:   'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Net,

:   There were hacker's a surfing. Nerds? Yeah, you bet.

:   The e-mails were stacked by the modem with care,

:   In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

:

:   The newbies were nestled all snug by their screens,

:   While visions of Java danced in their dreams.

:   My wife on the sofa and me with a snack,

:   We just settled down at my rig (it's a Mac).

:

:   When out in the Web there arose such a clatter,

:   I jumped to the site to see what was the matter.

:   To a new page my Mac flew like a flash,

:   Then made a slight gurgle. It started to crash!!

:

:   I gasped at the thought and started to grouse,

:   Then turned my head sideways and clicked on my mouse.

:   When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

:   My Mac jumped to a page that wasn't quite clear.

:

:   When the image resolved, so bright and so quick,

:   I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick!

:   More rapid than mainframes, more graphics they came,

:   Then Nick glanced toward my screen, my Mac called them by name;

:

:   "Now Compaq! Now Acer!", my speaker did reel;

:   "On Apple! On Gateway!" Santa started to squeal!

:   "Jump onto the circuits! And into the chip!

:   Now speed it up! Speed it up! Make this thing hip!"

:

:   The screen gave a flicker, he was into my "Ram",

:   Then into my room rose a full hologram!

:   He was dressed in all red, from his head to his shoes,

:   Which were black (the white socks he really should lose).

:

:   He pulled out some discs he had stored in his backpack.

:   Santa looked like a dude who was rarin' to hack!

:   His eyes, how they twinkled! His glasses, how techno!

:   This ain't the same Santa that I used to know!

:

:   With a wink of his eye and a nod of his head,

:   Santa soon let me know I had nothing to dread.

:   He spoke not a word, gave my Mac a quick poke,

:   And accessed my C drive with only a stroke.

:

:   He defragged my hard drive, and added a "Dimm",

:   Then threw in some cool games, just on a whim!

:   He worked without noise, his fingers they flew!

:   He distorted some pictures with Kai's Power Goo!

:

:   He updated Office, Excel and Quicken,

:   Then added a screensaver with a red clucking chicken!

:   My eyes widened a bit, my mouth stood agape,

:   As he added the latest version of Netscape.

:

:   The drive gave a whirl, as if it were pleased,

:   St. Nick coyly smiled, the computer appeased.

:   Then placing his finger on the bridge of his nose,

:   Santa turned into nothing but ones and zeros!

:

:   He flew back into my screen and through my uplink,

:   Back into the net with barely a blink.

:   But I heard his sweet voice as he flew from my sight,

: "Happy surfing to all, and to all a good byte!"
