Which is funnier?

"Those of you who may have inadvertantly stumbled into Bootnotes looking for world-class coverage of Google's Android"

Or Carla Bruni, undeterred burglar.

I think she got a bum deal.

The BBC should stop arsing about, get to the bottom of the problem and we can all put it behind us.

Analysis

I'm guessing the article concerned CB's behaviour during sessions with her shrink: - "No couch potato - why Carla Bruni does analysis standing up"

Ob. offering:- Following her sensational vist to a town in Northern England the following title was accidentally truncated: - "Exciting views of Carla Bruni Scunthorpe trip"

Now I'm stuck for choice between Paris and another icon. I say "sod Paris.." No, wait...

truncation is hilarious

If I have enough tabs open on Firefox while I'm checking my web site stats, the tabs say 'Google Anal'.

The programme guide on my digibox truncates as well - there was a show on once called "I Own Britain's Best Ho'

On the BBC World service

there is a programme called "Analysis" which, due to it's short duration, appears in abridged form on the Virgin electronic programme guide.

"...when RSS feeds go bad."

So this little gag's all down to RSS-banditry then?

Given that it turns out to be cumin and orange, I suppose it is unusual for one of Heston's!

Mr

Reminds me of the servers in my last job.

Yonks back, they didn't have a tcp/ip network but statically configured bridged oslan, so to allow travelling staff to access their server offsite, the local servers would be preconfigured with a bunch of login-id's that did nothing but connect them to their server.

One server was called 'arsenic' and the finger information set to "remote login to arsenic" - however, the finger command truncated that - you'd often login to the server, do a 'finger' and see many people logged in doing remote login to arse.

Chortling thanks

...for the "taking her up the OXO Tower" line!

A new one on me, but rest assured it's now been filed away in my lexicon of filthy euphemisms.. ;-)
