Re: He is in fact almost right.....

Whilst we're talking dimensions, has anyone else stumbled upon a short si-fy-ish story about a one dimensional "dot" who visited a 2 dimensional world where he met a line and they both travelled to a 3 dimensional world and, I forget what happened next....

Aaaah! I think I've found it thanks to later commentards. Have a pint.

How long does it take an NHS doctor to turn on a computer?

Re: Doctors are not bright

Correct me if I'm wrong but Doctors assess situations, ask questions, perform diagnostics & propose courses of action. Sounds like IT & many other areas of engineering to me. ie IT'S A LIFE SKILL.

Boss hands dunce's cap to chap who turned off disk monitor

Pedigree-Pete

Kettles & Toasters & other things that trip mains RCDs.

Once we'd grown large enough to require something more organised that "floppy-net" we installed a DEC P60 Novel Server.

Locked in the room that served as the warehouse, hardwire into a switchless socket so no chance of accidentally turning it off or unplugging it.

Feeling pretty smug about power we couldn't understand why the server kept shutting down.

Turns out it coincided with tea & toast time. The hardwired "server" power was on the same ring as the kitchen.

New ring installed, UPS purchased.

Happy birthday, Amiga: The 'other' home computer turns 30

Pedigree-Pete

Anyone for Elite...

uncovered my Amiga in the shed last weekend. Months of fun trying to achieve Elite status. It does have a colour screen but being in the AV biz, we preferred to use a 28" Barco CRT monitor. Elite for PC was rubbish by comparison at the time, even with state of the art Hercules Gfx boards.

Soon your car won't let you drink. But it won't care if you're on the phone

Pedigree-Pete

Re: Slippery Slope Indeed....

You only have to be near your car with the keys to be knicked under "intent to commit an offence"

An SA friend of mine living in the UK opted to stay home & watch Ruby ( England vs Springboks) & consequently drink, lots, whilst his wife went shopping. She returned at full time so he went to empty the car whilst she got a cupa.

Naturally, he had the car keys & had quaffed a few.

Plod thought it in the best public interest to try & arrest him for intent to drive whilst under the influence

on his own driveway.

Go figure.
