Eccles wrote something about allowing Terry to use his (Eccles) account...

Hi Terry,
if you come to Munich you can use mine too.

A.f.p. smashes Throatwobbler Mangrove into tiny little pieces and trampels them

I hate to mention this, but even if you all let Terry at your accounts,
he will not be able to access the stuff on his machine, as:
a)It is a dos machine and needs to phone up the internet to get the
stuff in the first place which requires some serious software tweaking
to do without human input.
b)If Terry leaves his machine dialed into the internet so that he can
telnet into it for a whole month, then he might be able to go back to
getting all his money in one bank.

I think the nice men at demon will redirect mail if you ask them, but
news you have to pick up locally.

It's also a quote from "Red Dwarf" :-)

T.P! Please sir, Ross just accused you of plagerism, sir, isn't he a swine for
doing that, sir?

Seriously, is it? Don't recall it, but it DOES sound like the sort of thing
they'd say.... surely not? Just saw the " Backwards" episode the other day,
Hoo boy, was that funny! But Terry? Stealing? Even subliminally? Say it isn't
so!
Onya, Kiwi, hows the G.S.T over there? Just curious......

Davo.

In the Red Dwarf episode "The Last Day", when Kryten wakes up with his first
hangover:

"Oh ... oh my goodness ... OOHH ... oh my head ... oh... What happened to
me? Damage control report. Oh. Dehydration level, 45%; recall of previous
evening, 2%; embarrassment factor, 91%. Advised repair schedule: Reboot
startup disk, offline for 36 hours, and replace head. Boy, what a night."

Depressing.
