hadn't gotten back to us?
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't part of the charm of El Reg that it's written by people for whom English is the ir first language.
Seeing Americanisms like "gotten back to us" creep in rather upsets my digestion.
what next... no "u" in colour and we have to start misspelling words so spellcheck will recognize them?
As a Brit who moved to Australia and now lives in the US I find the differences and the blurring of the variants on English fascinating. I do hate that my daughter is now starting to sound like an extra off 90210 though!
