Total tat?

Kudos to Sugar for making so much money off "total tat", Richard.

Disks etc

I thought disk was an abbreviation of diskette, which is a disc in an enclosure (a la 3.5" floppy etc).

How do these tapes go missing?

I've often wondered how tapes such as these go missing. You'd think folk would be fairly shrewd in hiding them.

As Gates strides into the future, we wallow in the past

@John Griffiths

"His motives may well be good, but lets not pretend he's given up much."

If the recent Money BBC Programme is to be believed, he's giving away $30bn. I realise the dollar is a little weak these days, but does thirty billion dollars constitute a token gesture, these days?

So what's in a URL? The Reg URL?

Stuart Bevan

Let's go with the dot com, then

I'll be honest, my gut reaction was to baulk at the idea of going .com. I don't know what it is, perhaps a tedious sense of national pride, but with the general assumption that .com means American, it was nice that sites like the BBC and El Reg championed .co.uk, for want of a better description.

However, needs must, and it sounds like the overhaul is required. I take it there would be some sort of IP filtering which would take you to either us.etc or uk.etc based on where you're browsing from?

Sounds like a plan then, guv.
