I have a neighbour who tried to convince my wife (a research bio chemist) that these are the dog's dangly bits!

There once was a biz called Bitbucket, that told Mercurial to suck it. Now devs are dejected, their code soon ejected

Isn't that one of the filenames it creates?

They used to be flown by British subs so doesn't that qualify as an official flag?

Dust in time

A long time ago I had a phone call from an important customer in London. The screen on the messaging server we supplied was blank but the light was on. I jumped on the train, rushed into town (only a 35min train journey so not too bad) and got to the client's offices an hour later. Sure enough the screen was blank, now in those days we had manual controls for brightness, contrast, etc and I assumed that they had just turned them down. This was not the case. The screen just looked like it was off (apart from the green light to say it was on), strange. For some reason I forget now I ran my finger down the screen and revealed a layer of perfectly formed dust so thick that it blocked out the entire screen. Turns out that the office next to the server room had a fanfold printer and an extractor fan to remove the paper dust. This fan just dumped it all into the false ceiling and the aircon in the server room sucked it through and deposited it over the 6ft racks and of course the static on the screen did the rest. At least it was easy to fix.

Try living in Guildford

I filled in the form for all my family some time ago, ticked the box as I don't want spam. Came back from holiday to find letters for us all saying that they have set up a new on-line system for registration and have put all of us on the open register and we have to contact them to have it altered, so what was the point in filling in the form? Muppets!

Dutch send submarine to fight Somali pirates

a non-lethal solution

Stick a boat on top of the sub as a decoy and when the pirates board it force them to watch Dutch TV. They will keep well away after a few episodes of 'Ik hou mijn Nederlands' and 'postcode lottery'!
