[vox] [OT] "Losing my Connection"

Found in the deep dark depths of files, something I pulled from a BBS
(you remember those, don't you!?) in 1994... wow, that's almost 10 years
ago now.  Eep :^{

Anyway, author unknown.  Enjoy :)


Oh disk, is smaller
Smaller than you and you are not me
The backups I will go to
The distance between tapes
Oh no I've filled the disk
I filled it up

That's me in the system
That's me at the login
Losing my connection
Trying to stay logged in

And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've grepped too much
Couldn't grep enough

I thought that I heard deleting
I thought that I heard you say
I think I thought the files were safe

Every print-out of every waking hour
I'm dumping all my data
Trying to keep my files on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded LAN... LAN
Oh no I saved too much
I saved it all

Consider this
Consider this bug of the century
Consider this the bug
That brought DOS to its knees

What if all these data dumps come spewing out
And now I've printed too much

I thought that I heard you printing
I thought that I heard you swear
I think I thought I saw you print

That was just a ream
That was just a ream

That's me at the printer
That's me in the print queue
Losing all my source code
Trying to keep coding

And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've saved too much
I haven't saved enough

I thought that I heard you PRUNEing
I thought that I saw me save
I think I thought I saw the files

But that was just a dream
File, line, byte, die
That was just a dream
Just a dream, dream

(The "Press RETURN for more..." bits that were captured by my terminal app
were removed for readability. ;^) )
