A number of subscribers to Fun_People have asked me questions like this one
(asked by firstname.lastname@example.org in correspondence with email@example.com):

And the answer is "yes." There are several archives, but the COOL one
is Simon's own at <http://prime-mover.cc.waikato.ac.nz/Bastard.html>. Others
are similar, but inaccurate (e.g. what one lists as "The Bastard's still
about" is part of "The Last Bastard" along with a segment called "The Bastard
Celebrates Christmas 95" which they seem to be missing entirely).
If you want there to be more BOFH... you need to find a Pentax K1000 and
send it to Simon (see <http://prime-mover.cc.waikato.ac.nz/Who.html>). The
K1000 is a good, but not expensive camera... there ought to be something on
the net... hmmm... For instance, a quick search reveals this ad:
MINOLTA XG7 with 50f1.7 MC C8 winder G C8.5, Databack G dial C8 all for
$160. Nikon F2 with DP1 finder meter smooth and accurate C9.5 $350.
Pentax K1000 C8 $75. Pentax LX C8.5 $600. Jerry Corwin 612-920-2477 day,
612-920-4784 fax, 612-824-7800 evening. USA.
If someone were to buy it and send it to Simon, I'd chip in...
