Thank you... I'm sitting here bored out of my mind at work... it's nice to be able to sleep all day for what I'm paid but it would be even better if I didn't work in the computer room, so many blinky lights it's difficult to sleep sometimes... so I just unplug them... [Smile]

Isn't that the best way to have fun?! [Big Grin]

You could also be like my boss and I, and play a game of chicken by unplugging the UPS to the core router rack [evil] . That's always fun...or just pulling one of the media converters out of it's power slots...."Oh, I guess [insert building name here] doesn't have an Internet connection now." This is all for the sake of testing, of course [Smile] .

While amusing it just wouldn't be enjoyable right now... You see I work for a bank (in their HQ) and I'm the only person in the building right now... even the security guard has gone home for the day.

So here I sit switching back and forth between here and /. waiting for something interesting to read.

Ah, I'm sorry, that wasn't the correct answer. The correct answer was, "the security guard has gone home and I'm patiently waiting for my software to finish switching my bank account with Mr Gates'.

quote:

in a school examination margaret where jimmy had had had had had had had had had had the teachers approval

the sentence makes complete sense when punctuation is used [Wink]

A teacher gave that to us as a brain teaser in grade 5.

He then spent half a day explaining to us how it actually worked.

I'm not sure about that, it makes sense, but not complete sense

In a school examination, Margaret, where Jimmy had had "had", had had "Had had". "Had had" had the teachers approval.

That makes a little more sense, where "had" and "had had" are possibly people or things involved with the examination. And "where Jimmy had had "had" as an unneeded clause that's seperated by commas?

Or do I need to go catch up on my English?
