Absent without leave
Our beloved BOFH appears to have gone AWOL.
Can we expect a new story any time soon? There's been nothing since November and I'm getting withdrawal symptoms!
Re: Absent without leave
There's no ban on BOFH. We're looking forward to Simon's next piece as much as you are! But his output is no longer as regular as it used to be.
Jonesing for BOFH
Guys, over 2 and a half months since the last? And only 14 all of last year? Do we need to incentivize the man? Where shall I send the crisps and lagers? Has the PFY finally gone and had the man committed?
Re: Jonesing for BOFH
What kind of disgusting pervert are you? You don't incentivise people with kindness and gifts! You use violence, blackmail and threats.
All the Register need to do is threaten to publish his address in place of his next piece, should it fail to turn up by deadline. Then legions of his fans can storm round there, and give him a gentle introduction to high voltage testicles, with a cattle-prodding he'll never forget, and he'll soon get back to writing for you.

Didn't you lot get the memo?
The BOFH series was old, tired & derivative of itself before it left Usenet.
Re: Didn't you lot get the memo?
I'm guessing that's why he only bothers writing a few every year now, rather than one a week. There's only so many users and bosses you can murder... When it comes to humour on El Reg, I give my allegiance to Verity.
BOFH reminds me of a TV detective show called 'Midsummer Murders'. It's set in this idyllic English village, population probably under 1,000, and yet for goodness-knows how many series they've had several murders per week. By now, the entire population has either been murdered, or been given life in prison, several times over. You'd have though that house-prices would collapse, and no-one would move there, given the 100% chance of you being killed, murdering someone, or both...
Maybe he's gone to KiwiFoo again... or worse, the PFY has successfully bumped him off - but then again it takes more than death to stop our BoFH.
Though I could swear we had one recently posted for this month - or did I hallucinate it as it seems to have gone walkies.
