Email went round at work, to all in the Unix team, about the Splunk Forwarder, except he missed the 'l' off.....

Back in the pre-digital age I've had quotes typed out for me mentioning '25% disocunt' but my favourite was a disgruntled invoice typist announcing to all in the office 'Everything must go on an invoice, even if it's John Morley (head honcho) wanting a screw'. We were industrial door manufacturers....

The 70's office (well 80's), have you ever used your dictaphone (no, I always use my finger, phnarr-phnarr), comptometers (referred to as 'whizz-bangs'), two phones on desk, one external, one internal and the hours of fun we had swapping the receivers round when a colleague had gone for a mid-morning poo, then dialling him up....

I remember in the gents someone had written something in tiny letters in the bottom of the toilet door, so you had to lean down and forward to read it. It said 'You are now shítting at 45 degrees', aside of one that said 'Beware of homosexual limbo-dancers'.
