‘Sno disco like a WANdisco!

‘Twas the night before Xmas when all through WANdisco,

Not a server was stirring, not even in San Francisco.

That rhyme was shocking, but bear with me do

For a festive Subversion poem from me to you.

Our commits are nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of repos dance in their heads,

With Glengarry Glen Ross watching over our stuff

I hope I’ll get home, pray the roads aren’t too rough.

See England’s had snow, more than ever before

But that didn’t stop us launching MultiSite 4

And 1.6.15 binaries

Subversion goes on, even in the big freeze.

But back to my ode to this most festive poem,

With an SVN theme since that’s how we roll:

Oh, what to my wandering eyes should appear,

But a Subversion solution with eight binary types, dear

With a little old driver, so lively and quick

I knew in a moment it must be SVNick.

More rapid than CVS his binaries came,

And he whistled and shouted and called them by name:

“Now Windows, now RedHat, now Debian and CentOS,

On Ubuntu, SuSe Linux, Solaris and Tortoise!”

“To the top of the pack! To the top of the wall!

Subversion’s number 1 in version control!”

As I drew in my head, and was turning around

Down my chimney SVNick came with a bound.

A bundle of tools he had flung on his back,

Clustering, Support, and an Access Control pack.

He looked at my system and said what I need

Is MultiSite, to protect my data feed.

No single point of failure, and if I get stuck,

There’s constant support and no need to back up

And if I still feel I want to learn more

Then there’s plenty of webinars to sign up for.

On branching and merging, Subversion admin,

A beginner’s class and some features hidden.

He told me all this while he completed his work,

He repaired my system then turned with a jerk

And laying a finger on the side of his nose

Gave me a nod, and up the chimney he rose.

I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,

“Merry Christmas from WANdisco, and to all a good night!”

Happy holidays everyone!
