Is Ultimate Evil related to Evil Dave?  If so, will he discuss the

 Assuming you're not a Masai tribesperson. And assuming that the
 Romans weren't lying about the Celts (Though why would they want to do
 that?)

It would seem to me to be counter-productive.  If you want to conquer
a country you don't spread rumours that they drink their victims blood.

Well why not? It allows you to claim a moral reason for conquering them in the first 
place (which is as
necessary for keeping morale and a sense of purpose among your own people as anything 
else), and quite
possibly has longer-term military benefits, as in The Celts were a bunch of mad, 
blood-drinking nutters, 
But we conquered them anyway, so why don't you open your doors and play nicely, and we 
won't have to
unleash our fearsome military power upon you.

For some reason, the mental image of a horde of wild Celts quaffing blood keeps mixing 
in my head with that
of a bunch of perl programmers in a cellar bar, quaffing TVRs...

Must be the full moon :)

Sure you do. That way everyone thinks they are barbarians, and they don't 
mind you invading them and civilising them. As it happens the Celts were 
barbarians*, and the Romans did bring civilisation to them (insert relevant 
Life of Brian sketch).

You also spread rumours of there being lots of gold and so many pearls 
they lie uncollected on the beaches. Works like a charm.

Sorry to speak up against the George.

It does have a lot of history, and is well worth a visit of a Saturday
afternoon.
Last coaching inn left from a street once full of them, Dickens drank there
etc.
It is also the only pub run by the National Trust.

Downside is that it is not all that large, and gets horribly crowded on a
summers evening.
Lots of students and workers from nearby Guys.
The tiny bar serving areas get chock-a-block.
Also, IMHO, to beer is not kept that well, and I've never had a good pint
there.

On the accessibility front, it is not that good.
The ladies loo is on the same level, but there are steps and uneven floors
everywhere.
The gents loo is in a  modern block out in the courtyard.





Hang the Java programmers

2001-06-04 Thread Jonathan Peterson



While unwillingly attempting to educate myself in the dark arts of Java, I 
came across this in a bit of (official Sun) documentation:

Passivation is the opposite of activation. 

Only a Java programmer could be that f**cking bloody minded, pig ignorant, 
or both. Amusingly, ejbPassivate is a method of entity beans, which look 
suspiciously like on of the most stupid things I've ever come across. But 
then I'm not a real programmer.

I'm going to have to agree with. Never really liked that pub and I
*REALLY* don't like drinking with Medics. And I live with and hang
around with Guy's [0] medics.

In that area though there's Davey's Pot house under the bridge which
serves ale in pewter mugs, port in pitchers, has sawdust on the floors,
no stairs, is quiet and has nice food and also a there's pub in the

That seemed the going rate for the dirt-cheap boxhosters I looked at.

OTOH It makes Nildram's gbp2000 p.a. including 15mins of technician/day to
do whatever you need seem very good value.

while a couple of the large co-locators I considered were 10 hops inside 
BT's tangled web away).
