OMG El Reg is a Bond villain!!

I knew it; it takes one to know one (El Reg link on Bond villains).

But you got to be a really evil organisation if you have a main office fully shaped in your own logo ;-)

El Reg makes it to the mainstream too

It seems to be a day for Massive(tm) El Reg publicity stunts, Our favourite redtop even got a name check at the end of The News Quiz on todays Radio 4 broadcast.

This one Edge-of-space skydiver grounded by ANOTHER bout of bad wind

Well, at least the audience tittered at the headline.
