If you love the nerdy references in the show, tell us your faves!
i don't know that much about computers but i like the bit with the original zx81. it's very short but at least it's about software
Now please never let it don't shut it down just like they did it to Arrested Development.
^^ hey!! i cant edit that! (sorry for the bad grammar)
Arrested Development is a show that we just started to watch and it is sooooooooooo funny when buster loses his hand.LOL!
Great show - I laughed all the time! However, as the series progressed it seemed to move further and further away from computers and tech to becoming weirder and weirder but no less funny! There are some standard computing "in" jokes which should certainly find a home in the next series, such as: - mistaking the CD-ROM tray for a coffee cup - looking for the "Any" key on a keyboard ("Press any key") - a non-tech Reynholm employee who tries to fix his computer then has to call Roy or Moss in to sort out the mess - more sly digs at Microsoft please! - outsourcing of IT work by Reynholm to India (or another nation such as Ethiopia!) - references to Scott Adams' Dilbert if possible. - etc. etc. - computer viruses, spam, malware, etc. A little more leavening of tech to please us techies and stop it becoming just another sitcom. Hint: Google for computer jokes and stories, then let your imagination run riot!
Working Helpdesk for a Law Firm, have come across funny things at times. Here are a couple of ideas: 1) User - "Computer ate my CD!" >>> CDROM drive where you have to clip the CD into the caddy. If not done properly CD seems to spin out and over the drive, inside the PC! So user ejects to find it empty LOL! So far only women have done this hehe. 2) Users who request something to be done that's not possible, then 5 minutes later, sneakily calling another Tech asking the same question! (this really really shits us) PLOT >>> Denholm asks Roy or Moss for something to be setup that is not possible. Not satisfied with the answer, he calls Jen. Jen not wanting to displease Denholm or let on about her lack of IT skills, agrees to do it, much to the dismay of Roy and/or Moss. They then have to try to weasel their way out of the promise Jen made. ;)
I love this show....I see it on youtube and google video. I want to buy the DVD but its only DVD region 2. Is there any chance of a Region 0 coming out?
I'm an e-commerce manager / tech engineer. This program is the best thing I've seen in years! I loved it from the start, when the phone is riningin and been ignoring it... we do it all the time.. cant stand those phone calls! "um my computer isnt working" "how much is a CD drive?" ahghhhhhh!!! ROFLMFAO... brilliant game!!!
you're a e-commerce manager / tech engineer. cool! do you have your own goth there?
every office should have their own goth xxx
I also love that PET round there and lots of macs around, but what I didn't simply get is why Moss never writes URLs and e-mails (google.com, firstname.lastname@example.org?
they had a ZX81 on the shelf - and they didn\'t show it to us????? Nice to see one on your site at least. I won\'t be going out on Fridays anymore (well - I never go out on Fridays anyway) - but I WILL be watching IT. Loved it.
Just because They Didn\'t Show Us That Great ZX81, Doesn\'t Mean We Should Go On About It. I Suppose It was a Small Disapointment But Still, I Love The IT Crowd And There Are No Other Diddapointments At All. Thats a Fact!
This show is even better than a night in retro gaming on my Commodore C64 (when it actually loads) or programming some simple coding in Comal and Pascal. Excellent. C:/ C:/DOS C:/DOS RUN Run Dos Run.
What Are You Talking ABout? Commodore c64? What The Hell Is That!
zx81 is a realy old computer thing...we sold 1 on eBay once
+ does anyone know what blokey dude said ... he ended up saying and we dont want to end up in the middle of invalid memory now do we?
Moss: "have you tried forcing an unexpected reboot?" The user says something, but you dont hear what Moss: "You see the driver hooks a function by patching the system core table, so it's not safe to unload it unless another thread is about to jump in there and do its stuff. and you dont want to end up the middle of invalid memory..........................Hello?
