Desperation nearing Mr. F? LOL!

Mr Farty said...

Lesley - Dwayne who? Oh, The Boulder? Riiiiiiiiiight.

Laura - I'm purty sure if you ask the google, it'll tell you what these words really mean, e.g. A Beowulf cluster is a group of usually identical PC computers running a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) Unix-like operating system, such as BSD, Linux or Solaris; they are networked into a small TCP/IP LAN, and have libraries and programs installed which allow processing to be shared among them.

See? Clear.as.mud.

John - Do me a favour and ask Di to give you a slap from me.

"Gooey Front End" could have been a lot more eeuch.

But I realise this is a family-oriented blog.

Lesley said...

Crush me, Boulder.

I'M JUST SAYIN'.

The Mother said...

Thanks for clearing that up. I've been trying to figure out what "gooey front end" meant for a while now.

Now I just have to get the glue out of my laptop....

Mr Farty said...

McChé - I have no idea what you mean. *cough*

Lesley - Steady!

Mother - Hello. Do come again. As it were.

I really should be more awake when I come here. I took me this many times looking at the post to realize that the last "picture" is a video...


D'oh!

Mr Farty said...

#Debi - About that video: when they're about to feed the crocs, they lead all the tourists onto a slatted wooden bridge across the pool. Once you're all standing on the bridge, they press a button to shake the bejesus out of you. Laugh? I nearly shitted myself!
