    Things you'd never hear on a film about computers

    Just something daft. What wouldn't you hear on a hollywood blockbuster about computers?

    Something like:

    Jack Bauer: "Send me the files now!"
    PFY: "Sending them"
    Bauer: "S***. BSoD! Connect me to the techs"
    PFY: "Patching..."
    Techs: "CP Wordle, the guys of tech. How can I help?"
    Bauer: "I'm being held at gun point and need my laptop but it just BSoD"
    Techs: "Do you have your account number?"

    'Just download all the files you find to the disk you have'

    'Erm, there's 750GB, and I only have one floppy, and this computer doesn't even have a floppy drive!'

    "Wait a minute......In the far right-hand corner of the picture....See that blob? Enhance it.....Bring it in....Can you show it at less than 4 miles?...Ok, enhance again""

    "Oh!"

    "Yep, thought so.... That, my friend, is the face of Carlos the Jackal!"

    "Ummmm...Boss...With only 3.5megapixels, the resolution is sooo poor that that could be just about anyone who has a head!"

    "Yep...so go arrest him!"

    "You know, I think there may be a glitch in the system somewhere"

    "And why would that be?"

    "Well, I set that bomb to go off about 20mins ago....Now, I gave it a 10 minute fuse, and put the countdown on your PC screen...see it?...Yep, just there! Right, so we've been chatting for a couple of minutes now, and the countdown has still only got to 8:58 and counting"

    "Is this because of the rip in the space\time continuum?"

    "We have a problem sir!"

    "Yeah?"

    "In exactly 14 minutes our systems will start behaving eratically"

    "How?"

    "Millenium bug Captain"

    "The millenium bug happened nearly 38 years ago!"

    "Yes sir, but we run on unix"

    "And?"


    "Well sir, I don't have time to explain, but there's a whole s*** storm coming our way in 14 minutes!"

    Plus he's not even taken #99 into account: "Any data file of crucial importance will be padded to 1.45Mb in size."
