Re: Holdy Ony! "Dr."?

It's an honorary PhD...you know, like they give to politicians (pardon my French), who do a heck of a lot less to "earn" them.

I find the Register's trivialisation of the title Dr. very disrespectful to Boffins.

SPB Boffinry

We need an organisational chart showing the hierarchy at the SPB - including the boffin count!

It's been a long morning so far, not helped by reading The Dilbert Principle on my way to work & concluding I'm doomed...

You guys are having FAR too much fun.

And, yes, bring back Cash-n-Carrion with all manner of PARIS, LOHAN, SPB, BOFH, and other acronymic delight.
