Cunning missile downs Vulture Numero Duo...

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

One of HP's multitude of PR companies really dropped us in it yesterday. Over at Vulture Central, an incoming Powerpoint presentation about HP's SAN announcements clogged up our email to such an extent that the pipe was well furred for a full hour. OK, we thought, we'll kill that job and pick it up at home first thing this morning. Indeed, we did pick it up, but the attachment was so big that first of all we got the message saying our hard file (IBM Winchesterspeak) was chock-a-blocka, closely followed by another incoming missile telling us that the Win98 registry was in a state of psychotic shock and Bill would re-boot us, followed, a full minute later by a message saying that Windows could no longer load. That meant that we had 300 messages to read when we arrived at work, rather than just 150...which was the state of play when we left the office yesterday. Plus Vulture Numero Dva's teleworking machine is scuppered. So what'cha gonna do about it, PR firm? You know who you are.... ®
