Security for virtualized datacentres

Flame of the week Before revealing this week's cordon bleu canape of insanity, it's worth looking at a recent letter from Simon Cassia:

Yours must be one of the most amusing jobs in history (selecting flame of the week). Do you write them yourself, or are there really nutters out there who write this high-quality comedy? Keep it coming! (if you see what I mean)

This is not the first time that there has been a suspicion that we knock out this stuff ourselves. I assure readers that all flames are written by the cream of mouth-foaming nutters.

MOOT wtf is a MOOT YOU HOMO talk english not your sutpiD ENGLISH

  • Stupidity
  • Brevity
  • Personal insult
  • SHOUTING
  • Poor grasp of spelling
