    What sort of puppy?

    Hmmmm, what sort of puppy? a terminally ill dog that is about to die? one that is a sick puppy? one that was abused mistreated and on 'death row' anyways? one with rabies?

    *shrugs*, I'll signup anyways, its actually a decent reason to skip a lecture... hmmmm, half tempted to let my lecturer know, but he might actually get our lecture group to sign up and then mark us on it...

    Think of the Food Miles! Put the bloody thing in a sack with a couple of bricks and drop it in the nearest river.

    Great timing El-Reg

    Holy Hannah - you lot call yourselves a UK focused news outlet - the timings for this e-Thingummywotsit are frankly ridiculous. If you think I'm staying chained to my bleedin' desk until after 8pm just to listen to a bunch of Yanks waffle on about some stuff that I've been using for a few years already then you've got to go and see your collective doctor - he needs to increase the dose of your medication!!!

    Is Michael Vick Involved with this?

    I'd think so, but he's already in the dog-house..

    Will e-coffee be provided?

    Also e-biscuits. The fancy e-chocolate ones, mind. Not your nasty cheap "family value pack" rubbish.

    I only go to seminars that offer free coffee and biscuits. I usually find that I need the caffeine to stay awake beyond the first five minutes of waffle.

    Anyone for Puppy curry?

    I'm sorry Puppy but I would rather shoot my cat than suffer through anything that calls itself an "e-symposium".

    In fact, anything that starts with an e- or an i- is an INSTANT turnoff for me these days.

    Now it if was a d-symposium on the premature termination of marketing personnel (d- for DEATH!) then I'd be on board like a shot.

    I'd even bring my own Chainsaw! <LOL>

    UK version...?

    > "The program looks promising."

    This is supposed to be the UK version of El Reg, yes? Then why are we suffering from American English spellings!?

    Especially when the link location itself ( gives the article's author plenty of help spelling such a troublesome word - with all those tricky "m"s!

    Damn right guys - all that's wrong with the Reg is the American stuff - the Atlantic ain't wide enough.
