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

May Day is fast becoming a traditional day for rioting in London. This year, activists have turned their attentions north and west of their usual stamping ground in the City, to the West End.

That's right, to RegLand, just a brick's throw from Oxford Street where the action is supposed to go off. Shops are shut, often boarded, offices in the area have told their staff to work from home.

But not us. The Register offices are open for business as usual. But we're under siege. By the police who have sealed off Regent Street from allcomers. We can't get out. Just as well that we have no homes to go to.
