Your reward will be in Another Place. -- What Boris said, back when he was a journal editor, to a writer who asked for more money. -- AJ

I'm told that my place in hell has been reserved pending my eventual
demise. Haggling over my fee schedule and wages of sin are unlikely
to change the situation. Besides my attempt to save an important web
site from archival ossification, what is it that you find in my
actions that you consider worthy of eternal damnation?

Nothing so cruel as eternal damnation. This is an example of two peoples divided by their common language. "Another place", over here, is a synonym for "Heaven". So, on the contrary, rather than eternal thermal overload, I was offering you eternal boredom or, rather, Boris was. -- AJ

Perhaps yet another place?
"Another place" or "the other place" is a euphemism used in many
bicameral parliaments using the Westminster system, including
Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. A member of one house will
not usually refer directly to the other, but refer to it indirectly
using the phrase "another place" or "the other place". So, for
example, a member of the Senate of Canada would not mention "the House
of Commons" but would use the phrase "the other place".

I suspect Boris might have been referring to his parliament. As for
eternal boredom, I suggest "Don Juan in Hell" by George Bernie Shaw,
wherein hell offers an escape from the endless philosophical
discussions of heaven. Unfortunately, hell offers little in the way
of an alternative for one boring individual in R.B.T., who seems to be
living in a hell of his own creation.
