Security for virtualized datacentres

While you're tucking into the last of the turkey and mince pies, spare a thought for those who are less fortunate than yourselves - nurses, railtrack employees and the Vulture Central competitions department.

More than 7000 of you entered our big Xmas draw. This enormous response meant that several Reg staff spent the whole of Christmas writing names onto small pieces of paper and putting them into a very big hat.

The job done, they have now returned to the bosom of their families, secure in the knowledge that the following lucky readers will have something to celebrate in 2001:
