Security for virtualized datacentres

Our readers' fertile minds have clearly benefitted from a couple of weeks of turkey and stuffing. We have a fine selection of letters to celebrate the new millennium.

First up is an anonymous and well-reasoned assault on the Reg:

You guys wouldn't know how to report unbiased news if your little 3rd world Island depended on it. Thank God for America ... or you wouldn't know what to do with your little peckers!

Sounds like you need to get a grip on yourself mate. Mind you, you probably do that a couple of times a day as it is, if you catch my drift.

It's not just our content that's gets some people's backs up, it our mother tongue itself:

Hi
I've just read your article Pentium 4 high risk strategy for Intel. I like the article, however, it's annoying that you're using such an amount of specific phrases, like: "...have been super soaraway successes making a lorra lolly for Santa Clara".

You have an international audience, and your article is being refered to by some of the leading hardware sites in other countries. Phrases like these are quite hard to understand, if your mother tongue isn't English. To put it short: We Don't Get It.

Now you can say "who cares, it isn't called www.theregister.co.UK for nothing". And that's probably true. However, now you know.

Kind Regards,

"the-dumb-ass-dane"

Ok, we'll say it: who cares and we aren't called www.theregister.co.UK for nothing. Gawd bless yer, luv. BTW Lorra Lolly means lots of money (Lorra is originates from the way people from Liverpool say lots of and lolly is an English idiom for money)

And there's plenty more where that came from as you can see here.
