    • 'What was your username again?' >clickety click<
    • 'kill -9 needs no justification!'
    • 'Life's not fair, but the root password helps.'
    • It's backup day today so I'm pissed off. Being the BOFH, however, does have it's advantages. I reassign null to be the tape device-it's so much more economical on my time as I don't have to keep getting up to change tapes every 5 minutes. And it speeds up backups too, so it can't be all bad can it? Of course not....Meantime backups have finished in record time, 2.03 seconds. Modern technology is wonderful, isn't it?
    • 'I'm sorry' I say for the 1 billionth time, 'passwords are encrypted on the system, and it's far easier for me to change your password than to find out what it is.' (Which is crap; I know what it is, the password changing routine does have a slight in-house modification which the implementers probably weren't counting on.)
    • 'Anti-glare screens to prevent eye strain ??? In my day, you didn't need an anti-glare screen. With the power they consumed, when you turned your computer on, the whole building darkened!'
    • 'Is their network faulty?' 'No, it's more of a protocol problem.' 'What, protocol as in TCP/IP and stuff?' 'No, more like protocol as in 'When Simon asks to be reimbursed for some technical manuals, reimburse him straight away'.'
    • 'THREE DAYS OFF TO BROWSE PORN!' the PFY cries. 'I LOVE MY JOB!' 'I think you're missing the point,' I respond. 'We're trying to find sites that would be used to promote the company, which means that you'll be grading sites on the following criteria: The number of visitors; Originality and breadth of content; Specialist Content and quantity of content. Once you've rated the sites on these scales you would TELL ME ABOUT IT TOO BECAUSE I LOVE MY JOB AS WELL!!!!'
    • Some days I just look at my Inbox and feel uninspired. Stacked ahead of me are the dull and mundane tasks that'd bore anyone with an IQ higher than their pants size. You know the sort of thing: 'Can you install a printer driver on the server?', 'Can we get more disk on the Homeshare machine?' etc. So, at times like this, I like to take solace in something comforting. >clickety..< >tap< >tap!< ... >rustle< >tap!< >tap!< 'Bugger!' >tap< >tap< >TAP!< >BASH!< 'What is it?' the PFY asks. >BASH< >BASH!< >BASH!!!< 'The bloody VMS machine has crashed!'
    • 'Well I doubt that there'll be any need for anyone to go into the computer room,' The Boss responds dismissively. 'There may not be any NEED for it, but they're drawn towards it like managers to Internet porn!' The PFY cries.
    • 'It's you isn't it? THE BASTARD OPERATOR FROM HELL!' 'In the flesh, on the phone and in your account...'
    • 'So, why tell them to connect a firehose to their machine?' - 'An analogy - big hose, lots of data. Surely no one would've actually connected a...' - 'Security will require a whole new set of machines...'
    • I hear a much smaller >CRASH< from below as the remote controlled lift fails to get to B2, due to the newly installed shaft obstruction. The PFY, bless him, isn't one to be put off and continues to attempt with repeated crashes echoing up the shaft while I put up the hazard tape like a good safety conscious employee.
    • 'So you damaged our machine?' - 'I'm afraid so,' I sigh. 'I'm a system administrator, not really a cleaner.' - 'And I'm a lover, not a fighter,' the PFY adds, obviously having tipped a little too much tape-head cleaner on his Weeties this morning.
    • 'No - apparently he had something with him at the meeting that didn't go down well. In fact, that's perhaps the best way to describe it.' - 'You mean he had a...' - 'Apparently so. He made some wild claim that someone must've chucked Viagra in his coffee, but I ask you...' - 'Weird,' the PFY concurs. 'Speaking of which, coffee?' - 'Yeah, but stay away from the 'instant decaf' till I've had time to dispose of it.'
