Good work sir. I see your NIPS and raise you GROPETITTIES (Greatly Reduces Overheads in Personnel Expenditure with Technology to Import a Torrent of Text from Information Exposing Suppliers), a program I wrote for a retail operation that pulls stock availability data from large text files into a central database.

No good backronym for LINDSAY?

Re: I'd vote for NAOMI

Well there you have it. The Reg is wondering what it should add to its review sections; publishing the effect of a well-aimed mobe (ranging from 'ouch!' through to 'quick trip to casualty and police caution') would set you apart from the competition.

'Whilst some would criticise the Lumia 920 for its large size and weight, our ballistics test (video below) shows that the handset is a new benchmark when settling disputes with the domestic help. Recommended.'

Re: pneumatic cannon and a cowering lackey

You know, if you could get your hands on a bunch of old iPhones, and make the trip to Redmond Washington, I could suggest a suitable "lackey" to attempt this project with.

He has this reputation for chucking chairs out of buildings.
