    We have an Eater of VGA Cables who, I imagine, looks like a steampunk Eater Of Socks from Terry Pratchetts Hogfather.

    I tried to help... all I can find is Moss talking about his new cup.

    I feel betrayed by the internet.

    Judging by the posts in this thread, I can only conclude that there are multiple of each of these monsters, stalking anywhere education or IT may call its habitat.
    Since they are never ever seen, I deduce they must be somewhat related to the Grue. Perhaps a genitic relative?

    Of cource there are multiples. They're unionised.

    The "National Union of Mythical and Magical Animals."

    or NUMMA.


    I think they went on strike a coupe of years ago, over proposed changed to the amount of havok they are allowed to wreak. Something about the "international statutes for the restriction of potential exposure".

    I have a sneaking suspicion it may be nesting overnight in the EduGeek office, particularly in the big cables box I keep on top of the filing locker. We seem to have an increasing amount of VGA cables although we have never purchased any for years. It's all very mysterious, but this looks like it could be the answer.

    Ooooh I wonder if the creator of Poohenge has started working here???? If she has then she has made her presence felt!!

    We have the keyboard Kaiser who blows all the keys off on a regular basis. Rearranges keys into sweary words.

    The silvertipped scissor fairy cuts the mice cables.

    Then you have the password elf who steals students passwords and replaces them with something else.

    It's cousin, who dines on Cat5E, nests in our ICT suite. The number of unused cables is growing. I really can't work out where they've all come from.

    Has anyone suffered from the 'printer eater'?
    My very small IT cupboard has been infested with previously unseen printers - three this week.
    Is something nesting??
