Tales from TCP Towers

These are the Tales from TCP Towers as spoken by Simon the Stressed, the main sysadmin troll in TCP Towers. They detail the battles between the trolls of TCP and the hordes of lusers that attack TCP Towers every day.

They were written from the start of 1996 until Simon the Stressed left TCP Towers in mid August 1996. Mail any comments on these pages to him at simes@bofh.org.uk.

To give you an idea of why going without sleep for long periods is a bad idea, have a look at my ode to washing up. After reading that ode, a friend wrote a guide to what sleep is.

Just don't ask for an explanation about the water buffalo.
