At one point we put (every available) unit in a loop saying Gurple and then left them on for a couple of days. The more the middle managers bitched the more we insisted we were burning them in. After hearing the word a few thousand times it gets implanted in your brain. As we would then need to do something with the units for real they would leave the Gurple Test Area, until one day there was one lonely unit sitting on a bench saying gurple which sounded strange after having been part of a cacophony. After that we used to use the word randomly in meetings when talking to those same middle managers that were annoyed when walking by the hardware. Much like the Smurfs use the word smurf for anything, we used Gurple. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Daniel O'Shea Sent: Sunday, November 24, 2013 9:16 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: C128D On 25/11/13 11:45, Lance Lyon wrote: > Gurple ??? ...listen out for it around the two minute mark: http://www.zimmers.net/cbmpics/cbm/364/364words.mp3 Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2013-11-25 16:00:10
