Action! Adventure! and.. um.. Tech…

Has anyone read “Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carrol? Well, Here’s my version –

CoderWocky
Or on hunting the net for viruses

‘Twas Idle, with ninety nine percent
Of the processor going bit less
All blank were the memories
With protection applied.

“Beware the Bots, My son!
The code that duplicates, the keywords untrue!
Beware the page that fakes, and shun
The spammers that prowl!”

He took his app in memory;
Long time the IP’s he searched-
So rested he by a ‘nothers home page
And he built him an update.

And, as in execution he stood,
The malicious code, with bytes of disdain,
Loaded itself onto his own page,
And tempted as it loaded!

Zero! One! Zero! One! The packets exchanged
The app went beep-beep!
He left it quarantined, and with its source,
He went requesting back.

“And hast thou stopped the spread?
Come to my arms, my binary boy!
O Gigabyte day! TCP be praised!”
He compiled his joy.

‘Twas Idle, with ninety nine percent
Of the processor going bit less
All blank were the memories
With protection applied.

    Twas squalig for the vapid prose
    To mingle with the Bard
    All bongsy was the techie verse
    That mangulates the word
    Beware the Jabberwock my son
    The comments bite and scratch
    Beware the Watcher Bird and run
    From spurious Brandy-clutch
    He brought his processor up front
    Long time the coded bytes he sought
    But waited whilst the Crumbum set
    And waited while it thought
    But as he wandered in his mind
    Jabberwock with fiery eyes
    Sprang from the twisted fog
    And singing as it sprang
    Tra la, tra la, and tri li li
    Its laser sythe went through his face
    He let it down, then with his crown
    He slithered back to base
    So watch that shit The Watchbird cried
    Don’t mess with master’s verse
    The fruglish spang that scrunches spam
    Will brantoform a curse
    Twas squalig for the vapid prose
    To mingle with the bard
    All bongsy were the techie verse
    That mangulates the word
