Unfortunately, I find I have to subvocalise to do this 'to the
tune of' stuff. (I could vocalise, but then I have contusions.)
This one needed practice, because I kept laughing so hard I
had to struggle to remember the tune for the next verse.

------------------------------------------------------- HUMOR. Many thanks to Steve Shipway <steve@imperial.co.uk> for the following, to be sung to the tune of "My Favourite Things."

PPP Daemons and protocol routers TCP/IP and fast system booters Long network cables like tincans on strings These are a few of the Internet things

Serial modems and null-modem cables Millions of dip switches, all without labels Flow control, stop bits, software and hard Wondering why your connection is barred

INN, CNEWS, nntp servers slurp to collect it (do we really deserve this?) Route it to daemon, cross fingers and pray This is what happens most every day.

Internal subnets, with bridges and routers Protocol stacks on DOS/Windows computers Flaky net configs that break on a whim Leaving the packets stuffed into a SIMM

FTP proxies and webfile homepages Clueless Mac users in mad crazy rages Protocol packets that stop for their tea Leaving me wondering where the hell they can be

HTML specs and World Wide Web rootfiles POP3, SMTP, DNS bootfiles MMDF and the sendmail config Why is the mail spool direct'ry so big?

When the POP dies! When the line drops! When I'm feeling stress ... I simply start playing with my network configs, And get into a much ... worse mess.
