Hamster So, what on Earth (or off it for that matter) is this Hamster that apparently sorts out all my postings ? http://www.waggery.com/the%20hamster%20dance.htm I'm fairly sure it involves one of those systems powered by hamsters running on wheels. It's actually more like the boat in Ben Hur, with whips and all. They sweat and die by the thousands. A moment of silence for their sacrifice. Oh, my, those poor little creatures. I'm thinking in terms of a Hamster Liberation Front. Shhhhhhhh - we have already infiltrated their ranks - the time has yet to come, but, soon, they shall rise..... Pssst! Bunny! I got the shipment of 6,000 hamster sized RPPs (Rocket Propelled Pea-shooters) all set to go. When do ya want 'em delivered? Mums da word. Wink fishin'- What did you do with all the camouflage suits? We can't do anything without them, and I can't seem to find them!!! Shocked Oh - I have tactical nukes for the hamsters - but, I am sure their kiddies (kittens?) will use the pea shooters. There is a weeny hamster death squad on its way to San Diego as we speak... of course, then, they shall be unemployed - so we will all be taking in a few thousand, no? Oh - they are illegal in Oz....so sorry I cannot help.... Er - this IS a non-Craven stealth thread, isn't it? That was very funny, Phoenix! The hamsters have certain demands. The hamsters want better working conditions. The hamsters feel that the board is a good thing, but that they way they're being used for the board is not good at all. It's really futile ya know, the hamsters are reduced to urinating quivering fur balls by one word: "cats". The hamsters will continue to row hard for A2K. After all, if they weren't going around and around in their lil' tank the techies in the datacenter would have no entertainment and wouldn't be happy enough to keep the server on and running. tee hee dammit! Helping the hamsters is like herding cats! I take it they have changed their minds since we spoke? Now they wanna negotiate? I better stop the death squad, then. What are their demands NOW? (It was the head of Craven de Kere on a platter, before - I TRIED to talk some sense into them...) Oh - I have ways of protecting them from cats - I am a famed cat charmer....they need have no fear... The hamsters claim that all they want is to row in peace, they whimpered that just now. Hmmmmm - we know you tormented them until they said that....I see we must act soon... It's really futile ya know, the hamsters are reduced to urinating quivering fur balls by one word: "cats". The hamsters will continue to row hard for A2K. After all, if they weren't going around and around in their lil' tank the techies in the datacenter would have no entertainment and wouldn't be happy enough to keep the server on and running. tee hee I think that your analysis is very perceptive, and I am inclined to agree with you, but the hamsters don't see it that way at all. I repeated your point of view to them several times, and I'm certain they understood what you're saying, but they said that you need to rethink your position. dlowan dlowan wrote: "There is a weeny hamster death squad on its way to San Diego as we speak... " Are they any good at fire fighting? If so, I will help speed their way to the fire fighters on the lines where they can defeat the fires with shock and awe. BBB Hamsters eh.... "If you've got the tube, I've got the lube." -attrib. to Richard Gere It is that kind of thing that puts the hate in the hearts of hamster death squads everywhere... Now I understand. I want to throw off the shackles I have been bound with and join the Hamster Liberation Front. Brothers, we can fight, we can help. We can be the new martyrs in the struggle against oppression. Rise up comrades and let the battle be joined. "Lay on MacDuff." Man, that MacBeth had no foresight..... Yeah, but he was willin' to get off his duff and fight... ... wait a minnit...
