G.K. is a Techno Geek!

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I know that I am an adorable and regal-looking chow.  But, did you know that beneath all of my handsome appeal there is a very brilliant techie?  I don’t know how it happened, but I suppose I was just born this way.  Anyway, I’ve been helping to iron out little technology issues around the farm and I thought it would be a good idea to inspect the server room for any crossed wires, so to speak.

This is the door to the server room and it needs to be kept closed.  The AC is on to keep the room cool because of all the sensitive equipment in there.

I'll close it up now and post this sign.  Only qualified techies should be poking around in here.

Onto the generator transfer switch.  This is a very important area in case we loose power.

  • Good Morning G.K.

    If you want to live a long happy life at the farm I suggest you never touch anything in the Server Room. I don't think Mommy Martha would be too happy if you started to chew some wires and flick some switches. Take it from me, I chewed the phone cord under mom's desk once and boy was I in trouble. If you feel the need to chew try one of those fancy wood legs on Martha's chairs they look yummy.

    F & S mom stopped by PetSmart yesterday looking for a new Frenchie jacket for me and not a thing on the Martha Stewart Collection - what's up with that?

    It's another beautiful day here in South Jersey, dad is still recovering from jet lag so I think I'll be spending the day out on the chase lounge watching the birds - life is good :)

  • I always knew how smart you were. I am so glad you are there to help Martha with these very important tasks that must be done to keep the farm running smoothly. Between you, Francesca and Sharkey I think things are pretty well under control there.
    Have fun...............

  • Oh GK you are getting so handsome you will soon be a big star, and you are such a good boy.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    And good morning to you too GK. I don’t know about all those wires and what a server is, but I do know one thing; look but don’t touch. If I were you GK I would stay away from that “room” unless I was well brushed. You know how fur balls shed. Wouldn’t want any of that “fur” in the fans which keeps the equipment cool. Daddy has to clean his computer often because I like to lay in his room where the computer is. It doesn’t take too long; just open the case and blow a little air in. It’s amazing how much gets in there. See you later GK; nap time now.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi GK: Zoe is right! Don't touch things is that room. It looks dangerous to me, interesting, but still dangerous. Did you give Francesca and Sharkey the day off? Hopefully they are taking nice long naps in the shade.

    Zoe - Did your parents have fun in Italy? My momma said they have great food there and the art is pretty. What is art anyway? Oh well.......

    I get to go to the Deluxe Boarding Kennel for a day. Daddy has an appointment with the heart doctor. Well, it's time for me to get ready for the deluxe kennel. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • That's a pretty impressive I.T. Room GK. Just a few more bells and whistles and it may rival the CTU offices. Did you have to do a paw-scan to enter?

    It takes so much to run Mommy M's farm, good thing you, Francesca & Sharkey are so skilled, talented, and up to the task.

    Gracyn Erwin, have fun at the Deluxe Boarding Kennel and hope everything goes well for your daddy at the heart doctor. :smile:

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    G.K. you are certainly talented and such a geek. You have your paws on the hub of the household. It is really nice now that you are getting bigger and more responsible, so the girls get some help as Mama Martha's farm is a big job , but someone has to do it. You three are the best for the job. Great work!!!!
    Gracyn Erwin have fun at the "spa" kennel for the day.
    Also, Zoe, has Mom started baking you any Italian biscuits or maybe biscotti yet?
    Have a great Wednesday. Also, did anyone ever hear from Shoeboy and I just missed it? I hope he is o.k.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hi G.K., Not only are you a handsome lad, but you are also very brilliant! For such a young fellow, you have learned an awful lot of great things. I'm sure part of the reason you have learned so much is that you are part of a brilliant household and you learn something new everyday. Hope you are enjoying the nice weather there. We are having lots of cold rain and I am looking forward to a sunny day so I can take my Mom for a nice long walk again. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hi Basil
    And NO - mom has not made me a dog treat since she's been back. I'm stuck with treats from a box. I think she is very busy getting caught up at the office so I'll cut her some slack.

    Have not heard from Shoeboy in ages. Yo Shoeboy are you out there.

    Gracyn I hope your Daddy makes out ok - keep us posted.
