Ep. 425 charachter swap?

Is it just me, or did Fenwick morph in to Fletcher in ep. 425?

My my! You're quite correct! There's a transformation one doesn't see every day! I could attempt to claim it's quite common for signalmen in the Royal Navy Airship Service to change their names after undertaking extended operations in the South Pacific... but it's far simpler to admit that as typographical errors go, this one was quite a wonder, and fix it :)

Thanks for spotting it!

And now the real question is whether the Signal Corps uses vi or EMACS? :D

Hmm... perhaps ed?

But it seems that the Signal Core has already erased traces of their "cover story" from the ether, leaving the rest of the world to wonder at their mysterious ways ;)

The Signal Corps uses the GNU version of EMACS. Each new episode is generated by loading a copy of 'Carry On Jeeves' in combination with 'Battlebags: British Airships of the First World War' and invoking the Dissociated Press command. Works like a charm!

The graphics are generated by dropping paint balloons from a hang glider onto a large white tarpaulin, thought it can take several hundred tries to get a recognizable image :)

As good a reason as any to make several hundred hang glider flights. ;)

I was hoping for Open Office Writer. But must have my hopes dashed. Do you at least use RHEL?
