Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

We are proud of what we see as a pretty good relationship with you, the readers. But then we were surprised when Christian Treczoks and Edith Geradz from Cologne in Germany literally turned up on our doorstep.

Considering we'd also all had a very drunken Reg dinner the night before, the arrival took on a surreal air. ("I thought it was Thomas [C. Greene, our US hacking expert who is also in the UK [for a holiday] doing a silly accent," explained Sean [Fleming, our content king], who had hit the entry buzzer.)

Christian, sporting a smashing beard à la Open University, explained that while he was in England on holiday he thought he'd pop round and meet those that ran his favourite site. He didn't give us any exclusive story material but heartily thanked us for all our stories over the years. We were very touched and gave them both a Reg T-shirt.

And then they left, strolling off into the sunset. We went down the pub.

Disclaimer We would like to warn readers that we cannot guarantee pleasantness and free T-shirts to an unannounced arrival. It's pretty much a Russian roulette kinda gamble. But then would you expect anything less? ®
