back to article Girlie website's user data blunder

Like stripping off chipped old nail varnish and applying a fresh coat, Handbag.com relaunched its website last week. The site, which covers an array of must-know topics for women (no, really), includes stuff like how to pin down your man and pin up your face.

Well I have been a HBer for over six years and seen several revamps and I must say - this is the smoothest yet!

Re: My Handbag...

Losing /etc/passwd (sic) is SMOOTH?!

What other horrors?

Was the Server bought from PC world?

Is the uplink provided by Virgin?

Does the site go tits-up whenever the admin needs to hoover her lounge?

The best of us chaps are fluffy - from the neck, down. Just don't try hitting us, okay, 'cos there's a brick wall behind that wool. Wouldn't want you to break a fingernail, or anything... (cue outraged female contempt at patronising mysogynism) ;-D
