It's springtime…for IBM…in Germany -- so it must be CeBIT. But on the eve of Europe's mightiest computer show it seems Big Blur may have become the victim of nasty hacking hoax. On the Big Blur CeBIT'99 home page The Register was appalled to find a picture of a booted and suited man apparently goose-stepping his way to the Messe in Hannover. Wearing a supercilious smirk that's probably a direct result of the fact that his foot is well, er, a foot above his head, it is hard to imagine how this picture won't offend people. Surely, Big Blur wouldn't have made reference to such a touchy subject on purpose, would it? Surely, such a well-oiled machine wouldn't have allowed such an invasion of common decency to slip through its own rigorous safeguards? Let's hope it's been the victim of some elaborate and distasteful hoax and will put it right forthwith. ®
