I've had plenty of users call it the CPU - which although it sounds stupid
these days I can forgive them because that's what the equivalent bit has
been called sometimes in the dim dark days and some newbie literature
still calls it that. That's OK...

....but I can't help rolling my eyes when the odd user calls the thing
under the desk the 'hard drive'!

Cheers
Anton

You'd need to search rec.sport.rugby.union for references to Rueben Thorne
containing terms of worship and adoration. You will generally find they only
come from two regular posters there, one of whom is our Scabs.
