Im all for the new organisation of the articles etc but have to say Yes, the masthead and especially the fixed width not so good, two chunks of wasted grey staring me in the face and I thought I was in the sub-section or a different website for a second...
disintegrating nuclear missiles
Cant imagine that disintegrating a nuclear warhead would be "safe" maybe if its somwhere that doesnt matter too much, you know, like; *stahn, chechnya, etc.
what a load of cobblers
current office 2007 users are also gonna be up shit creak or made pay out for "upgrades" as the OOXML standard submitted is supposedly just a tad different from what is currently implemented in Off07.

@ Aiding and abetting poster.
In fact (believe it or not) Sweden is a totally different country, what do you base your assumption on that they should similar laws??
It works like this (as I understand it).
The EU has a directive or guidelines or what ever that RECOMMEND an implementation of copyright law. it is up to member states how to implement this. In Sweden it is illegal to break copyright, it is NOT illegal to give a link to copyrighted content!
Also recent EU directives mean that member states do not have to (again its up to them) force ISP's etc to divulge user list info, meaning that the users cannot be prosecuted for downloading the copyrighted material.
TPB does not even provide the bit torrent client!
Imagine the uproar if Saudi officials arrested an American in America for having a bottle of wine? why is the Swedish government even listening to US?
whatever your views on file sharing all of the above is FACT. and so TPB is NOT currently illegal. end of.
Maybe the US will just plant a load of nukes in... and then tell antigua that there not trying to intimidate them etc. theyre just gona water them and watch the pretty flowers grow....
dont like it?
dont like a website? -then dont visit it.
dont like your kids seeing certain stuff on TV? - then dont sit the little bug eyes in front of it with the remote for hours.
dont think maccyD's is healthy? - then dont eat there
while I hat to sound like a stereotypical yank hater (its hard) this type of thinking and vices has in the most part originated from the US. they love to complain, yet keep going back for more.
prob for the same reason they love to read about som starlet popping in and out of jail/rehab/relationships etc.....
"Please keep .co.uk - it's one of the great things that sets El Reg apart from the mass of corporate 'merkin sites. It may be a small, petty thing, but I still get a cheap kick every time I glance at the address bar and think "hell, we may be stuck with American movies, culture, government and nukes, but at least The Register is still British!"
I know the address woul not change content but it just makes me feel like you'll start being just like every other clone news site out there
stick with the .co.uk!
