I heard rumours that this bloke found 5950 of these tied together in a stack behind a hall somewhere in the Midlands. He's hoping to sell them one at a time by claiming they're rare or something.
Anyway, that's just what I heard....
Those of you who can remember when it was all fields round here and kids respected their elders and you could leave your front door open without getting burgled by crack-fuelled hoodies may have a vague recollection of a paper version of El Reg - the first and last issue of Vulture Central's foray into the print media market …
Has El Reg really had the same logo for the past 8 years? No re-branding madness around there then!
But I recall that there was a printed version much earlier than 2000 - it also had a vulture logo, but nothing like the modern one.
Paris, because she's also been around.
If you read whats on the front page...
Every Newspaper should have an agenda...
Helicopter Crashes.... Check
Goverment Computer Projects... Check
Tax.... I'm sure you did a thing about IR35...
Well done Just like every paper, you have broken your promises...
Twopence added. and I will get my coat.
Hehe. If you follow Chris' link to the 1998 edition of El Reg in the Wayback machine, do read Roy's article "When the blip comes". Go all the way to the last paragraph where he's talking about the Unreal engine, and try not to spew coffee through your nose when he talks about the "all time winner"... too funny that.
..that when I got lost at CeBiT and ended up walking past the Reg stand, I didn't take one of these now priceless pieces of printed media, but was more interested in finding a loo because I was bursting for a pee and CeBiT's fookin massive! Now, if I'd wanted Number 2s, then naturally I'd have taken advantage of the Reg's thoughtfulness in this regard :)
Incidentally that was my first and last time at CeBiT and I'll never go again. Not enough toilets (old fookers like me can never have enough toilets)
Dude whats wrong with you.
Your on here trying to bring down the info that's on here ????
Now i really dont get you
why do people like you come on here to knock down the level of info on here unless you actually are just a sad bloke with nothing better to do in his day
The Register is actually a great source for info and i for one dont think folks like you Colin should be knocking the plcae down.
You always get one guy that clearly loves to knock things down big time
Okay, obviously I used the wrong icon. Take a deep breath and read the following very carefully: IT WAS A JOKE, DUDE.
The wikifiddlers have been running a campaign to get El Reg recognised as an unreliable source because they have run a couple of articles that say nasty things about them (diddums). Several editors have called it a "tabloid" - which is apparently a much worse insult in the US than in the UK. I was just pointing out that those dickheads would be delighted to see El Reg looking like a real tabloid.
Of course, they wouldn't be able to use this article to cite the fact that El Reg is a tabloid, because of course El Reg is a tabloid and therefore an unreliable source to be used to verify the fact that El Reg is a tabloid and an unrelia... AAARGH, I'm being swallowed up by a recursive argument...
See what I did there? It's called humour. Now fuck off.
