#5 - Hacker?

Mr Farty said...

Laurie - Blimey, nice try! I only realised after posting that there was still plenty of scope for ambiguity. Which is good.
I hadn't thought of Shell or Binary, and I'd have accepted COBOL for 12 and SAIL for 10.
Joe won I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! Apparently.

I matched you on 2,3,5,10,11,12.

Sew - Har de har!

Laurie said...

Oh :-)
9. The other programming class I took when I failed Fortran - Pascal.
Not bad for a biologist!

Mr H said...

Never mind all that Mr F.

Revolting Cocks are to release new album called 'Sex-O Olympic-O' in early March.

You're doomed I say, doomed!

Mr H said...


Thank you kindly for my competition prize, gratefully received.

I have but one question. Does this mean that I have to stay in Scotchland, in perpetuity? Because, frankly, the last couple of hundred years have a bit drab, and I'm tiring fast.

Thanks again.

Mr H.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Huh? Where are the fart jokes?

That was a tough one.

Mr Farty said...

Laurie - Well done.

Mr H - You're welcome. And as you know full well, all Scotchmen have to stay home or come home to Scotchland this year. Lulu said so, so it must be true.

Candy - Fart jokes? What kind of blog do you think this is? Oh, very well...

An Irishman picks up a hooker who suggests they try "69". When he asks her what that is, she offers to demonstrate and positions herself accordingly. Just as she's about to begin, she lets rip a fart in his face.
"Oh, sorry about that!" she exclaims, before settling down again. Once more, just as she's ready to begin, she releases an even louder fart.
"Oopsy," she apologises.
Just as she bends down again, the Irishman stands up and says, "No, you're alright, I don't think I could take another 67 of those!"

I thank you.

Mr Farty said...

Right. I've put some more clues in the post. On you go.

#Debi said...

Loled at the fart joke...

These must be PC pooter thingies--no good to a Mac girl...

Mr Farty said...

#Debi - More like mainframe, some of them. You're allowed to use the Google.

john.g. said...

I consider that extemely insulting! But correct. I'll have a bash later!

Mr Farty said...

Anybody else? No? *sigh*

1. Perl
2. Java
3. SQL
4. Python
6. Algol
8. Sceptre
9. Pascal

Well done, Laurie. They're all computer languages.
