Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Pressure was mounting from environmental groups today for a total recall of the egos of several leading hardware sites following an unseemly display of smugness.

"Normally hardware geeks are shy retiring people, posing little threat to the environment," said a Green Party spokesman. "But in recent days, Intel's decision to pull the 1.13GHz Pentium III has led to certain hardware gurus' egos swelling to a dangerous size.

"There is a very real threat that these obviously faulty egos will suffer thermal runaway adding to global warming and causing a catastrophic rise in sea levels, killing millions of people.

"These egos must be recalled for the sake of humanity," he added. ®
