If you're going to do that, then make sure you hire a cameraman to "accidentally" point the camera at your backside - repeatedly. Then you will have truly recreated the "Challenge Anneka" vibe.

That is all.

"...users reporting an improvement ... when the One X is squeezed in a particular way."
Am I the only one that read that the dirty way?
"...and one of my lecturers in computing Trevor Wood Taylor tapped me on the shoulder and said, 'What are you doing going forward?"

I second that...
... we most definitely need some ding-dong!!!
They should also bring back Madame de Pompadour - maybe even to be the next incarnation of the Doctor.
"what happens when someone brings an Apple laptop into a .Net dev team"
You bow down and worship your new God.
Has anyone else noticed?...
