Reminds me of the possibly-true story of a disgruntled Oheebhtuf
employee who is said to have flung a handful of metal shavings into
the backplane of a machine under test - a wire-wrap backplane.
To a true BOFH, nothing is unrepairable
If a true BOFH wants a computer to be unrepairable, he will ensure it is
truly unrepairable. The Oheebhtuf employee was clearly trying
for that effect.
The true BOFH makes sure a computer system is as functional as the BOFH
wants it to be -- which might mean reducing it to a pile of slag.
