The 12 Days of Unix

On the twelfth day I left it, my Unix gave to me:
    Twelve boards a-blowing;
    Eleven chips a-smoking;
    Ten ports a-jamming;
    Nine floppies frying;
    Eight gettys dying;
    Seven blown partitions;
    Six bad controllers;
    Five core dumps;
    Four bad blocks;
    Three heads crashed;
    Two faulty tapes;
    And a burnt-out V.D.T.

… and many other holiday textfiles.
