The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Thanks to reader Chris James for forwarding the results of a DNS query on Deja.com. Deja and all its archives, if you remember, have just been bought by Google. This has caused some consternation, especially since searching the archives effectively is now nigh on impossible.

It would seem that the Deja techies were not too impressed either. How else then would you explain the following domains inside Deja:

The-King-Of-France-Has-Left-The-Building.deja.com.
And-All-I-Got-Was-This-Lousy-T-Shirt.deja.com.
Goodbye-To-All-The-Cracksmokers.deja.com.
Goodbye-Krewel-Worrold-Bang-Bang-Bang.deja.com.
Deja-Is-Frickin-Dead-As-Disco.deja.com.

Well it made us chuckle. Check em out here before Google gets to em. ®
