I just had a chat with one of the blokes from this floor whilst waiting for my coffee to be fabricated. By way of inter-office banter, I described how the coffee machines were like the ones out of Hitchhiker's Guide.

The guy sort of grunted quizzically and asked “What's a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ?”.

After some brief description, he seemed to get what I was talking about, but when he left I had the distinct feeling that he'd just participated in a discussion involving about 40 syllables per minute more than he was accustomed to.

What kind of nerds are they employing here, anyway !?
