Hacks at Register demand Yule freebies

Eighteen cans of London Pride not good enough

SANS - Survey on application security programs

One of our regular readers has brought to our attention that some Web journalists, at least, are being showered with Yuletide presents. We regret to say we are not, with one noticeable exception, which we will return to later. Janelle Brown at Salon, writes that she is the most popular girl in Cyberspace, and reports that "every other technology journalist" arrives at work to find loads of pressies waiting to be opened. Would that were the case here at Vulture Central. Thus far, we have received only one gift and we do not believe it was for Christmas. An anonymous donor from The Big Q sent us 18 cans of UK beer London Pride, presumably because he'd seen our tariff (see right). No chips, no motherboards, no PCs, no iBook, no... nothing... Take, for example, chip design company Cadence. Last week, it invited a Register hack to a whisky tasting in Edinburgh, sent us the airline tickets, then at the last minute withdrew the invite. It didn't even send us a bottle of whisky as an apology but made us return the tickets at our own expense... In fact, all you PR bunnies out there, we're not getting enough presents or invites to the usual whirl of Christmas parties out there in IT land. Our understanding is that there is a grand total of four parties tonight. And we haven't been invited to any of them.... All we seem to get is press releases, which in reality should be emailed here. Is there any justice in Cyberspace, we ask? ®
