El Reg Redesign - leave your comment here.

John Hopkin

Horrible, horrible. Far too much wasted real estate: giant text, large images, acres of empty space. This awful signal-to-noise ratio is ludicrous, especially for a tech website. My scroll-wheel finger gets sore just thinking about trying to find interesting content in that oh-so-fashionable desert.

Bugger the jetpack, where's my 21st-century Psion?

Re: Data entry on the Psion Organiser

You don't need a UV eraser to erase the datapaks for the Organisers. Just remove the sticker and expose to sunlight for a couple of hours or so.

So, what can you photograph?

That Registry Office thing

"As of last week, the government has forbidden couples getting married in registry offices from having their photograph taken as they sign the wedding register."

Anyone care to expand on this? Not that I'm planning to tie the knot again, but out of curiosity - it doesn't seem to make much sense. Is doing the honourable thing and getting spliced now considered a matter of national security?
