BOFH: Remote access malarkey

Conor
Alert

but I wanna know...

what the user was doing on his machine that was so important to hide!

BOFH: The admin gene

The Gene

I have the gene, unfortunately I'm lazy, let me explain:

Me: I think that harddrive is getting old, I think it's going to start failing anytime now.

[does nothing]

[2 days later, drive fails]

Apparently, shipping a drive off to a data recovery center is "easier" than doing a backup.

Paris: because she KNOWS she's got it... well, something at least.

BOFH: The all-clicking, all-whirring Roboboss

Radio Reception

Do people still use AM Radio? ;-)

Aside from that, I want the whole back-story that explains how Simon managed to convince the Boss that sticking a paperclip in the power outlet would help his reception.

PH because ... ok, the "sticking it in" joke is way too obvious...

BOFH: Shafting the consultants over the new layout

Pole

Nothing will stop until the pole is installed! I love it, best 'accident' yet!

Paris: because she loves pole too!

BOFH: The Boss gets Grandpa Simpson syndrome

Conor
Paris Hilton

That reminds me of the time...

...actually, I'm smart enough to stop before I go to for and get hit with the cattle prod.

In any event, I think that we're all the 'Boss' in this story in some way, if we weren't, we probably wouldn't be the type reading The Reg!

Paris, because like the boss, nobody cares what she says!

BOFH: PFY's mum pays a visit

Conor

Brilliant!

One of the best installments yet! It's nice to finally find out where PFY gets it from.

PH because she gets it from everyone.

BOFH: The Silence of the Servers

Conor

Perfect.

Arguably the best story I've read in a long while.

PH because she's the best at some things too.
