and to this day I don't know how he didn't ken to the fact that it was that particular file from his home directory I'd just printed.

TBH, the job probably blinded him to the contents of the pages after a relatively short while.

I discovered that as a SysOp with a BBS. Sure, I could sit and watch users on any node I wished but.. It got boring quickly and I'd only do it when I actually wanted to chat to that person (watching for them to finish a game or message etc).
