3000 community with a sense of humor

Even along the dire and troubling trail of HP 3000 transition, we can find those who wink at the trouble and muster along with a smile.

Out in the Hawaiian islands for a elite conference, OpenMPE chair Birket Foster sent us this photo, with a statement:

"Who knows what the future will bring, but I knew you would like this in the 'Image Bank:' "

And over at the GREBs Lab, where the playful Advant crew wants to unlock the horsepower of the latest HP 3000 models with its SSEDIT code, we got this message from "Captain Grebs;"

"One of the more poetic HP 3000 users sent this to us. Thought you might get a kick out of it. It's based on the theme from Underdog:"

When licensed resellers are still here
To prey on those still needing '3000 gear
whose complaints fall on HP's unresponsive ear
The cry goes up both far and near
For Captain GREB! Captain GREB!

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder
Easing the pain of HP's blunder
