Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

A kind reader has penned a song which he says should be sung to the song of "Don't cry for me Argentina". That's probably a copyright issue, so we'd prefer it be sung to the song of "Boiled Beef and Carrots", which is hopefully out of copyright by now. If not, how about "Down at the Old Bull and Bush" which definitely is... Here is how Don't cry for me Otellini goes: It won't be easy You'll think it strange When I try to explain how I failed That I still need your love after all that I've done You wouldn't believe me All you will see is a technology you once knew Although she's dressed up to the nines At 600 and 700mhz with Camino I had to let it happen I had to change Couldn't stay all my life down at heel Looking out of the window Staying out of the sun So I choose IPO Running around demanding licenses But nothing impressed me at all I never expected DDR too Don't cry for me Craig Barrett The truth is I never left you All through my wild days Trading at 250 times earnings My mad existence with licencees I kept my promise Don't consider DDR And as for fortune And as for fame I never invited them in Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired They are illusions 133mhz SDRAMs are not the solution they promised to be The answer was RDRAMs all along I love you and hope you love me Don't cry for me Intel... (Geoff Tate breaks down, the crowd takes up his tune) Don't cry for me Intel.... The truth is I never left you All through my wild days My mad existence I kept my promise Don't keep your distance Have I said too much? There is nothing more I can think of to say to you But all you have to do is look at me to know That every word is true See, we do have readers wiff a sense of humour. Please don't sue us, you know you'll lose... ®
