Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

We greatly value the emails and contributions we receive from you, our readers, but every now and again someone excels themselves. This is why we feel it our duty to flag up one Craig Poxon, based in London.

"After being inspired by Alex Cooksey's pictures of him wearing some of your merchandise at 14,000 feet please find attached some pictures of me wearing one of your lovely Register T-shirts several thousand feet above the Spanish countryside."

There follows a number a pictures of Craig sporting our white Reg T-shirt, while leaping out of a plane and sky-diving, as he says, over Spain. Upon viewing the pics, Vulture Central broke into a spontaneous round of applause amid cries of "we salute you". Craig, consider yourself a friend of The Register.

We have put one of the pics below (two in Readers' Gallery), but if you wish to see more and/or an Mpeg movie of the skydive, pay a visit to his Web site here. ®
