Amorous Badger in QOTW FAIL SHOCKER
After reading this post by Strump about how a little girl is better at hooking up a ps3 than him, I was amused to see a (now-deleted) reply by our very own Amorous Badger in which he said something to the effect of

"So your story is 'I can connect up a PS3 wirelessley'"

I chuckled and left the below reply (visible only in my profile due to ABs shameful deletion)

I logged back on his afternoon and saw AB posted an answer of his own and thought "Yippee he has been active on b3ta so he has proably read my disarming non-confrontational response. I wonder what dubious defence he will throw up along with a deconstruction of my character based on slighty creepy internet-stalkage".

But alas, comment deleted and replaced meaning the badger admits wrongness AND is so ashamed of it he cannot let anybody see it!

Thought you lot might have liked to read about this little adventure!

One time when I was still in school, I went into the computer room to check something on the internet and sat in front of a computer only for a 1st year (with the obligatory bag bigger than he was) to inform me that I shouldn't use that particular computer. I asked why and he responded with, "It doesn't have a server in it." When I asked him to clarify, he opened up safari (my school had decided to purchase 30 iMacs to teach us computer skills that would be applicable in the real world of work *facepalm* ) and showed me the error page which came up "Cannot find server" (or somesuch). Spying a network cable lying on the desk I plugged it in (all the other computers were using airport [apples clever proprietary-sounding name for WiFi which they use to try and trick people into buying *all* their hardware from them]). Upon seeing this the first year called across the room to one of his buddies, "Hey that computer does work, he just had to jiggle the server" ...
