Among the many items, releases, and gimcracks arriving at our office of late, the funniest one has to be from the folks working on the Windows Home Server account.
It came in the form of a childrens' picture book entitled, "Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House?" I kid you not. It's actually a tongue-in-cheek explanation of the purpose of a home server (an explanation for adults is here). And it did make everyone at J-Q.com take notice and chuckle. (Best line: "Offices are why big people get grumpy, [sic] and say bad words." No kidding.)
It's worth mentioning that I've also run across several people who have purchased HP's version of the Windows Home Server, dubbed the MediaSmart Server. Every one of them has been quite pleased with the experience so far.
So, snaps to the person who thought up the kid's board book idea. It's not likely to replace "The Lorax" in my daughter's library any time soon, but it's very amusing, and it did remind us how useful the Windows Home Server is…and make us write about it one more time.
