Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

A boob at Excite.co.uk seems to have mysteriously connected William Hague with women's chests.

One vulture-eyed Register reader today spotted that all was not right with the excite.co.uk search engine.

While hunting for sites under the word "tits" (obviously someone with too much time on his hands), he found that top of the list of Websites on offer was www.conservative-party.org.uk.

Tory head office was none too pleased when told of this spurious connection, with one representative promising to "enlighten our online people" immediately.

"We'll see what we can do," she said, adding that the Conservatives did not want to be connected with this "slang term".

It is all very baffling - the metatags in the site do not hint at these female features. What's more, it does seem disgraceful that punters looking for tits online should get this type of offensive material thrust in their faces.

Excite's spin machine Nash refused to comment this afternoon - nothing to get off their chests, apparently. But The Register will be demanding they make a clean breast of it as soon as possible. ®
