Dumbest lines I've heard supposedly Technical people say.

1) What is CSV? (after a discussion where we were talking about storing data in a text based format and I repeatedly mentioned CSV files.)

2) When I issue the command "PUT <FILENAME>" it tells me the file doesn't exist! (After one of my employees ftp'd into one machine to GET a file and bring it to his local machine. I honestly thought he just meant to say GET; no, he was really issuing the PUT command to attempt a file retrieval.)

[Corion]: marto: No, a Sun Balcony, it was an ill-fated attempt to revive the Sparc series after the Pizzabox :)
[marto]: ah Sun, I sold my Pizzabox in around 2005
[Corion]: I used one at $work as a terminal, but those days are long gone by ;)
[marto]: I have an old IBM infowindow terminal to repurpose, I'll just wire a raspberry piz zero to the cable, providing access and wiFi :P
[marto]: the kids will love it
[Corion]: marto: Hehe ;) I've been toying with the idea of soldering an USB (-C) hub into a keyboard and making it a computer by slotting my phone into that :)
