I think it's because we haven't contributed to his holiday fund 😁

I'm sure he is busy selecting the correct sized hammer to hit the computer with.

Good luck Kevin!

On a lighter note. I assume all are aware of the "origin" of the "bug"?

Allegedly to do with a Failure on "Collosus"?. The huge machine built at Bletchly to crunch numbers. It fused and the cause was traced to a large MOTH or similar on an electrical circuit, Ergo?  "BUG".

Queue, Michael Cain "not a lot etc;".🤣

I heard it was in Harvard in 1947, where they actually removed the dead moth, stated they had 'debugged' the computer, and sent the moth as proof. It's supposed to be still there in Virginia and visible as a museum exhibit of the first computer bug.
