back to article BOFH: Server room secret panels

“It's a little... uh... large, isn't it?” one of our beancounters says as he scans the computer room in the new building during a site visit. “Optical illusion,” the PFY counters. “Machine rooms always look oversized when there's no kit in them. Take my word for it, once we install the racks and the cable trays the place will …

Magical Ominous Menace, Simon. :-) A Class Act for any BOFH worth their weight in Bean Counters.

Disappointing...

Disappointing that the BOFH and PFY paid for the work out of their own pockets. Isn't that what creative accountancy is all about? Those electrical tool kits don't really cost £2,000 a pop, you know...

@ Steve

Same comment keeps popping up everywhere. Not sure why, usually titled "@ Tim".

Probably some running joke that us mere mortals aren't part of.

this one's pretty self-explanatory

Good one! Question is, when's the PFY getting Simon back for the job reference?

@Steve RE: AC1

I think the poor man was trying to comment on a different thread and ended up here for some weird reason.

Or maybe he also "self-medicated" a bit.

@Steve RE: AC1

If you look at the title of the second post and the 1 minute time-difference, it seems as though these the two posts got siamese-twinned.

When does the PFY's mum appear agin?

Nice one, but I miss the weekly post. Oh man I miss it.

So when does the PFY's mum come to talk to Simon about his comments about her son, as she runs the canteen in the company he was applying to? And everybody knows that the canteen lady knows everything thats going on...

Also what happened to the batcave and pole? Or is this in the new room?

Self sacrifice?

BOFH self sacrifice?

That's what lusers are for! (sacrifice, I mean).

I'm sure there is an untold story, because he would never do such a thing...

What are you talking about? Next thing you'll talk about variably sized rooms, I guess. Now quit the cold medication already, and surrender to the Mighty Moderatrix Of Hell.

Re: Question is, when's the PFY getting Simon back for the job reference?

I was wondering the same thing myself. The last few BOFHs have been back on form, so maybe fortnightly updates give Simon the time to craft his best work. Which is perhaps a little suprising given how little else there is to do in the Waikato.

Re: Everyone

It's not as if the BOFH has been done by weekly update for at least the last few years: it's always been about 42-45 stories for each 52 weeks.

One chain is 22 yards, or just over 20m. I know he was thinking on his feet, but it's not like the BOFH to get that sort of thing wrong...

Maybe he's been drinking.
