    Slow news day?

    Stretching the tech angle a bit far there.

    No need to apoleogise, however.

    Get your stripper pole here.

    Is it just me or did this read like an advert for people to buy stripper poles ?

      ...minus the stripper bit... has become a popular exercise / dance class around here (S.England).

    I thought I was reading El Reg....

    ... not the Tabloid Press...

    If it had been a $400 laptop with her work on it, would you have made a big story about it?

      of course they would

      Are you new here?

      Get ye back to Channel Register if it's IT stories you're after. It's Friday afternoon and it's beer garden weather (or at least it is in the glorious* English* midlands*).

      * sarcasm? you decide!

        @Are you new here?

        No, are you? If you were, you might not be aware that I'm the guy with the business making "interesting" leather goods.

        You might also not make the connection that I know professional pole dancers who would be seriously upset if the top-of-the-line "tool of their trade" (go on, have a good snigger because I said "tool") had been nicked and probably flogged off for a few quid by their boyfriend.

        Tell you what, if your laptop gets nicked by your ex, get El Reg to put a story on here and we'll all have a good laugh about it because, well, it's Friday, isn't it.

          If your storeroom was robbed it'd be in bootnotes the next day.

          Graham in answer to your (to paraphrase) "do you know who I am?", you're one of the commentards for whom I don't have extensive records. As are all the others.

    Great story, with great reference to site where 1 could pick 1 up for the missus.

    $400 for a pole?

    This exceptional product is either gold-plated or exceptionally well marketed.

    //off to buy some lengths of steel tubing before the market crashes
