    SIMS Sperm Bath

    Something to make you chuckle

    If you thought the old AssMan.exe was funny read on . . .

    I nearly choked just now whilst on the phone, when the Business Manager walked in holding a printout of SupportNet article #23530, pointing to the title and asking me

    "What is SIMS sperm bath?"
    Code:
    KB23530 - What is SIMSPerm.bat and how is it run?

    I'd never looked at it that way before, but i'll forever laugh now making sure that the Network Manager and anyone who has permissions issues has been careful to run the SIMS sperm bath on the machine.

    It's BAT B.A.T.

    It's a well establish Capita contraceptive manual method for fighting off the little tadpoles. Great practice for cricket too.

    Yes, I did enjoy reading that the first time I used that file.

    Another amusing one is the Digital Blue Movie Creator, which I'm guessing from the name is used for digitally creating blue movies...

    Also, and more blatant, are the Gimp graphics program and G-Spot codec-detection utility. Why?!?!

    Two more that have amused us in the past:

    • A bunch of Dell machines that had a mysterious text file called NOBULATE.LOG in C:\
    • The Marvell wireless GINA DLL, version 4, named (I kid you not) MRV4GINA.dll

    Seriously needs a name change! You should see the look on peoples faces here when I suggest that they google GIMP for a good free image editor!

    The digital Blue website was blocked here by county under the Adult category when I was looking for more details on the camera's.

    Had to double check the url at home before I requested an unblock just to make sure...
