The essential guide to IT transformation

The Sherriff may be an enigma wrapped in a mystery to some folks, but was flattered to find that delegates at the AMD investor conference (no telephone booth jokes please --Ed) apparently felt strongly enough to hold a debate as to his (or her) true identity. Amidst the electronic sackload of emails generated by yesterday's stories was the following gem: "Many people in the AMD investors' conference have concluded that you are a joke... a pen name used for outrageous stories, intended as a subtle form of The Register humour. A minority of us just believe that you are a very young man who needs guidance. This isn't meant as an insult, but it should hopefully open your eyes about how differently the world is viewed by others." (email address supplied) Robert Lewis opines: "You are absolutely right about Intel's PSN. (Just thought you'd like to hear that someone agreed with you.)" While Adam suggests (I think) that Intel will sell you information about P3 owners if you offer enough cash: "… the reason no one has taken you up on your challenge is because none of us who regularly peruse The Register have enough peanuts to feed the Inteliphant what he wants for your info (and none of those who DO have the legumes aren't reading your column anyway...sorry, couldn't resist the zinger :)" (The Editor writes: "I have met Peter Sherriff in the flesh and I can vouch for the fact that he is very far from being a spring chicken.") ®
