Ah well they host their servers at 1&1 which says it all really. Not the cleanest of places when it comes to hosting.

Whilst working at a company in 2001 we had a total power failure to the building. Quite correctly, the UPS maintained the integrity of the server room and the backup generator started up as commanded.
Upon contacting the power company we were told it would be down for at least an hour. Our building services guy said we had fuel for the generator for 48 hours. Two hours later the generator dies.
Turns out the fuel gauge was stuck on full and the tank was close to empty. Dipsticks are your friend.
My wedding ring is Titanium and at the time of purchase, I had the choice of 99.99 pure Titanium or a Titanium Alloy.
I picked the pure Titanium as it is softer than the alloy and shouldn't be a problem for emergency services if I get into a situation requiring it's removal. It's certainly too small to go on my dick so the situation in the story shouldn't ever happen.
Many years ago I used to take a briefcase to work, partly because it was a birthday present from my parents and partly because it really was useful to carry my lunch and magazines to read. I also had quite a craving for cream cheese that comes in toothpaste style tubes and TUC biscuits.
One day I was rushing to get away from work to go to the pub only to find that a couple of my colleagues had squeezed cream cheese onto the handle of the briefcase and place the handle back down flat so you could not see the cheese. You can image the mess when I grabbed the handle to have cheese squeezing out between my fingers.
I of course arrived late to the pub and to much smirking and laughter from people around me. I know who you are even if at the time I did not acknowledge that I had been pranked.
