Errr...what happened to Episode 4?
"So what I'd like to know," the Boss seethes, "is what the hell took you so long?" "What do you mean 'so long'?" the PFY asks, sounding a little hurt. "You left here FIVE HOURS AGO to pick up a replacement toner cartridge!" "Yeah but..." "TWO OF YOU! IN MY CAR!" "You offered it!" I add. "But in any case we needed to be …
Two RTAs in one episode - and the Boss is still dimwitted enough to believe they'll restore the original CCTV footage of him in the office...
But surely it doesn't take this long to write an episode? Last year there were 40 episodes - we're 1/3 of the way through 2009 and we've only had 4-5 - at this rate there'll be less than 15 episodes by the end of the year :(
Simon, Simon, where have you been? The world needs public service announcements like this one more often:
"Here. The car stops, then backs up for 6 metres, forward for 6.5 metres, back 7 metres and then continues on it's way."
"Oh, that," the PFY says. "We noticed our Symantec reseller walking along the footpath."
"It was a gimme," I say. "We had to take it!"
Such a sweet and happy way to end my day. Thanks!
What you mean:
"What do you know about social networking?" the Boss murmurs quietly one morning, as I'm putting the finishing touches on my espresso"
Mines the one with the complete set in the pocket....
Mind you, it does depend where you link to BOFH from...
In internet time we've loyal BOFH readers waited too long b/w posts. That said, the quality in this post is classic BOFH behavior. If only I could get away w/ pranks at this level. Mine are more mundane like re-arranging things at my Mom-in-law's to see how long it takes her to notice. Just doing my part to keep her from getting Alzheimer's.
Loved it Simon, good quality stuff there. Not to mention a shot at Symantec and anyone who would inflict Lotus Notes on anyone. Gotta love it. Now if we could just get the Symantec board and every Notes reseller and the boss all rounded up and "accidentally" locked inside a shipping container together, then some serious fun could be had. I was going to add OS/2 zealots in there, but that would have been to cruel a thing to do, even to Notes resellers.
Been using the damn things for over 5 years now. Lotus Is like any other email client / PIM ..... in mentally retarded mode. Everything is formated for the vile Big Blue Offspring can handle it.
Symantec antivirus is a slow, memory hogging piece of ......
Running them down is just a way to put their salesman out of their misery.
Way to go BOFH !
Great set of comments this time. For a while there, BOFH commenters got stuck in a rut of always saying "back to top form, Simon", and then of course there has been that recent run of "why so long between episodes", but now the comments are spot on, just like in the good old days when comments on BOFH were first enabled (if you weren't commenting on BOFH back then, then you're not a true fan).
'Scuse me, I need to lie down.
Now you've reminded me of the title of Episode 4, I do remember reading it...
I can't help but wonder what the Boss will do if/when he eventually realises how far he's been strung up in his e-Dating (or should that be iDating nowadays?)
But then again, given the number of traps that have been set for the boss to date, it won't be long before the company will have to appoint his successor...
I remember encountering a computer about a year ago that had Norton GoBack and Norton 360 installed. The NSA couldn't crack it. GoBack used some wonky propriatary partition type, and once you got it running, it would just completely hardlock the second Norton 360 started. Bitlocker doesn't have shit on Symentec.
Given that our CEO is about to afflict us with the latest version of Lotus Notes (and that we're currently using a version which has had not updates available since about 2002), can we arrange further targetting? Lotus Notes or our CEO, don't mind which... ;)
Paris, cos not even SHE is dumb enough to think Lotus Notes is worth the investment!
