They'd just chew the cord until it BBQed them.

I had a pet white mouse when I was a kid. It was quite big, and my dad was convinced it was a rat.

A few year back I was sent to re-cable some underfloor rs232 cables connecting some dumb terminals to a mini-computer. The dumb terminals had suddenly stopped working and on inspection they had been eaten by rats. Just before I was sent out, my boss came over and presented me with a pair of bicycle clips!

MTK - Bicycle clips are what people put around the bottom of there trousers to avoid it being caught in the chain. Also good for keeping rats/mice from running up your trousers or for keeping ferrets in your trousers.

so has anyone considered the differential in a space-time continuum
where e doesn't equal mc squared
but something else...
like the dying sound of a rat snapped in a trap for instance

of forum members having fun trying to change a light bulb
and those being serious linux forum members also changing a light bulb

does it take more perl programmers than python
do c programmers prefer to work in the dark

For perl programmers, there is more than one way to do it.
For python programmers, there is only one way to do it.
