"Slough" ? </More Bottom Feeding>
Yet another fine example of Da-Reg slumping to the bottom of the wit-pile again. "Slough" ?
As self-mindful of the authors and commentors here are of their position within the IT community, I'm somewhat amazed at the continued bashing of us Yanks.
I keep forgetting that this last-bastion of intelligence crowd of Ameri-Bashers invented Unix -- no wait. You didn't.
Oh, you've got the claim to fame of having invented and developed the PC -- oops, my bad. Wrong on that one too.
But, thankfully, you've invented any of the world's most used operating systems ... No, wait -- that doesn't apply here either.
Hide behind the "dot.uk" URL if it makes you feel pompous ... Well, no wait, we gave that to you too. Everyone knows where the web came from.
Wow ... all of this Yank bashing going on here lately from some poor-orphaned step-child pissing in his/her warm beer about how wonderfully intelligent they are ...mocking the hand that fed them (and continues to feed them).
Heck, I've been in this business for over 20 years and I can't possibly name a single computer, operating system or program worth anything that has the "Made in the UK" label on it.
Sorry, I'm just sayin.
Laugh all you want. I'm a little busy replacing your "arses" to listen to your sophomoric name-calling right now.
(Oh gee, which Emoticon to choose ? I'm sure you invented that concept too) ... what ? No animated burning American-Flag. Geese, this site is just getting sad.
