Why JunglePad.net?

Why JunglePad.net?

This page explains how the domain name JunglePad.net came about.

In the majority of jobs these days, you tend to be allocated your own personal workspace, for example, a desk you can call your own. This makes it easy for colleagues to find you because for the majority of the time you will be in that location.

That is fine for people you work with on a day to day basis, but that is not the case with people such as new employees or visitors.

In order to simplify the process of locating a particular person in a building, companies often allocate name plaques which are strategically placed on or adjacent to your workspace. Some of these are just rails into which letters from the alphabet are placed, spelling out your name.
This was the case with the company I worked for and what they didn't realise, or didn't think was important, was that although the letters were secured in place at each end of the plaque by small screws, these were easy to undo. For those people with devious minds and time on their hands (you know who you are!) this was an opportunity not to be missed.

Many a morning I would arrive at my desk to find that my name had inexplicably changed overnight (there's a clue there as to the identity of the perpetrators). Some of the combinations were hilarious ... others, well, not quite so!

Anyway, to cut a long story short, that is how the name JunglePad came about. Simply re-arrange the letters of my name "Paul Judge" (you will have to turn one of the letters upside down) and you will discover the answer.
