Two-thousand sixteen marked the sixth consecutive year of the Mozy Frightful Computer Haiku Contest. This year’s haiku poets claimed $200, $50 and $25 gift cards for their evocative efforts. As in years past, it was a challenge to select the winners from all of your most excellent submissions. Here are our winners:
3rd place and a $25 gift card to Denisha Parker Moore:
Virus goblins in
the night came to cause big fright.
Mozy make it right!
2nd place and a $50 gift card to spaceJASE:
Poor souls lost or burned
Mozy works the graveyard shift
Undead files return
1st place and a $200 gift card to Joel Hiller:
In the darkened lab
Mozy brings the dead files back
“It’s alive!” I shriek
Congratulations to our winners (though if you back up with Mozy, you already know that you’re a winner)! Winning poets, please email us at email@example.com to claim your gift card. Be sure to include your name and snail mail address.
If you didn’t win, there is always next year. In the meantime, limit your sugar intake and be sure that you are always safeguarding your files with the latest Mozy backup software.
