Bad pun/joke Du Jour -- Did you hear about the insomniac dyslexic agnostic who stayed up all night wondering if there was a Dog?
True Story Du Jour? Might be true, urban legend or simply apocryphal -- "This person worked for the NIH (National Institute of Health) in Washington, D.C. Now, in DC a lot of things tend to be political, and political correctness is rampant. There was one particular lady who was particularly militant about that, and one day she decided to browse her "Network Neighborhood" for reasons lost to obscurity. There she notices a computer that is named Jesus Saves. Now, working at a government agency in DC this offends her, so she goes to my friend to track down who owns this. He laughs and tells her he has other work to do, he might get to it eventually. This is not good enough for her, so she goes to his boss and causes a ruckus. Naturally, his boss comes and asks him to track it down. So he does (this requires him to determine the MAC address, track which switch it's connected to so that they can trace the wiring to find the office). They do this and go to the office to talk to the person. The office of Jesus Saves (Hay-zoos Sav-ez)."
