Who has been stabbed in the eyes?

:shock:

I thought the first reference to Boss was in the Dukes of Hazzard.....

Or was it the Boss in After-shave-burner? :wink:

Once again I will get my coat.

I hate the term "Boss" used instead of "end-of-level baddies". I've never used the term, and I never will. It's horrible and another example of people re-inventing well established terms, just to annoy me (ITC being another one, instead of IT).

Well, none of my mates classed any of the bad guys in Galaxians as 'bosses'

What's the difference between a boss and a mayor?

IT used to be called Computer Studies at my school. Mind you that was pre-'86. :shock:

It did in mine too (in 81), but CS is what you do at school (when you study computers), in the industry side of things, it's been IT for quite a while.

I've printed out Stu's apology. Framed it and hung it on my wall. These moments don't happen every day you know ;)
