Tales From the Cafe

We had to install a new router for the free wi-fi at the cafe. If you've ever been in a commercial bakery or kitchen, you know how many times a day surfaces get dirty and then wiped clean and how often tools get dropped, misued or abused. Unfortunately computer equipment sitting in the kitchen is no different. Thus our need for a new box. Well, that and the planned obsolescence of any electronic equipment.

At least this box came with pretty blinking blue lights. Which of course gave Jon just the opportunity he had been waiting for to put up this sign. Apparently it has a
rich and storied history.

ACHTUNG!

Alles touristen und non-technischen looken peepers!
Das computermachine ist nicht fuer gefingerpoken und mittengrabben. Oderwise ist easy schnappen der springenwerk, blowenfusen und poppencorken mit spitzensparken.

Ist nicht fuer gewerken bei das dumpkopfen.
Das rubbernecken sichtseeren keepen das cotten-pickenen hans in das pockets, relaxen und watchen das blinkenlichten.
