Re: Not just business
I honestly hadn't noticed the upgrade!
I got an email informing me I was awarded the bronze badge on the day I was heading to prison, and I mentioned that to the reporter and they splurged it on the front page. My case was dropped that day. Even the courts don't mess with Bronze badge El Reg punters.
I have no idea what new super-powers my silver badge will bring me. I assume I'll instantly be more attractive to women techies, and might be able to italicise here.
