Okay. I've been off line for 24 hours. The web pirates took me out. Seriously.

I should never have said I hacked the hackers because they've taken offense.

My computer only got released from their grip when LulzSec announced they were disbanding. I don't think its a coincidence.

This is not a joke.

I can't say I'm surprised.

Yawn.

I'm not saying I didn't deserve because I did. I did tease them a bit.

But no one expects web pirates to capture their computer. It was scary.

I phoned up this bloke at the Times to at least get a message out on their technical web page to the cyber world that this kind of thing could happen.

He laughed and said "I'll phone you back" without taking my telephone number.

He didn't believe me because I'm a Spoof writer. He thought I was playing a joke on him. I wasn't, it was real.

Think of it as an opportunity to do other things.

Well, it's not that any more, because it's over now, but it might have been.

It was the same in the old days, when I worked at the Bank de Leipzig, and we ran out of ink (there was a problem with the shipping from India; the ships were being commandeered by tea companies).

We all got a holiday from writing the ledgers.

I learned the oboe and Peterson, my colleague, visited the vineyards of the Upper Mosel.

None of this is true, but it does illustrate something, I believe.

I didn't learn the oboe, but I watched Coldplay at Glasto, which I probably wouldn't have done if I'd been online.

The Bank of India sounds excellent. I would love to have worked there.

Ah a member of the the Hanseatic league I see. The days when sail plyed the Baltic - shame that, no ships coult set sail because of the sheets of wood but at least you could walk to Finland on a Sunday afternoon without getting your feet wet.
