3 Big data security analytics techniques

Cutting edge technology of a different kind has taken to the Internet in the guise of the Lawnmower Museum's Web site. With a collection of around 200 lawnmowers – one of which was donated by Prince Charles – the museum site has the tag-line "The British Lawnmower Museum – it's all you need to mow." And you thought The Register was the home of dodgy puns. The site offers you the chance to view mowers of the rich and famous as well as learn all about the fascinating sport of lawnmower racing. The museum is no laggard when it comes to adopting the use of IT. Back in July when it updated its site, the museum issued the following press statement: "10th July 1999 -- The Museum Researcher has finally updated the Museum Web Site. ..." Yes, that's it, in its entirety. We spotted this story coming out of Reuters – we're not sure why. The Internet – you gotta love it. ® See also: The British Lawnmower Museum
