Of course, mine comes first. This is the london version, where i spent 5 months:

Early Klingon Poetry:
Wustl, Wustl, ERR RIP MIT BOOT, BIND Wustl 
One day, i received this in the mail:
>
>What is the translation of Early Klingon Poetry?
So i offer an explanation:

When you are good enough to put enter your initials on a pinball machine, you get three letters. I chose "DIK".

There is a German poem,
"April, April, du weiss nicht was der will"
=
"April, April, you don't know what you want"
It's a well known idiom in the circles of meteorologists, schoolchildren, and men. I had a German teacher who mumbled it incessantly, So it's rhythm is burned into my brain.

My version came to me whilst setting up our internet connection.
Wustl Washington University at St. Louis. big time ftp warehouse for internet software.
ERR Typical response from the use of internet software (ftp, telnet, www)
RIP Routing Information Protocol. "Which train should i take?"
MIT Some school. They think they're rocket scientists. Lots of software for launching rockets and Linux.
BOOT Actually, BOOTP which is a protocol to get Swiss NCD XTerminals to download their software.
BIND The wonder of the internet is that packets can actually find their way to anyplace. My first head-banging attempt here ended when i found out that our Internet Provider would do it for us. All i had to do was mail him my /etc/hosts file. Sigh, BIND must be revisited soon.
