Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sources close to one of the 50 HP branded cabs that now exist in Londinium told us a terrible tale yesterday evening and it turns out to be true. We were in the back of an HP taxi on our way to the Reading Jazz Festival when the news hit us. Hugh Jenkins, who now runs HP's enterprise server division in the UK, and formerly known to everyone as a bluff and dry Yorkshire geezer, was actually born in Wendover. The story is interesting in the extreme. Hugh is very interested in British game cricket and so was his dad. His dad was rushing his pregnant wife to the Scarborough, Yorkshire, cricket festival, when Hugh's mum said: "We have to stop here". Here turned out to be a Little Chef in Wendover, where Hugh was duly delivered, as a boy. In the old days, you had to be born in Yorkshire to be able to play for the County team…and that's why Hugh's dad was in such a hurry. By a bizarre fluke, Hugh and our local Intel rep, both went to the same club in Doncaster, checking out the talent. But that's a different story… ®
