Isn't Technology Wonderful?

Mes Amis

When you use a computer, you should add at least ten percent more time than you think you'll need.

In my case more like two hundred percent. When you're working to deadline, this lovely wee thing likes to really screw your brain around at the eleventh hour. But I'm back on track. He says, hoping against hope.

In other news, there's a Dalek on the shop floor at my new job. Like, a full size bastarding Dalek. Fantastic! And we can make it shout at children and people walking past.

Suffice to say, Russel has been easily amused the past few days.

Au revoir

Given your size, Russ, you could probably climb inside the Dalek and live there rent free!

How cool would that be?

THE ABERDONIAN WILL NOT MOCK RUSSEL'S STATURE! IF YOU CONTINUE WITH THIS BEHAVIOUR YOU WILL BE EXT-ER-MIN-A-TED!

fear not! I read the notice on the dalek and the most threatening thing it warns you of is "cutting yourself on a pointy bit"
Could you imagine? The good doctor would have to hurl himself on a sharp bit and then race off with something akin to a paper cut.
Oh and russel doesn't have as good a timing on the dalek talky button as his boss who can frighten people Juuuuuuust right.

Pfft. Daleks are crap. All you need to do is stuck some brown mush on their seeing widget and they go mental, end up blowing themselves up. That's what happens when you allow the highly-strung to evolve.
