Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Top ICL exec "sleeps rough with Jenny Agutter" has to rank as one of the best headlines of the year. What's more, it didn't come from us but in the guise of a press release from the services company. Before anybody rushes out to try and sell the story to the News of the World it's all perfectly harmless. For the official statement tells how Peter Slavid, business strategy manager at ICL, slept with the steam train stopping red-bloomered Railway Children actress to raise money to tackle homelessness. And he wasn't alone. More than 60 people from the IT industry were sponsored to sleep rough in aid of childcare charity, NCH Action for Children. It's hoped that the dossers who kipped down in central London last week have raised more than £150,000 for the cause -- plenty even for a "cuppa tea, guv". So, top marks to the PR bunnies at ICL for their adventurous, slightly saucy, but thoroughly teasing release. But you can all go to the bottom of the class for sending the it -- and the monster sized picture of Slavid and Ms Agutter -- via email without first warning anyone to expect to have half the morning wasted waiting for the cursed thing to download. In fact, do it again and we'll make sure you end up out on your ear and on the streets, OK? ®
