back to article BOFH: The revenge

>SQUEAK< ... "Impressive," our recent ex-new-Boss says nervously, edging towards the back of the room. "How did you... find us?" "Simple," the PFY says, entering from the door behind him, cattleprod in hand. "One of the laptops you took wasn't exactly what it looked like." "Bitlocker?" the ex-new-technician asks, halting …

  2. call me scruffy

    Justice has been done.

    As a wiseman once said, do unto others as the bloody ingrates would do unto you, had they only the wit to think of it first.

    Great to see Simon (T) succumbing to peer pressure..hehe.

    but it's so much more fulfilling to see him getting the upper hand..It's like a warm blanket:)

    It still does not seem enough...

    It all happened without the mildest discharge of the cattleprod.. It all seems like they still got off easy... maybe Simon and Steven are getting soft as they get older?

    Ahhhhhhh, that's the ticket!

    And as loyal fans look on with smiles of satisfaction, the BOFH proves that he's a BOFH and the PFY proves that he's no less. A brilliant piece of writing... and there's no doubt that Simon will always come out on top.

    You can't keep a good BOFH down.

    This'll show those who were doubting him in the last episode.

    The Force

    Last episode, there had been a disturbance in the Force; I am glad to see balance has been restored...

    PFY? WTF?

    I've been reading this (admittedly very funny) series for two whole years and STILL have no idea what PFY stands for, damnit.

    Perverse Freudian Youth? Pilfering Firestarting Yob? Psychotic Freeloading Yes-man?

    Someone PLEASE put me out of my misery......

    Consider it a good reason to go back and read the archives. You have a lot of very funny stuff to catch up on.

    Or it could stand for Pimple Faced Youth, IIRC.

    It stands for Pimply-Faced Youth.

    This was introduced before the BOFH in the Register, when Simon goes back to supervise his old job of Operator in a University. Is replacement is a Pimply Faced youth, whi thinks that he is there to help users. Within a few minutes, he reailses the error of his ways, and promptly orders the Simon out of the office. Shortly after that, the pair get a plum job in the business world, courtesy of the PFY's uncle, and the stories moved to The Register.

    Hmm, this could get interesting...

    John and Dave (especially Dave) are unlikely to take this lying down...

    factually accurate IT story on TV requires BoFH help ....

    could the powers that be get the Panorama production team to hire BoFH and team to manage their WiFi stories

    Retaliation served.

    Dang, I was hoping they'll dispose of Dave and John in a more gruesome way. Ah well. Exploding containers in Spain wouldn't be that bad. Either that or all the ammonia from the fertilizers would cause enough suffocation in an airtight container.

    BOFH takes Westminister

    Shame the BOFH, cant go to Westminister, to fix their current computing problems.

    Complaints from the mp's would go right down, after the first few examples....

    ditto complaints about the mp's from voters <grin>
