    The shoddy-ist of edits, but it'll do.

    It might have stopped working as a flash drive but does it fulfill its real, secret purpose? They use them to boot Al up every morning.

    Yep, confirmed. You're on 3 entries now. Well done.

    I'm gunna use the further edit done by @X-13 below as a way of putting both your pics on the wall without doubling up the octo-bear, but you still get your bonus @nephilim

    I'm trying to think of a name for that Al version... I'm struggling.

    All I can think of is "The BodyguALd" or "the TerminALtor" [because it looks a little bit like Arnie "give me your clothes and your motorcycle" Schwarzenegger]

    Ah, I thought it was a Star Trek uniform and was going for Captain PicAld. I see now that it isn't. *thinks*

    Oh yes. There is a file, and you are in it, so watch out.

    Actually, it's a worksheet in an Excel spreadsheet with a few usernames in a column that say, 'pic', 'morgan freeman' or 'theme song' next to them - just so I don't accidentally award too many bonus entries.

    Those USB keys are cute yes, but the casing is a bit thin and they don't always make contact with the pins because they have no surround to stabilise them in the port. For this reason we'll not be re-ordering them I'm afraid - have to find another nice design that's a bit more robust for the next batch.

    Is that me as some sort of Star-Trek styled Jack Ryan defending the octo-bear from the hunt?

    Re USB key: see my comment to @sparkeh above. The design is cool but because it lacks a stabilising surround, they don't always make proper contact with the pins in the socket - we'll be ordering something a bit more robust next time.

    It's that first line *inserts key* that's got me most concerned about this boot-up procedure.

    I thought it was a Star-Trek (TNG era) uniform too.
