The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

During his election campaign, Dubya got great mileage out of Clinton's "troubles" - most notably over Monica Lewinsky - saying that when he was President he would give the Oval Office a darned good cleaning.

It seems like that cleaning extended to the servers that hold the White House Web site, as Bush has had it scrubbed of all traces of the Clinton family, the old layout ditched in favour of a rather staid and uninspired boxy design.

The only things left on the site from the Clinton era are pictures of Clinton's dog, Buddy, and Sox the cat.

Incidentally, Bush was as good his word about cleaning the Oval Office and has had the whole thing refurbished in light bright colours.

We at El Reg would like to offer our congratulations to the Bush Web designers who managed to put the new site together despite all the W keys being missing from the White House computers. All that typing on the hard plastic underneath must have really hurt. We salute you. ®
