back to article BOFH: Dodging the auditors

"Oops," the PFY says, looking away from his screen guiltily. "What?" "I think I've just dropped the indexes from the financials database." "Ok," I say.

    So Simon does have a heart. No doubt next week's episode will involve a master plan to acquire some of the PFY's "hard earned cash"...

    If only they knew what we might know, they would maybe know more than they need to know to know and would be bound to laugh at the shenanigans of supposed full grown men, Brian.

    This one was simply brilliant

    This is one of the best I've read since the BOFH was running a grep for herpies on against the HR system. They are always good tho!

    Must be all the lagers - they say it "matures" with time ;)

    Don't you know Simon took a kickback from Playboy for the action they got from his engineering of the Enron affair?

    No heart really...

    If the PFY got sacked, then think of the difficulties he would have in finding a new one adn getting him trained up properly.
