Well in the scripting department, we have CM's...code monkeys!
:P

I think 'department official' sounds better than 'department officer'.

I think I may have been the first to coin the acronym (in the planning regulations) and I certainly intended it to be Department Officers. It was only after it had all been written up that I realised the cheesiness of the acronym. Oh, well...  lol

I do think that the name doesn't represent what we do particularly well, but then again, it is in pretty much common usage now. I reside in a mire of apathy on this.

I believe (don't call me up on this) that it is to the East of the peaks of achievement and just to the south of the sea of lawlessness. It forms the estuary of the river of change and is in a peninsula of the floodplains of depression, in the land of Maetafor.  lol

my personal favorite is DS as it shows that we are not getting high and mighty.

I like this naming of parts of the island. It's more satisfying than saying 'the south-east corner of the island' or 'somewhere near the volcano'. However, it must be said that our river of change is more like a brook of change, which is a lot less impressive, though it does of course limit the size of the flood plains of depression.

I'd forgotten this one.

Can we have a mire of apathy on SP3?
And a brook of change
flood plains of depression
peaks of change and a
sea of lawlessness.

Can we call SP3 the land of Metafor?
