Big Bertha Thing toga
What's a First Aid Tent?
What's a toga party, in "Animal House" by National Lampoon?
In "Mean Machine" starring Burt Reynolds,
he said "If it worked once, it should work twice. Lets do it!"
With the First Aid Tent, it worked twice,
so it should work three times.
The first two battles of cyberspace each started,
when a first aid tent was set up.
The first was set up on the OUSA Classical Particle conference.
The second was set up on four conferences,
in the pseudo Student Research Faculty.
Needless to say both the conference and
the faculty were subsequently closed down by order.
"It's a tale to gladden the ears and to grow old listening to,"
said the giant in the "Chronicles of Thomas Covenant."

Why do you keep posting this message on comp.std.c; as far as I can
tell, it's completely irrelevant to that newsgroup.
Big Bertha Thing reason (see at end)
I'm sorry; I can't make head nor tail of your "reason".
Your wizard address does not work, even though you use it on usenet.
Most people have no trouble reaching me at that address. Perhaps as a
known spammer my ISP filters you out when you try to mail me at the
wizard.net address? However, in that case it's odd that you can reach
me through my NASA address; NASA usually has much better filters than
my ISP does.
For a strategic overview you need to see;-

Hey! I've just found out, something really interesting.
For the next three months, this conference is the only
crap-shoot in town.
So step right up and try Big Bertha, otherwise known as
Just two things;-
1. If you see someone slogging away, but doing it all wrong.
Please remember, a great effort, with no results, is worth
more than a great result with no effort. The first is purchased
at great cost and the latter, in terms of cost, is worthless.
2. If it is not broken, do not fix it. Some parts of the project
may need repairing. If you cannot fix it, with a good suggestion,
then do not take it apart, in the first place, with a bad one.

There is an old joke about prisoners, who know all the old jokes,
so they gave them numbers. A new prisoner on finding out what is
going on, decides to call out a number. Nothing. Zilch. Dinada.
On querying this, he is told, that it is the way he tells them.
The parts of Big Bertha called common are based on this principle.
