Salmon Days: Keepers of The BOFH flame

Scriptwriters beware

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Letters Salmon Days is inspired by BOFH: it is not meant to be a transliteration. However, the scriptwriters will have their work cut out to keep Simon Travaglia's legion of fans happy. Some, we suspect, know more about The Bastard Operator from Hell than Simon does himself.



While it seems that youve screwed the image of the bofh beyond repair, this does indeed look like a good idea; until one does look.

the bofh does NOT LOOK AT HIS FUCKING KEYBOARD as he types!!! he doesnt get \'angry\', he doesnt film himself at pornos, his boss IS A FUCKING LARD, he doesnt involve himself so incriminatingly in \'situations\' (press your fucking power switch 35 times. he wouldnt stand there _AS HIMSELF_ and say THAT!), he doesnt dress like a FUCKING HAWAIAN HOBO, HE DOES NOT HIT HIS KEYBOARD (as a result of anger), WHERE IS THE DARKENED MISSION CONTROLL??!! (he DOES NOT work in a pretty bright office!!!), he likely uses BSD... WHY DOSE YOUR \'WEB SITE\' LOOK LIKE FUCKING WINDOWS??!!, hopefully youve thought of the pub, the outside skip of dispair (ok, thats more recent, mid 2001, perhaps),
....
i want to say more, however, i guess that you \"get the point\". please make some revi..... no, rather READ THE FUCKING STORIES!!! not merely the recents either; the chronicles begin in 1995, are (the classic issures) numbering in around 1200 pages or so... have fun!!! muh huh hahahahahahaaa....

over the whole, this is a neat idea, one ive been somewhat looking foreward to. if you would like my assistance (but likely not, as score of others have likely mentioned these and more issues to you...) please ask for such from the user / hostname provided (me). in exchange, id simply like to see the illustrations alive of hte beloved works without having to take my pants off and bend over.

thanks...

post script: btw, the paperclip was pretty good in its presentation, however it does say more than \'i see youre writing a letter\'...

post post script: i HAVE read all of the classic issues, at least twice, some of my favs more than this. i have the collection in html (zipped if youd like) on my machine (ive ftpd running...) so, if you like ftp to 130.113.48.220 in dir /bofh/classic youll find bofh.html and bofh.html.zip and bofh.html.gz; please this would be a better start than waiting for reactions such as the above...

dont take this all too personally, the simple idea kicks all ass, so the implementation is just a question of fanaticism (or effort)and tweak... good luck.

i read the Reg every day in case a new BOFH turns up.

Salmon days is an embarrassemnt. The trailers are painfully lame. MS paperclip jokes - how original! Tech guy a geek with a beard in a hawaii shirt! What a hoot! The BOGH loves linux - what a dude!

Get rid of it before Simon Travaglia sues you for putting out crap under his name. You\'d struggle to make me watch this for free.

And to think that for a second that BOFH was gone. I had read several of them many years ago, but I thought those days were long gone. Not only did I find a great site in The Register, but I also re-found BOFH!!

Thanks,

First off, I have immensely enjoyed the BOFH columns for over a year now.

This looks like it will be extremely funny. I laughed through the whole thing practically.

I only have one request. Could you please put the \"Ho-Ho-Howard the Happy to Help Paperclip\" skit on your \"Cutlets\" section. It was, in my opinion, the funniest skit in the trailer and everyone I have told about it found it hilarious. I would like the opportunity to show other people easily (some of the other parts, the nudity, and general IT-mayhem would be frowned upon heavily here unfortunately).

Looks very good. Please continue! Best of luck in this new endeavour.
