the essential Bastard Operator From Hell

many years ago, in a period of my life that historians will some day refer to as the "the army years" i was a lowly grunt with the unique title of unit armorer. it was my job to fix and maintain the weapons and night vision equipment that the unit used in it's tactical operations. while stationed in germany i became acquainted with the maintainers of the unit's intelligence and satellite communications systems, know collectively by their occupational specialities as 33's. the 33's were always frustrated, overworked, under appreciated and generally bitter about their jobs. it was here that i learned about the term JAFO, or Just Another Freaking Operator. (note: grunts are rather fond of the F-word, so you may season the term to suit your personal taste.) the JAFO is notorious for not knowing how to use his/her equipment and consequently destroying, disabling, or otherwise rendering it useless, and then come crying to the 33's to come fix it. as an armorer, i also had to deal with my share of JAFO's. my JAFO's would fold, spindle, and mutilate assault rifles, light machine guns, night vision scopes, and night vision goggles. JAFO's would strike so often, that it became common to use the word not only as a noun but also as a verb. my tension and frustration would build as JAFO after JAFO would regularly JAFO the equipment in my care. i dreamed of someday getting even.

the army years passed and i left the military to pursue my eduaction and to work in the IT industry. like most IT guys, i started at the bottom doing helpdesk/system support. it was here that i encountered a unique varitey of JAFO, which certain disgruntled IT guys called Lusers. the luser quickly became the bane of my existence. even after i left the phones to take on more system administration or network administration duties, they continued to infuriate me on a daily basis. i was plagued by clueless equipment operators who would call me to rescue them from their own stupidity. once again, i dreamed of a way to get even.

a couple of years ago i came across a collection of tales of one guy who did get even. the Bastard Operator From Hell tortures users. he disables their accounts. he deletes their data. he reads their mail. in other words, he shows them who's boss. there are lots of BOFH resources throughout the internet, i have included the first 15 episodes here because i believe they capture the essence of the BOFH.
