The Times They Are Still Changin

by dusty anderson

Come gather round people wherever you roam

and accept that the networks around you have grown

and admit that software piracy you don't condone

if your data to you is worth saving

then you better make backups

on your macs or pc clones

for the times they are a changin

Come students and staffers who double-click with your mice

and keep your eyes open - your screen savers look so nice

and don't blame network downtime on poltergeists

the new copy of WORD just delivered

takes 2 dozen diskettes and needs 40 megabytes

cos' the times they are a changin

Come faculty and administrators, please read your e-mail

it's been there for months now and it's gettin stale

our attempts to get more disk space from ADP have failed

the battle on campus is ragin

whether we will use windows or macs will prevail

yup the times they are a changin

Come users and sysadmins all over the LAN

your bandwidth requirements we don't understand

your digital desktops and cryptic commands

your multimedia stations

were not in the budget

of our five year plan

but the times they are a changin

With Ethernet, Token Ring and FDDI

we've got the best network that money can buy

with Internet access and registration on-line

but yesterday when he was cleaning

the janitor unplugged the power

and all systems died

oh the times they are a changin
