The Night Before Mini-ITXmas
December 24, 2004

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
A quiet Mini-ITX, a near-silent mouse
The LCD monitor, crisp, bright and clear
Flick'd with text I was typing, wire-less through the air.

I lit up my Firefox, and with a quick snap
The glow of my monitor stopped my brief nap.
My browser was pointed with the utmost of grace,
To a site on the web; I frequent the place.

'Tis an online store with slim stylish cases,
Neat touch screen LCD's, cool links to far places.
About a new case, I've left notes for St. Nick
This year perhaps pleading prose did the trick.

I care not what he brings, to be safe, who knows?
I'll list them all carefully, now here it goes...
A Hush, a Tranquil, a Hoojum, an Opus,
A Travla, a Morex (Cubid or Venus).

One to the office, and one to the hall.
One a fileserver, the other firewall,
I can live with whatever the Old Elf decides,
But must have a slim DVD burner inside!

I'll need some RAM too, and a fast new hard drive.
Don't want Windows Nick! - what can Linus provide?
To all you loyal readers, I'd like to say this.
Thanks for support, business, and a Merry Christmas!

With thanks to William, and apologies to Henry Livingston Jr...
