Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

We realise it is difficult to build self-worth these days without copying celebrities and so we have brought you a round-up of Access magazine's interview with a host of top famous folk talking about what they get up to online. Interesting enough, none of them said they go online hoping to find pictures of ordinary people with no clothes on. Pamela Anderson Pamie likes nothing more than checking out the Beanie Babies Web site. If she's stressed she goes to the Bubble Wrap site - where she pop bubbles (ahhh). She also recently went to a koi site (those big Japanese fish) to get some for the pond. Hugh Grant The floppy-fringe actor checks out the football scores, but that's about it. He can't quite get to grips with it. John Travolta A true Hollywood star, John gets his minions to use the Internet for him. He's working on boiling an egg. Johnny Depp Johnny Depp reckons the Net is a "pretty good alternative" to shops. He goes for CDs, books and videos, but sadly maintains the celeb aversion to the non-exclusive Internet by saying the main reason he likes it is because he doesn't have to face the public. Ron Howard Top director and Richy Cunningham star from Happy Days, Ron is a breath of fresh air. His kids got him into it and now he uses it every day. "I use it for email and sports scores, and for quick thumbnails on subjects, I find it pretty useful," he said. Sarah Michelle Gellar Actress Sarah (she of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame) is the most Net literate, but, oddly, uses it for middle-aged pursuits. She likes finding and buying antique books to add to her collection, but has also recently discovered real estate. She does get a little scared at all the information there though (so much out there, such little space to put it in). ®
