scarecrow explained what the messages ment:
The client walked up to the server…
Let me have some work, please it said.
We’re all out said the server.
oh, well then, give me some work then said the client
We’re OUT of work said the server a little louder.
Ah, I see, the client said, In that case let me have some more work
Sighing, the server said let me put it this way… Do you see the ‘res’ in results?
Yes, said the client
And do you see the ‘cred’ in credits?, asked the server
Sure do, responded the client
And do you see the ‘freak’ in work?, the server asked
That’s silly, said the client, there’s no freak in work
THAT’S what I’ve been trying to tell you! shouted the server
…and they all lived happily everafter… the end
