A major requirement!
I think we have missed one MAJOR requirement for a boffin. They must be over the age of 40. Boffinry requires experience in the field, preferably longer in the field than any student they are likely to encounter!
Who actually connects their TV/Media Server/PC to their network with Ethernet and Wifi? And even if you did why would system ever choose Wifi connection over the nice fast gigabit ethernet link?
That big red button...
I pressed it too :D
As far as I remember making Eurofighter carrier capable wasn't thought possible due the under-carriage. In any case it would still only be a fighter, not a fighter bomber or attack aircraft.
It was highly extreme porn
It was a six second video clip of a guy showing off his massively overclocked liquid nitrogen cooled gaming PC. Extreme nerd porn!
Why so long?
Come on Simon I was dying to know what was happening to the PFY and how the BOFH would get him back? Please don't make us wait so long for the next instalment.
Does this article say in Para 6 what I think it says? That if you go overseas the book you are reading on your Kindle could become unavailable because of regional rights restrictions?
So they are building an updated version of that classic game...
Yes, but this was not for re-entry but as protection from the solar wind. Since around the moon you are outside the earth's protective magnetosphere.

You really think that is how government procurement works? I pity you.....
No more need be said than <3
Surely the solution to all this is to place the passphrase on a disk inside a safe. You can't be forced to give up the combination to the safe under the 5th and you can't be expected to know a long pass phrase....
Yah for common sense!
Another reason I love our legal system (most of the time)
Could the odd behaviour of the OCZ be down to the internal RAID?
Long time coming but oh so worth it!
I was beginning to think something had happened to our beloved BOFH. Good to see he hasn't been downsized yet.
Halon Release Charges?
I just hope the BOFH and PFY remember to charge the company for the cleanup and recharging required after the accidental Halon release caused by the overheated racks igniting some of the unauthorised equipment taken into the server room by the former Head Beancounter.
@Anyone else just a little concerned ...
I would assume that individual user's desktops are running XP but the machines are little more than terminals to a nice large server sitting somewhere. So, no, I'm not worried.
