Back in the '60s when I did that sort of thing, I rode a motorbike out to Eltham to find a party. I had a girl on the back, my mate followed on a scooter with another girl on the back of his- she was the pretty one and he was expecting to score. Mine was the plain friend, I didn't expect anything and that's exactly what I got... It was late autumn, and it was cold with that raw dampness that you get when the dew is so heavy that every blade of grass is weighed down and the mist rises under the suburban street lights. At which point we met the party walking back across Eltham common- they'd been chucked out. We all made it to some ghastly unheated flat off the South Circular where we sat down in a nasty jumbled room. My mate and his sexy passenger disappeared out the back where they got involved in some penetrative central heating. As the rest of us crumpled into terminal jealousy, boredom, tiredness and pissed-offedness, one chap pulled a bottle of Vermouth out of one pocket and one of gin out of the other. He mixed himself a martini by taking alternate swigs. We looked on in glaucous and nauseous hatred. At the end of this foul display, he patted the Vermouth bottle and put it away saying- 'This'll be breakfast.' I was nearly sick on the spot. Wow, the romance of the sixties.

Usually limited to garbled output, but overloading the input buffers can sometimes trigger input rejection. If this occurs there may also be a delay followed by disc burning during a core dump. - RAM failure. One of the main reasons ScrumpyBuzor attacks recur. The system-wide memory failure affects the logging mechanism, making it difficult to reconstruct the sequence of events. This means any attempts to analyse the attack must rely on external records, such as embarrassing photographs, averted eyes the following day, invoices for damage and subpoenas.
