbed themselves a few beers
and said to each other: job well done, cheers buddy, cheers!
“A piece of beauty it is, someone said”,
while visions of promotions danced in their heads.
Then all of a sudden someone shouted on some blog
“there is a new version out there with a super change log!”
The older versions might have done the trick
But with all those bugs they looked kinda sick.
“They call it version 3 and although it’s an oh oh,
it looks really great! See?! Go download, go!”
They forgot their backups and download they did
a really big zip file and felt like some kids
Installers went crazy and people unzipped
at a speed so fast that the time fabric ripped
Everything was fine and oh so fast
Those people where all just having a blast
When all of a sudden someone cried WTF!
I think I’m all of a sudden a bit out of luck!
Out on the forums, there arose such a clatter
The devs took a look to see what was the matter
“Things are a bit different, see? Here and there!
It’s not a trick, I promise, I swear!”
Voices of concern came from all around
things where really not all that sound.
The devs emptied their beer and grabbed another
before they started talking to each other
The users were lost, didn’t know what to do
“Save me!” they shouted and “Me too! me too!”
The bug reports soon flew through the air
and someone crawled back in his chair
He thought, while he lurked on his drink,
“I’ll fix these things, stop raising this stink!”
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And fixed all the problems; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, a new download arose;
The upload went well, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew ran the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he left for the sun,
“Happy Christmas to all, and enjoy three oh one!”
