Since Whose Line is it Anyway was so successful for last week's Friday
BBQ, another Friday BBQ will be held this week. And yes there will be
another Whose Line is it Anyway game! So be sure to contact Pam Ellis
if you are interested in participating. For those who don't think they
are up to improv comedy, this week's new addition to the BBQ
festivities will be a Look Alike pageant held at the end. So be sure to
come in full dress!
Please don't forget to submit your time sheets Wednesday.
Last week the Gauntlet Machine was reported stolen when it was not
stolen at all, but only broken and thought to be stolen. The complaint
was wrongly transcribed, and then accidentally sent to Upper Management
rather than the actual complaint which was posted on bulletin board. As
part of the Checks and Balance guidelines, normally this process is
supposed to work the other way around with the transcribed complaint
posted and the official complaint sent to Upper Management. The
particular point of confusion revolved around parts possibly being
stolen which got communicated as the entire machine in the
transcription. In the end no parts of the machine were actually stolen
at all. The actual vandalism consisted of the screen being smashed in
and an attempt to break into the part of the machine which stores the
change. To add to the further confusion, Maintenance had the machine
sent off to be repaired the day this happened. This meant when Upper
Management did investigate, the machine was not there seeming to verify
that it had been stolen. The machine is now back, and repaired with
money from the Vocational Mechanics and Technology Fee budget for next
quarter (unfortunately this means the Vocational Mechanics and
Technology Fee will not get allotted as much money during the next
budget to compensate). Ultimately, the fault seems to lie with the
Checks and Balances systems which is currently being reevaluated.

We should do Whose Line is it Anyway more often! Everybody was so
funny, especially when Brian had to cook! I don't think I've ever
laughed so hard :)
If you would like to participate in the Whose Line Is It Anyway game for the Friday BBQ today, please see Pam Ellis as soon as possible.
Our web provider had a massive server failure on Tuesday. To further complicate matters, backup data was corrupted, forcing Chook Industries support staff to resort to local backups. However, all should be fixed now.
Thanks to an anonymous phone call, the identity of the Honey Bun Bandit
has been discovered and the employee behind it has been suspended. The
matter of getting the Gauntlet machine back is currently being resolved
and should be done so by the end of the week. It is a shame that a few
must blight company sovereignty by donning the colors of traitorhood.
The laundry machines are not there for employees to do their personal
laundry in. Please don't let it happen again.
A note has been left where the Gauntlet machine was reading "We all get
ours in the end. Sincerely, The Honey Bun Bandit." If you have
knowledge of the origins of this note, please pass that information to
The Gauntlet Machine has been stolen. If you know anything about this,
please contact Upper Management as soon as possible.
Larry Snow has returned from his trip to the Outer Banks today.
Would all EMTs please create a daily on-duty roster among themselves so
as to prevent the similar instances of confusion that occurred Friday.

Subject: Garjoe on Friday
It is Friday, and I'd thought I'd write the Employee BBS just because
I'm in such a good mood. Happy happy joy joy! Hehehe, sorry I couldn't
help that. I had wanted to ask again when the Garjoe Theme is coming
down? Because I'm actually beginning to like it. Fridays wouldn't be
the same if it wasn't up. :P
A sign up sheet for the bus trip to Mexico has been posted on the
bulletin board adjacent to the Chainmail Express. If you have
questions, contact Will Jaffe.
Unfortunately a component has failed in the lift drive mechanism. We
are committed to replacing the component as soon as its replacement is
received. Unfortunately this will not be until Thursday 7 March 2002.
Therefore the lift will not be ready to be returned to service until the
morning of Friday 8 March 2002. We apologize for the inconvenience that
this will cause.
