Neighbour and I have been locked in weekly arm-wrestling battles over whether to call our over the fence ethernet segment either zenNet or mattNet.

Saw this and offered a compromise to call it juanNet but Matty started building a bonfire for his 3rd Inquisition and threatened to literally burn burn all Spanish scum at the stake.

Thankfully his wife Sheila stepped in sayin something like "I don't think that's lawful these days, dear."

That settled us down, but only for another week so I've upped my reps and added anuddah 200 grams - Matty's goin DOWN!
