BOFH is The Bastard Operator From Hell. It is the Creation and Copyright of
Simon Travaglia. Use of the term BOFH on this Web site is made with his
permission. You can read the latest episodes of BOFH at http://www.theregister.co.uk/
or back issues at http://bofh.ntk.net/.
Go on, before I slap you.
As you may or may not have noticed, this site matches very closely an old site
conceived, designed, written, authored, published, supported by and starring
Jennifer Kaye Ringley: Jenni.
The aim of this site is parody. Not profit, nastiness (other than at
lusers who deserve it), ridicule, anger, unhappiness, hate, the inflicting of
pain, torture (there's a difference), lusers, denial of service or indeed
plagues of boils or frogs.
No, indeed, this site is provided to show people where I am for my friends on
the net. The makeup of the site imitates the now defunct JenniCAM purely
because the site's author thought it might be fun idea, and because Jenni
came up with some impressive HTML and it was certainly an education trying to
parody it with a BOFH-like slant. Remember, the word is parody
(not like I'm trying to hide behind copyright loopholes or anything).
This site is not pay-per-view, pay-and-display or even PAYE. This site is
100% free and provides no sexual excitement (unless you're really whacked
out on toner), warez, porn, fun, frolicks or pre-staged shows (unless enough
people ask nicely).
Here you will find live-action, no-holds-barred, come-as-you-are,
life-on-the-edge sysadminning, as seen from the sharp end (and with a slightly
fish-eyed perspective, sorry). There are images of me at work, stories of
luserdomain that will astound and befuddle, the occasional link to something
worth your while in staving off terminal boredom, and the
BOFHJournal designed to give you a freakish
insight into the inside of my head.
If Jenni ever gets to read this I'd like her to email me at
[email protected] and tell me if she has any
problems with what I'm doing. I can't image she does, but you know how it is.
Anyway, this disclaimer is taking far too long to write and no-one's going to
