About a month ago, I had lunch with 2 friends, and got this bill. I should have made it into a rite then, but you know how it is.

Note the 5th line item.

I'm not going to say who exactly had that item, but the person who did reports it was delicious and refreshing!

Bin Cokin

Osama bin Laden tried to buy a massive amount of cocaine, spike it with poison and sell it in the United States hoping to kill thousands, according to reports. The plot failed when Colombian drug lords decided it would be bad for business if they got involved in the deal.

Kate. Pure as poo.

Kate writes:

This is what you learn while being a loser and watching too much TV...

I know that Kate is derived from Katherine and traditionally has been known to mean 'pure of heart'. Which is what I am. But I learnt this weekend that 'pure' used to mean something entirely different in medieval times.

Purification was and still is part of the tanning process. 'Pure' used to mean 'dog poo'. Literally. I laughed so hard, I almost fell off the couch.

So now I'm no longer pure of heart, I'm just full of sh!t. Ironic, innit?

When good sysadmins go bad

The following message comes from our local Jabber administrator. We currently have a fund set up for his shrink sessions.

Hey folks,

As usual, winter brings to the area of Randpark Ridge regular, lengthy power failures. Since we still haven't had the opportunity to sort out our big UPS and generator, we're all holding hands and scuffling along the carpets in nylon socks with the jabber server to keep it running.

This was going quite well until we started attracting baloons and housepets. All I can say is thank heavens I can touch type, and that I turned my head to the side at the last minute - I can hear the ocean.

Chances are our socks, or the carpets, or the SPCA's patience will wear out eventually. It is for this reason that, as I type this message, I have another window open with Charles 'Xhola' L., arranging for our server to take up residence on another machine in the IS hosting area in Roos-bonk.

He-man relied on the power of Greyskull; Unfortunately we're stuck with Eskom.

Have a great week.

Buttons. Sew what?

I took the bull by the horns and sewed on 4 buttons that were missing on my shirts, the other night. Tedious, but not impossible.

Picture it - there I was, in bathrobe, watching TV, sewing. I felt like my mom.

The hivemind outdoes itself

Those were the old days. When we still had to post to the 'mind by fax, after walking sixteen miles in the snow to the nearest fax machine - barefoot.

That's nothing! You had faxes! WE had to evade government censors in the dead of night under sniper fire to deliver punch cards to a dead letterbox, where a secretive man disguised as God with blue hair carrying an avocado would retrieve it and hack it into the systems of an even more secretive illuminati front called the Future Foundation!

Sniper fire with just bullets? BLOODY LUXURY! We used to dreeeeeeeeeeeam of sniper fire. In my day, we had to whistle down a length of wet broken string. When it transpired that the message didn't arrive, we used to have to tunnel across a minefield wearing only underwear made from barbed wire. Our message, on soggy parchment carried you-don't-want-to-know-where, would decompose if we didn't make it in time, and the stench would permeate our livers. When finally someone did make it across with a valid-checksummed datagram, the blue-haired god would beat us with a shovel and send us back from whence we came!

Tunneling across minefield with parchment? We used to DREEEEEEEAM of tunneling across minefields with soggy parchment lodged in our rectums. In my day we used to use Windows 95.

Warren updates Jabber, again

Hello Possums, from the bustling metropolis of Bloemfontein...

We (as in the Royal We(ooweeeoooweee)) would like to apologise for the server downtime over the weekend.... We'd also like to apologise for the owner of a red Uno registration GHB108GP for what the royal Corgies did to your upholstery. They're terribly well trained, and no doubt decided it would be less offensive than soiling a public lawn. If you're dubious regarding this explanation, let me assure you my footprints are only present due to my selfless efforts to extract my larger Corgie, Champagne 'Poo-poo' Rimrock of Luciaan. Too late I fear... Though I'm sure you fear more.

Uhm.. Where was I? Kinda lost my train of thought. Right... Apologies for the downtime. I actually saw the server was down, though I just assumed the problem was infact being caused by some naught GPRS setting. Silly me. Err. Us.

Roooooooll over Champers! YES GOOD LAD!! Now SIT. Staaaaaaay.... Now clench boy, clench - that's a good poochie. *BOOM* Oh dear god CHAMPERS - talk to me boy.. NOOOOOOOOOOO WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY CRUEL UNIVERSE WHYYYYYYYY?!??!??!?!

Flatulent Corgies - More fun than Margaret Thatcher on crack.

Holy JIT

[14:28:53] *** Jabber@Obs is Offline
[14:27:22] Hey all..

Ok, so the Jabber ICQ Transport (or JIT) is due for an upgrade, from 1.1.0 to 1.6.0.... It's compiling as we speak, but please be aware that you will have to re-login to this transport for the same reason you need to buy a new horse when Ol' Stinky Jr. takes a dirtnap - you just can't rely on a dead horse for transport. It's bound to get you in trouble for being late. Maybe even fired. I know that's happened at least twice in my family's history, which is why I had to work in a plush penguin factory when I was just five to feed my lesbian nazi eskimo brother, Ft-nuknuk. Grandma always told dad to get a new horse, but NOOOOOO, he just kept on rindin' Ol' Stinky Senior. He was light on gas he said. Or rather, BIG on gas, but light on hay.

But, I digress.
