    High class performance

    It's great to see the BOFH back to his highest standard. This deserves to be a classic.

    "And the game of office chess begins." Fantastic!

    and is it only exit signs? possibly a field meter might be a wise investment for the pfy....

    used to use an old am/fm pocket radio to trace wiring years back as a tech before drilling walls to place new cabling.... : ]
