A word

There has to be a word to describe the process of repeatedly typing in your old password, for 72 hours after the work system has made you update it.

Turn right at Great Britain come to a soggy, wet bit of planet called Holland...

The story that copper wire is an invention of two Hollanders fighting over a found cent is absolutely true.

Mailscanner Classified as "Dumb As Shit"

So. All those weird things I've posted are what I see in my work inbox all day long. Simply because the posters on the lists that I happen to be on, decide, every now and then, to use a naughty word.

What the fuck the point of this mailscanner is, god alone knows.

Is to to save bandwidth? Surely not - for the entire fucking message has to be downloaded by the work Exchange server before it can be scanned.

Is it to hide my fucking sensitive eyes from seeing the word? Again, surely not. After all, the mailscanner tells me about the blocked mail, and then very helpfully spells out the word and all its variations right at me...

And not once (let me repeat: not once) has it ever stopped a legitimate message. Never. Nada. Zero times. If just once I had seen it tell me that it had stopped an email from 'viagrashop@hotmail.com', I would have felt that just maybe, MailScanner has a place in this world.

It does not.

Cunts.

It'll come back to haunt you

[Jonathan] you're going to hell for that.

[Rory] that's ok. i'll run the place after 1 week. anyway, the rites is much more pretty, and button free.

[Rory] look, during those heady days of 1996, we were all a little crazy, what with us sniffing HTML all the time, and mainlining tables. it was madness. but good madness. and who can forget the netscape.
