After a decades-long search, the writing’s finally on the wall for infamous fugitive Bill Posters, who faced trial earlier this week at a Sydney local court.

Bill Posters finally prosecuted
By The Soin on October 15, 2013

After a decades-long search, the writing’s finally on the wall for infamous fugitive Bill Posters, who faced trial earlier this week at a Sydney local court.

Posters originally denied all charges but was nailed to the wall by an extensive paper trail. “The Crown Prosecutor just cut him to shreds” reported one court observer, “Bill just folded under the pressure.” Following critical admissions on the stand, the prosecution flattened an already wooden defence.

Posters maintains that he is innocent and claims that police and prosecutors have colluded to frame him. According to documents filed in court today, Posters alleges that Detective Rock and Sergeant Scissors beat him to a pulp while in custody.


After initially refusing to comment, Salamanderown Local Area Command released a statement that “on October 12 an incident occurred involving persons believed to be persons and a collision-based escalation.”

The public is torn over the prosecution of Posters, known for his support of local music and shitty nightclub nights. “It’s not a black and white issue,” explained local music expert Mala Informé, “like, in some ways knowing about the events at Oxford Arts Factory is cool, but then everyone knows about them, and then it’s not.”

Particularly devastated were Bill’s aged parents; upon hearing the verdict his mother was visibly cut up, while his father crumpled to the ground.

Poster’s barrister has indicated that they will appeal the decision, dismissing the evidence against his client as “paper thin”. “I am confident that these charges will not stick on appeal,” declared Thomas Pompingdale-White SC, with his characteristic lisp. “My client deserves to be A 3 man once more.”

From the same source in the mid 70s, the student newspaper of Sydney University put out an edition under the masthead "The Sydney Mourning Harold", imitating the respected Sydney Morning Herald masthead.
The headline was "Queen Abdicates", with a similar writing style to the real newspaper. 
Some very witty people in these student newspapers.

The OK button on this dialog must be the same as the "any' key.

Yes this is another one of my prank when coding a dialog box:
Press any key to continue, or another one to cancel.

A while ago, I was given a novelty collection of replacement keyboard keys, including a key labelled "any" as well as "oh shit" and others i can't remember.

Totally believable! A big part of my work was in supporting and extending the use of technology in my school. Teachers are not stupid people, but for some, computers were totally a foreign language.

Part of the art of tech support is to build confidence and not to make them feel stupid.

A lot of older ones are good teachers, but they have a hard time to learn new things about technology.
However, the younger ones think that they know everything and they can mess up a computer in a record time.
As a supervisor of school technology for almost 20 years, I could write a book on the subject.
Tell people not to click on an Email attachment if they don't know the sender and they will do it. Result: 3 servers infected with the Cryptolocker virus last week and many hours spent to reload the backup.

My experience goes back more than that, though the internet was in about the second half of my 30+ years. Little difficulty with viruses earlier. My school's internet started with a single dial-up connection for the whole school!
One pleasant surprise was the willingness of many of the older ones to embrace technology. Most of those at least had the sense to recognise their limitations, ask advice when needed and didn't cause the screw-ups of some of the younger generation thinking they know everything.
My biggest problem was a principal who admitted he knew nothing about computers but still told me I was doing it all wrong, even though I built the whole system! He also encouraged some of the younger ones to jump in and do things they didn't understand, leaving me with the fix-it task. Mad
