ITIL is not a Standards but a Best practice

Think I would know that....

This is the third occurrence.

I'm raising a problem record for this now.

someone had better sort out the priority pdq. or we will have an infestation.

That's for the technical people to work out. It depends on the output from RCA.

Chaps,

I think you've gotta have a little fun on these boards. Ok this is our profession, but man it can be dry if you don't spice it up. For example only you two, so far, actually seem to pick up on when I'm doing the serious-but-daft thing, and that makes it even funnier for me.

Most questions being asked here can be answered with the 'how longs a piece of string response?', but copying and pasting that isn't particularly exciting.

So when people ask lazy/repeat/just plain daft questions I personally can't resist reply with something very dry and very stupid.

And if you can't think of a daft response then you should refer them to The 'Sixth Book' and let them spend a couple of weeks searching on Amazon for it.

UJ

Hey, I am having fun with it. It is a whole lot more enjoyable than ripping into the idjit.....which was my usual response

The alternate title for the Sixth book is

Servicing Service Anomalys

or

In Development In Operations Terms Specifically


One is backwards.. one is an abbreviation

Yes, very good, I'd go with either of those. I think the more incoprehensible the title the better!

I'd also like to recommend a primary process for this book called Intelligence Management.

Best. Thread. Ever.

Although it does make you wonder if ITIL humour doesn't quite work? After all, who's to deem whether it's funny or not? Is there a standard?

... there shall be no funny standard just a "best practice" guidance around what is to be considered funny and what is not.

It will take many revisions to iron out this "best practice" on what is funny and what is not and by the end of it all I don't think anyone will be laughing.

(This is a good thread).

I'm a red badge in being funny but I still can't get anyone to laugh at my jokes.

Maybe you did not do so well in the Delivery modules?

As a God of Change Management ( Rolling Eyes ), I always have a back out plan - dropping my pants usually works.

But only once in any specific organisation...

Surely "Exit... stage left" comes from Hanna Barbera's Snagglepuss character?? Also find of saying "Heavens to Murgatroid!!"




Do I win a copy of the book? I assume it's leatherbound with gold leaf edges...? Laughing
