When My Little Cloud Died: The Internet IT Fable of the CloudMaster

I was well on my way to the best day in my life.

Traffic was up. Pages per visitor was a dotted line of fact.

And in the middle of a self-promoting tweet, I must’ve overheated my cloud.

Cause that dip you see, is not from natural causes. It was death by IT.

In the middle of the working day,

My hype out ran my Google Analytics and the gods of DDoS came to play, on me.

Was it too many widgets, one plug-in gone south?

A leak in my computing cycle managment?

What the CloudMaster said, while scratching his head, was…

“We’re working on it.”

Note about fables from wikipedia: A fable is a succinct story, in prose or verse, that features animals, plants, inanimate objects, or forces of nature which are anthropomorphized (given human qualities), and that illustrates a moral lesson (a “moral”), which may at the end be expressed explicitly in a pithy maxim.
