    so that's why they call it Assman

    Teachers get earful of racy XXX chat in Capita IT cock-up ? The Register

    One of our DH did look rather bemused after phoning up the helldesk, I assumed at the time it was due to the census.

    That's priceless I'm not sure they could have mixed the two most inappropriate subjects short of putting callers straight through to the Jim'll Fix It hotline.

    No, I think the ***MAN suffix has its place and should be encouraged with ever more amusing filenames.

    The old PA at our place once issued a phone list with assistant heads labeled "ass heads" to fit into the table.

    I found it quite amusing anyway.

    a system i used to work with built very slowly and sat for ages on a piece of custom software called wancr.exe which iirc stood for Windows And Novell Client Reporting which reported back to a management console who was logged on. This was found to be highly entertaining. Can't understand why.
