    They're rebooting Witch!

    BBC News - Two-tonne Witch computer gets a reboot

    Two tonnes? Sounds like someone needs fewer reasons to eat chocolate, not more...

    (Sorry @witch, you've got to admit, it would be hard for anyone to resist posting that story only messing!)

    Apparently Witch was dirty when they got their hands on her. I'm shocked.

    It is certainly debatable as to whether witch is human or not..but she definitely isn't two tons...at least not yet...
    Although if the chocolate intake increases, who knows
    (s'ok, @sonofsanta, I forgive you )

    Whether Witch is dirty or not is entirely out of the range of this here discussion, but she could certainly do with a reboot.

    You know what, I saw this article, contemplated posting this very thread, and then decided that I didn't fancy being on the end of a two-tonne sense of humour failure!

    But, on the other hand, the more I read about Bletchely Park, the more I am looking forward to my planned spring road-trip to duxford, the imperial war museum, the FAST farnborough museum and BP.

    I was at BP and TNMoC last month. If you can, I would advise more than one day for it, unless you can be there literally from open until close - there is a lot to see. The Insight Guided Tour is also well worth it for the museum.

    Not mine, I hope? Besides, you've met me, and I would be hard pressed to have put on that much weight in the 7 odd years since then!!!!

    My preliminary plan is:
    Leave Wednesday afternoon, get 2/3 of the way to Duxford, stay overnight with friends.
    Go to Duxford on Thursday, stay with the same friends Thursday night.
    Down to BP, visit BP and TNMOC on Friday and Saturday with a b&b close by overnight Friday.
    To friends in Greenwich overnight Saturday.
    Imperial war museum on Sunday when I hope it and London will be quieter (I hate London.)
    Overnight with the same friends and go to FAST on the way home on Monday...

    It's me and a small group of like minded friends having a road trip so we will be able to share driving.

    I know, I know, but I wouldn't want to be seen to be casting aspersions...

    I almost did the same, except I have no willpower, and no sense of what jokes are appropriate to make or not so I just make them all. Had a massive falling out with a family member last month because it turns out that calling her ginger actually really offends her. Whoops.

    I do nothing for the stereotype of IT workers being socially awkward.

    .
    Can't see why it wouldn't be funny - I patently am not, nor could I ever be 2 tons so it is not something I could take offence at.
    I am also a redhead. Dont see why calling someone ginger is an insult. Mind you, my son who is also ginger used to get other kids coming up to him and saying "your're ginger, you are" which he never really understood.
    BUT you need to see how people are taking your jokes and refrain if they plainly dont like it!
    AND APOLOGISE if you have hurt someone's feelings!
