    I went to my local pub quiz, it was hosted by a man in a green lycra suit and his friend Jimmy Saveloy. It included a round where he played popular tunes on a gameboy.

    Since the topic was raving I was a bit stuck.

    Since you can't get Brown Polar Bears, the Brown Grizzly ones must grow larger?

    Went to a pub quiz in a rough area once, the first question was, "What you looking at?"

    Boredom and/or attract a mate in both ways of interpreting flashing?

    Because they want to image a machine with a crappy motherboard, which contains a crappy old BIOS that needs to be flashed to make it PXE Boot so you can get to the WDS server?
