@Maerchenprinz
Do you want to say that Otto is the current WAU union leader?
I thought that Otto was in early 2000 replace by HAL9000 do to the moon flight incident in 1999 and a Millennium bug that increase his intensity.
Or am i confused with R.O.K 4000 from IGAAU (Inter Galactic Auto Astronaut Union)?

No, Mr. Otto P. Lot was never affected by the millenium bug but was in need of some patches anyway due to his age, so had to retire from active work. He focused on his career in the union then, to achieve a top position with an inflated salary, as some say...
I have never heard of the IGAAU, i think you made that up! Don't do that, this is a serious topic!

@Maerchenprinz
I am not supersize that you have never heard about the IGAAU is not so well known as the WAU and wand to fly under the radar (pun intended) at least for SOL.
Some well known mebers of this union are AGC, IBM AP-101B flight computers, HAL 9000, R.O.K 4000, LCARS and R2-D2. Correct me if i missing some.

i've shared this everywhere else so i'll share it here, too...
An 85 year old couple is going on holiday, when they suddenly die in a plane crash. They had been married for 60 years and kept in good health due to their healthy diet and regular exercise.

When they reached heaven, St. Peter took them to their mansion. It was decked out with a fully stocked cooking facility, master bath suite, and their very own jacuzzi. As his wife 'oohed' and 'aahed' at their new possessions, the old man asked Peter how much all of this was going to cost.

"It's all free," Peter replied. "We are in heaven, after all."

Next they surveyed the lush championship golf course behind their home where they were entitled to play everyday. All the old man wanted to know was "How much are the green fees?"

"It's free!" came the reply.

Next, they went to the club house and saw the lavish buffet with all of the world's different cuisines on offer. Every meal was cooked to perfection.

"How much do we have to pay for two?" asked the old man.

"Don't you understand, yet?!" Peter replied, exasperated. "It's all free, you're in heaven!"

"Well, where are the low fat and cholesterol tables then? The food won't have too many calories, will it?" the old man asked, looking quite worried.

"That's the best part of heaven," Saint Peter said, excitedly. "You can eat as much of whatever you want, and you won't gain a single gram!"

With that, the old man went into a fit of anger, throwing down his hat and stomping on it wildly. His wife and Peter tried to calm him down, asking what was wrong.

The old man looked at his wife. "This is all your fault!" he screamed! "If it weren't for you and your blasted bran muffins, I could have been here ten years ago!"
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

I know right. Unfortunately some years ago a long drawn spam campaign advertising renovations of said room in IIRC a part of London posted spam several times a week, often several times a day. After some time one of our admins (not mods) got fed up and set up a filter that blacklisted said room from being in posts. It at least slowed down the posts.

i know how that goes... i've done the same on several of the phpBB sites i've managed... then we tightened things up by using some anti-bot tools in phpBB... nothing external was added or any addons that we had to update when phpBB was updated... some humans may be inconvenienced a little but but today there are no bots at all on those systems nor are there any spam posts any more... none, naught, nyet, nadda...

the main trick was to use things that a real human would know about the site or products the site promoted... things that were not able to be found via any search engine... it has been several years since we had any spam on those systems... that kinda makes me laugh, too :mrgreen:
