Well, that's your lot this side of Christmas. The Register is taking its festive break as of about now. We'll be back next week, with full service being restored sometime after Boxing Day. In the meantime, we wish you all the best and hope you enjoy the festive period to the full, however you're spending it.®
Thanks for the entertaining 2010!
Happy crimbo, etc
Merry Christmas everyone!
and a Happy New Year!
Where's the famous festive banner this year? All the best and thanks for an entertaining year.
yep thought you would had some snow
on the banner
Don't you know there's a downturn on? they probably fired their graphics artist to buy a couple of rounds of beers at the Christmas party.
... to El Reg!
(And I don't blame you for falling asleep in front of Xmas TV, once again it's really crap...)
Present from Ponting
The coverage of the Test was fairly entertaining, mind. Strictly, broadcast early on Boxing Day, rather than Christmas Day, but eventful enough to keep one awake!
Merry Christmas, and thanks for the entertainment through the year.
xmas telly has been crap since the rise of Sky TV and since films come to DVD 6 months after the cinima release...
no more movie premiers that there is a good chance you havent seen... they make xmas specials of programs that they no longer make instead of the current programmes...
But most of all, it went down the pan after Eric Morcombe switched over to the other side !!!
Happy humbug... !!
(joke alert, coz cristmas tv is one)
No christmas banner?
No Paris angle?
No illiterate drunken posts?
What is The Register coming to?
Only me left at work then, lazy f@#$&!'s..
To one and all, happy humbugs all round ;)
happy xmas the reg
good work this year
The wrong kind of snow?
Is El Reg affiliated with BAA? What kind of service is this? The slightest excuse and service drops to zero! Admittedly, it rarely rises above that level even at the best of times! I bet Mr. Haines hasn't sacrificed his annual bonus and is at this moment quaffing booze down some disreputable foreign bar! Bah, humbug!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and more stuff and nonsense in 2011!
and thank you for many pleasant, interesting & entertaining hours.
<- I'll raise one of these for all at El Reg
Merry Christmas to all at The Register, thanks for keeping us all up to date and for the many laughs through the year, enjoy a well deserved break :)
I thought you lot never spared a day scouring the world for an IT related story.... and a few stories not IT related either
Merry chrimbo from the industrial robot programmers
You can't go yet......
Where's my BOFH?
Have a good one everyone, for once I'm not on call :D
come back happy, or not at all as my old boss used to say.
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
I've probably written more comments that are moaning about stuff than ones that aren't moans but thanks for another year of El Reg! One of the first websites I visit each day. For info, my football (soccer) team, news, then El Reg.
Here's to another tech filled year in 2011, maybe this is the year that everyone else realises that us techies really actually do run the universe and should be recompensed accordingly.
Failing that, a couple of thank-yous would be good.
Enjoy your snowy holidays
In this side of the world we have a sunny day and summer vacations coming up, so instead of falling sleep in front of the TV, we can fall sleep in a hammock.
Anyway, a really big thanks for a year of great articles and inspiring events.
Looking forward to a 2011 PARIS.
(that is a COLD beer)
Have a Cool Yule...
...and expect lots of messages from the septics wanting to know what a 'Boxing Day' is...
I'll be here.. bored sh1tless.. nothing to read..
don't you mind though, you go, have a good xmas, go.

Thanks for keeping me cheerful in 2010 - especially the PARIS team, Simon Travaglia & the BOFH

Long may you all revel!

Merry Christmas to all the Reg Readers and Staff!
(Are the moderatrix still working?)
Are ya'll having a nice party, and will there be any incriminating pictures later?
How else am I going to entertain myself?!? I need to avoid the family!!!
Happy Solstice, all :-)
No, I'm not pagan, I'm just happy that the days are getting longer now ...
Sorry, I'm just an ignorant Yank.
Is that a day that celebrates Tyson, Foreman, Ali and Fraiser?
Is this a Brit made up holiday to compete with Festivus?
and a full belly.
Thanks for a great year.
That's TV For You!
Thanks for being a bright light in a dark year!
I hope everybody enjoyed the Fourth Test...
Seeing the Aussie fans leaving the ground in droves worked wonders for my Christmas hangover.
Happy New Year everybody! :-)
Let me be the first
To welcome our new non-Christmas working Overlo.........aah fuck it.
I'll get me coat.
Mine's the one with the cloakroom guy emptying my pockets.
Mer-hic-ry Christmas all.
And enjoy the beer!

Thanks for another year's worth of entertainment and thought-provocation. Season's greetings to the Reg staff and regulars; looking forward to being distracted from work by you again next year...
