Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Lock up your seal pups!

We're going to draw a line under our Canadian dialogue with a couple of welcome ditties. First up is PC Chef, who kindly attached a pic showing the original buffalo hide puffa jacket in typical Canadian Summer weather. I must say it looks a bit parky out...

Obviously you have had the pleasure to get an Eastern Canadian opinion, now how about a Western one? Unlike our Eastern members of the Dominion, we do enjoy bats and hats. (To the point of having an annual Hat Party, in some parts of this country i.e. Lynn Lake.)

In addition, our lovely landscape is composed of ice caps, mountains and plains. By the way, did you know we walk on water too? (No sweat in the Artic.)

In the spirit of international cooperation, remember to pack your 120V adapter when you come to visit and keep smilin';>)

Oh, we will. To conclude we have Eugene Mendelev from Vancouver with a heartfelt plea:

C'mon, leave us Canadians alone. Well, maybe not totally alone - I've got to admit that The Vulture Mailbag's last installments have been unusually bloody hilarious, but dude - ixnay on the acismrey!! That is all. Oh yeah - one more thing - you guys kick ass! The Reg is slashdot with a fucking funny twist - I love it - and you've got the Bastard for god's sake! It's golden!

Alright then, we'll leave you alone. Probably. Readers upset by this spirit of detente can catch up with the full Canada-bashing story here:
