What can I say,
That certainly brightened up a rainy Friday lunchtime.
“I could have been killed!” the Boss whimpers, rubbing a couple of prominent bruises. “I think that’s a little far-fetched,” the PFY sniffs. “What was it going to do, 360-degree-camera you to death?” “It had a circular saw in its hands!!” “Really? It had hands!?” “Well, its claw then!” “IT’S GOT A CLAW!?” “WHATEVER THE …
Did you not realize who/what the robot geeks would use to test the robots that come back on? Once the first augmented robot came back, you can rest assured that we robot geeks would use the nearest source of red shirted robot fodder, whose demise/medical absence would not be a problem for the company.
There will _always_ be a 'friendly' rivalry between such people, much like there is between the Bastard and PFY. They may work together toward a common goal at times, but would never hesitate to lock the other in the tape safe along with the hazardous item of the day.
I suspect this will only end when the robot can no longer be sent back to the other side. Shipping companies don't pick up at demolished buildings.
New G15 mk1 keyboard please.... !!!!!
Brilliant... this is worthy of the early days....
Those geeks have to learn that while they may be clever they are dealing with a superior malevolent force with dark skills honed via the torturing of countless numbers of Lusers, Bean-Counters and Managers.. none of whom were able to bring down the Ultimate Power.
Let the wars commence!

A superior benevolent force with every dark skill has wars, history, Da Weezil. And with AI Cleared Memory is a Brave NeuReal Open World for Presentation with Future Populations/Virtual Plantations. ........ which can be Realised on Planet Earth.

Truly excellent. BOFH and PFY teaming up against a common enemy is sure to lead to diabolical schemes. The Boss, security, and other normal antagonists are sure to get hurt in the crossfire, which is much more fun than failing in an overmatched battle with the BOFH.
Raising a Friday beer to Simon.
Now that I've read the BoFH, I know it's safe to get my first cup of coffee for the day.
I kinda figured that Simon would have had the PFY open the crate while standing at a safe distance, though...
How long until a killer robot gets locked in the tape safe, and how many bean counters end up in there with it?
I'd just learned that the Stig was outed, which means he must be killed off (The Stig is dead, long live the Stig,) and I needed - clinically needed - some snarky UK-style humor to reenliven me. The Bastard provides! ^_^
Of course, by now, both sides will know that they cannot open the crates safely, because the other side will have programmed and rigged the robot to come out swinging. The roboticists will probably have learned their lesson about the petrol-powered chainsaw from this one, though, since it requires start-up time and makes noise. How long it is until one side or the other equips the robot with a nail-gun, I wonder?
Let the games commence! Hopefully with an absolute maximum of middle managers, executive managers, boardmembers, chairpersons, beancounters, executive officers, financial officers and other corporate malingerers (which definition can never include the hard-working members of technical or informational staff) caught in the crossfire as possible.
Definitely include a step-up transformer connected to the casing. Just in case the techs aren't wearing very thick rubber-soled shoes. Heck, turn the upper half into a tesla coil dome. Or buy a job lot of "next-gen" tasers and incorporate them into the design. With a suitably amplified potential difference.
EM pulse generator - fry all electrical equipment within a certain radius of the robot.
Fuel cell power plant - just make sure the H2 bottle is well protected.
GPS + flamethrower - as soon as it arrives it goes on the rampage, before the techs have a chance to get anywhere near it. Which also explains the icon I've chosen.
