This should be fun
My memory is flaky,
Edinburgh, Newcastle or Sheffield I think.
Did you know that Bob Howard of The Laundry Files is named after the BOFH? SciFi Author Charles Stross has published a new chronology of his popular Laundry Files series, in which he details future books in the series. The Delirium Brief, due in June 2017, will open with protagonist Bob Howard “being grilled live on Newsnight …
And in the short story "Pimpf" Bob acquires an assistant whose initials are PFY, and handles a situation in which a user inadvertently does something horrible involving a computer due to lack of Clue. It's basically a BOFH story set in the Laundry. Which is one or indeed several of the reasons why for years I've been of the belief that Simon Travaglia - which translates as "He has heard torment", BTW - is a pen name of Stross.
When "gas explosion," "gas explosion setting fire to a chemical store" or "gas explosion setting fire to a chemical store whose fumes cause hallucinations" no longer cuts it.
And then you start having to tell something closer to the truth.
And then things get interesting.
